LOCAL ROTARY CLUB PRESIDENT BHARWANEY ANSWERS CALL FOR HELP FROM LIBERIA


The Edgware & Stanmore Rotary Club is the first club in Rotary’s London District to join the fight against ebola.  Earlier this month, on 10th September, Club President Suresh Bharwaney, responded to a call for help from David Frankfort of the Rotary Club of Monrovia in Liberia.  Mr Frankfort explained that the Liberian Ministry of Health had run out of paper to help trace contacts to control the spread of disease.  Mr Bharwaney immediately ordered his Monrovia-based business, Royal Stationery Stores, to deliver 10 reams of paper (A4) together with a Photocopier and cartridge to the Monrovia Club, whose members equally promptly passed it on to the Ministry.

Peter Bradley is Edgware & Stanmore Rotary’s International Chair.  He is in daily contact with Monrovia Rotary’s David Frankfort about ways to help, of which the paper for the Ministrty of Health is a good example.  As he says:   “Supplying a large amount of paper may not be glamorous, but it is very useful in a country currently as poor as Liberia.  Suresh’s gift means that hundreds of lives can now be saved because he provided the paper which was urgently needed for tracing contacts.”
