  • The maternity ward at Diani Dispensary, built with funding from Norwegian and Kenyan Rotarians, offers quality maternal health care to needy women in Ukunda, Kenya.
  • Every year, Eilif Torma, of the Rotary Club of Diani, takes a break from Kenya’s sweltering summer heat and spends four months in his birthplace of Oslo, Norway. But his adopted homeland is never far from his mind.
  • Through his friendships with members of the Rotary Club of Røa, located in a suburb of Oslo, Torma has secured help for several projects in Kenya.
  • Most recently, the Røa club donated NKr 100,195 (US$18,205) to construct a maternity ward at the Diani Dispensary in Ukunda, a project of the Diani Rotary club.
