The Rotary Club of Limavady - News Detail

 

Mercy Ships
Consultant Anaesthetist Dr. Michael O'Brien (centre) with Limavady Rotary Assistant District Governor Peter Jack and President Maureen Magowan. Dr. O'Brien regularly volunteers with 'Mercy Ships', an international charity which provides free health care by means of a state-of-the-art hospital ship to regions throughout the world with limited or non-existent access to medical facilities and personnel. Dr.O'Brien's account of the life-transforming interventions undertaken by these dedicated volunteers was extremely moving. Rotarians were both humbled and inspired by the outstanding work undertaken by this excellent charity. A cheque for 1500 was presented to Dr. O'Brien by Mr. Peter Jack.
