Dental equipment worth $100,000 donated to Samoa by member John Green.
In past years, our own dental equipment engineer John Green has donated various pieces of equipment to improve dental services in the island of Savaii, Samoa.  John has also accompanied equipment to guide installations.  
However with the COVID-19 travel restrictions, John has worked hard to donate even more equipment and attract talented Rotary volunteers to build some special devices to his design.  Some of it is refurbished pre-loved items stripped down for modification necessary for their style of mobility, such as the two portable carts shown, together with hand tools and consumables.
This was a major undertaking and several club members provided some assistance in assembly, testing, and packing. Logistics was entrusted to member Bob O'Shea who arranged the international shipment.
Rotary club of Apia Samoa will assist with the inbound Customs clearance and transportation to the Dental Services Centre on the island of Savaii.  The Dental Service will be able to travel around the island to provide services, especially for children, in remote locations all over Savaii.
