News Press Release

ROTARY CLUBS OF THE BAHAMAS DONATES BLOODMOBILE
Dated of posted : 2010-04-22

 

Rotary Donates Bloodmobile to the Bahamas
 ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
 
Princess Margaret Hospital and Doctors Hospital in the Bahamas are the proud recipients of a new state of the art bloodmobile destined to travel around the Bahamas and family islands to collect blood donations and ultimately save lives. All of the blood collected from donations will be shared equally between the two blood banks. 
 
The “Rotary Clubs of the Bahamas Blood Mobile” came to fruition by a joint fund-raising effort by the Rotary Clubs of The Bahamas, District 7020, Rotary Clubs of Florida, District 6980, Rotary Clubs of Georgia, District 6900 and the Rotary International Foundation which was funded by a matching grant from Rotary International and was one of only 16 such competitive grants provided worldwide this year. The project enables Rotary to present a fully equipped vehicle for the two hospitals to work together for the benefit of both blood banks and the country. Rotary will also serve as a catalyst to provide a new dynamic for getting blood donations. 
 
The unique custom vehicle built by specifications from OBS Inc. in Ohio, the Rotary Clubs of the Bahamas Bloodmobile was driven down through Georgia and Florida to pay a visit to the Rotary Clubs that participated in the funding of the bloodmobile. The first of its kind in the Bahamas and District 7020, the Rotary Clubs of the Bahamas Blood Mobile is destined to save lives, one drop at a time through the efforts of Rotary and the blood banks. Designed to host blood drives in Nassau and through the family islands by ferry service, the bloodmobile will reach more of the Bahamian' population to collect blood and provide education about healthy living.
 
Many thanks to the other organizations who have contributed to the Rotary Clubs of the Bahamas Bloodmobile: Tropical Shipping, Sunshine Insurance, Tavares & Higgs, Bahamas First, and Creative Spot Design.
 
Rotary International is the world's first service club organization, with more than 1.2 million members in 33,000 clubs worldwide with nine Rotary Clubs in the Bahamas. Rotary club members are volunteers who work locally, regionally, and internationally to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, promote peace, and eradicate polio under the motto Service Above Self.
