Ill. Rotarians donate scanners to Tanzanian hospital

By staff writers

May 3, 2018 -- The Rotary Club of Park Ridge, IL, is donating new diagnostic imaging equipment to Children's Hospital Zinga in Tanzania.

The digital x-ray, digital dental x-ray, and ultrasound equipment will be used to help physicians reduce the country's infant mortality rate, which is one of the highest in Africa. The goal is to provide diagnostic imaging to improve healthcare for mothers and children in pre- and postnatal periods, the club said.

The Illinois Rotarians generated $100,000 in total funds from 13 Rotary Clubs in Illinois, Kansas, and California; the First United Methodist Church and St. Paul of the Cross Catholic Church in Park Ridge; and an anonymous donor.
