Rotary Tanzania has today signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Comprehensive Community Based Rehabilitation (CCBRT) where by Rotary is pledging funds to support the construction of CCBRT’s new clinic to provide appointment based, private eye, orthopaedic and ear, nose and throat (ENT), physiotherapy as well as imaging services.

Rotary Dar Marathon in Partnership with Bank M will support CCBRT by contributing funds amounting to USD 1.5M over a period of 2017-2019. The grant is in in support of CCBRT’s social enterprise project, which aims to expand revenues to be able to support subsidised care in the Disability Hospital. Funds will be used to complete construction of the Clinic, which will open in February 2018, and support the equipping and outfitting of the facility.

Speaking on this new initiative of Rotarians providing communities with quality heath care facilities, Rotary Dar Marathon Board Chair Sharmila Bhatt said “We are very pleased to support an institution like CCBRT providing high quality care to patients and especially in the area of disability. Part of this investment will be raised locally through Rotary Dar Marathon in partnership with Bank M while other funds will be obtained through our Rotary Foundation.”

Erwin Telemans, CCBRT’s CEO, commented on the new partnership with enthusiasm. “We’re lucky to have Rotary as a partner in this exciting endeavour,” he said. “We hope more partners will see the opportunity in supporting CCBRT’s growth as a social enterprise.”

Rotary always aspires to serve the community by investing in areas where the most good can be achieved and through this project CCBRT will be able to continue offering affordable disability care to more people who cannot afford to pay for services from profits attained through the new private clinic.

The Rotary Dar Marathon Chairperson 2017 Catherinerose Barretto said “On behalf of the presidents of the seven clubs of Rotary in Dar es Salaam which are the organizers of the Rotary Dar Marathon each year, I would like to take this opportunity to share our excitement on this project and we hope all our other supporters individuals and companies alike will continue to support the marathon so that we can achieve this very ambitious and significant goal.”
