Do you or someone in your family have an old stamp collection that you no longer want? If YES then keep reading.
Donate your old stamp collection to the Rotary Club of Essendon  and we will sell them to raise funds for one of our very important projects in the Mukuru Slums in Nairobi, Kenya. 
One of the biggest and poorest slum areas in Kenya is where the Ruben Centre Health Centre operates to provide health care to some of the most needy people in the planet. To ensure no toxic waste is adding to the very polluted environment there we are going to supply a speciality medical waste incinerator. We are also donating a dental chair to assist in providing dental care to the children and adults in the area. This care will greatly improve the lives of those people.
So do a hunt in your cupboards and dig out those old collections which are gathering dust and donate them to us.
The result? You will have a tidier house and you'll be caring for some of the most disadvantaged people on the planet. They and we thank you
We wish to thank the Rotary Foundation - Rotary District 9800 who provided a magnificent $7000 grant for this partnership of the Rotary Club of Essendon and the Rotary Club of Utawala IF Kenya.

The Rotary club of Essendon in partnership with The Rotary Club of Utawala Kenya, were successful in receiving a District International Grant to support Ruben Centre Clinic, Kenya.  The clubs contribution is $14,000 and The Rotary Foundation $7,000.
The Rotary Club of Essendon had committed to raise $21,000 to fund a medical incinerator and dental chair for use at the Ruben Centre in Kenya. There is a dire need for the safe disposal of medical waste and the provision of dental services at the Ruben Clinic so we will partner with them.
Ruben Centre is in Mukuru, one of the largest slums in Nairobi, and strive to provide educational, health, and community development programs to the residents of this community. Their efforts are geared towards helping individuals and families living in poverty to improve their quality of life. They believe that through education, healthcare, and community engagement, they can create a brighter future for the Mukuru community.
Project Rainbow is a joint project of the Rotary Clubs of Essendon and the Rotary Club of Leeton Central  with Baha Tuluyan in the Philippines and generously funded with $50,000 from the Rotary Club of Balwyn's Centennial Grant. Further funds have been contributed from the Direct Aid Programme of the Australian Embassy in the Philippines.
Baha Tuluyan is a DSWD-accredited NGO with 35 years of working with Philippino children.
