Rotary International, on the other hand, is an international service organization whose stated purpose is to bring together business and professional leaders to provide humanitarian services and to advance goodwill and peace around the world.
The MOU provides the framework to foster collaboration and participation of both organizations for the under-privileged in society to have access to better healthcare and for this reason the agreement facilitates the establishment of channels of communication that permit the creation and exchange of information to develop proposals for sourcing and procuring hospital equipment and humanitarian aids to be distributed in deprived areas of Ghana.
Mr. Eric Adu Gyamfi, President of Rotary Club of Sunyani East, a member of Rotary International, was excited about the partnership which ensures that deprived hospitals and health Centers are adequately equipped with medical equipment to ensure quality health care delivery.
