Bill Gray welcome his friend Kim Baxter, a retired Optometrist and member of the Rotary Club of North Platte, Nebraska. Kim spoke to us from Colorado this morning about the Neonatal and Maternity Care Centre in Kakamega County, Western Kenya. The Craig Memorial Clinic is named for Kim's late son Craig, who tragically died in an accident several years ago. With the help of C-K Rotary, the Montreal Lakeshore Rotary Club, the Kakamega Rotary Club, District 7040, and many others, this clinic in rural Kenya is close to fully funded. Equipment has been provided for the maternity wing of the hospital, as well as training for staff. There was also an unexpected benefit - when County politicians toured the new clinic, they quickly secured funds for the revitalization of the rest of the hospital! Rotary again was the catalyst, and our club helped out Kim, a man obviously passionate about helping others.
