DIK

Donation is Kind (DIK) agreed to provide, at short notice, “medical” equipment for treating wildlife injured in the horrendous bushfires in Victoria.   The State Government had announced that many veterinarians were available from the Department of Agriculture to do this work.   DIK was overstocked with suitable equipment, donated from hospitals as past its “best before” date but brand new and intended for shipment to third world countries.   It was re-packaged on the day, mostly by members of the new Rotary Club of Melbourne passport Club in packs specified by a Rotarian veterinarian with good connections to the Department of Agriculture.  The result was two truckloads of such equipment, shipped from DIK on Thursday to the Department of Agriculture, to be distributed to its veterinarians around Victoria.

The sound of gold coins as they rattle in the Rotary volunteer’s tins sets the scene for the Melbourne tradition of looking for treasure in the converted car park on Sundays. The generosity of market fans continues to make a difference to thousands of families and people both locally and internationally. (more…)
