Rotary Club of Illorin, Nigeria visits Hollister

Rotary Club of Illorin, Nigeria visits Area 6 Clubs including Hollister Rotary

On April 28, the Rotary Club of Hollister had the honor of hosting seven members from our International Service Partner Club of Illorin, Nigeria. In 2014, Area 6 clubs (which include Hollister, San Juan Bautista, Gilroy, Gilroy Sunrise, Morgan Hill and Almaden Valley) funded and supplied several portable ultrasound machines and heart monitors, in a maternal wing of the Egbe Hospital, in a remote part of Nigeria.  

This project has resulted in prenatal healthcare and saved lives in an area that did not have access to this kind of care anywhere nearby prior to this partnership.  Our Nigerian friends came to express their gratitude and also to attend the Rotary District Conference held that weekend in San Ramon.
The Illorin Rotarians started their day by attending the Rotary Club of San Juan Bautista’s weekly breakfast meeting, followed by a tour of the San Juan Mission. Then the Illorin Rotarians headed to Hollister, where they were given a tour of Chamberlain's Children Center and Keith Thompson Non Public School.  Several Hollister Rotarians joined the group for a wonderful lunch at Ridgemark Golf & Country Club. 

After lunch, the Illorin group completed their day in Hollister with a guided tour of Hazel Hawkins Memorial Hospital.
