The Moat Primary School

The Moat Primary School from Lisnaskea generously donated backpacks for Mary’s Meals which were delivered to Coalisland on Tuesday into the very capable hands of Jackie O’ Neill.

Shipment for Rombo

The Moat Primary School, Lisnaskea also thoughtfully donated shirts, dresses, children’s clothes and most importantly 60 pairs of children’s glasses. They were shipped along with 420 pairs of glasses provided by the fellow Rotarian’s by DHL in Belfast. It should take 6 days for delivery and will be there prior to our trip to Rombo, Kenya. The Training Manuals for Angela McKinney were also shipped and will be a fundamental tool to help train nurses and staff in Kenya.
