Ebenezer Clinic, Kingdom of eSwatini (Swaziland)

Huge thanks to Dr. Dee Wevill for making the journey from Birmingham to give us a very inspirational insight into Swaziland and the work (and challenges) of Ebenezer Clinic. Ebenezer Clinic is our international charity for this Rotary year. We have donated £450 to Ebenezer so far and agreed that this would be used to provide an autoclave. (This is used to sterilise medical equipment on site. Currently, equipment has to be sent away to sterilise.) We look forward to providing further support to Ebenezer as the year progresses.
