This bus is currently travelling through New Zealand, stopping for Rotary promotion opportunities along the way.  You can follow its progress on the District 9940 Facebook page during its travels to Rarotonga.
In 2016 the Rotary Club of Rarotonga identified the need to refurbish 12 village-based health clinics.  They are part of a network of 27 health clinics around the island of Rarotonga.  Over the years the clinics have deteriorated for various reasons, particularly due to the island’s weather conditions.  A call was put out to the Rotary Clubs of New Zealand for help to find a solution and the Mobile Medical Health Unit was born.
The project has taken approximately two years to complete with an overall cost of $180,000.  The unit has many roles, primarily as a mobile health clinic for child and maternal care, capacity to be used as a command centre in an emergency, immunisation and vaccinations, non-communicable diseases awareness programmes, elderly, disability and men’s health care, blood donation collection centre and antenatal checks.  Most Rotary Districts and many Rotary clubs have supported this project.
