Rotary Club thanks Newsday for helping Shannen

Thursday, April 13 2017

THE Rotary Club of Chaguanas has thanked Newsday for highlighting the plight of three-year-old Shannen Luke who needed to raise $250,000 for bone transplant surgery.

In a statement sent to the media yesterday, the club said it was inspiring that the paper pushed crime stories aside and published the article written by Darcel Choy and Janelle De Souza.

“In our minds, it brought the plight of our sick and disabled children in society to the nation’s front. (This allowed) decision makers to place the highest priority to decisions taken regarding the health and well-being of our children, all driven through care and love for each other.” The organisation said Rotarians in various clubs, members of the public, employees of organisations and companies across the country responded to the call when the story was published.

Contributions made through Republic Bank Limited, as well as funds raised elsewhere have totalled $190,490.15 to date.

“President Michael Ibrahim anticipates that by April 20, the date scheduled for handing over to Shannen’s family, our financial goal of $250,000 will be achieved.

“As a result, we are asking those who wish to contribute to this worthy cause to donate a minimum of $20.”
