Rotary Clubs help Afghanistan clinic

YORKTOWN —  AWAKEN (Afghan Women’s And Kids’ Education & Necessities), Inc, has received a $5,000 Rotary District Grant to purchase medical equipment for its Behsood Health Clinic in the Nangarhar Province of Afghanistan.

The grant awarded $2,500 from the District, matched by $2,500 from the Muncie Rotary Club and the Muncie Sunrise Rotary Club.

AWAKEN, Inc., based in Yorktown, funds projects and services carried out by its sister organization, AWAKEN Afghanistan, which is located in Jalalabad, Afghanistan. AWAKEN’s Behsood Health Clinic opened in 2008 and now treats nearly 20,000 patients annually in a rural area that has no other healthcare facilities.

The Rotary District Grant has been used to purchase more than a dozen pieces of equipment that are vital to patient care, including a microscope, oxygen condenser, scales, surgery equipment, a patient bed and benches for patients waiting to be seen by one of the clinic’s two doctors.

The funding was also used to purchase a motorcycle and loudspeaker to improve the effectiveness of AWAKEN’s twice-a-week vaccination program in surrounding villages. The program includes polio vaccinations and coincides with Rotary’s commitment to eradicating polio worldwide.

Additionally, a new generator, which provides the clinic’s electricity, was purchased with the grant.
