Rotary Club of Dar es Salaam Oyster Bay Medical Camps

Rotary club of Dar es Salaam regularly holds medical camps in underserved communities providing various interventions. This year in collaboration with other local clubs (Kilimanjaro, Bahari, Dar es Salaam, and Ukonga), conducted a successful Medical Camp during the Ukonga Rotary Family Health Day. This event showcased the power of unity and collaboration in our mission to improve the well-being of the local community.

  • The camp positively affected the lives of over 4000 beneficiaries.
  • More than 50 Rotarians actively participated, with 32 from our own club.
  • Approximately 20 members from other clubs supported the event.
  • Over 300 enthusiastic Rotaractors from various institutions (Kairiuki, Muhimbili, KIUT, Alpha, Muhimbili, and Kwanza) demonstrated their commitment to service.
  • More than 100 skilled medical personnel, including doctors, specialists, lab technicians, and immunization staff, provided their expertise and care.
  • Enhanced health awareness and education in the community.
  • Strengthened connections with local authorities and partner clubs
Working together for a good cause
As an organization that primarily draws from the volunteering commitment of its members, we sometimes face restrictions in terms of time and financial resources. Hence we are very proud and thankful that we were able to cooperate with many supporters of our cause in the past and we appreciate each one.
Our affiliated Rotaract Clubs regularly support our camps with manpower and – more importantly – with medical services and education. We are proud that many other NGOs, national and local companies such as Pepsi, Sayona, Whitedent and Securex as well as many individuals support our cause. We are more than thankful for their dedication and assistance.
With doing all this we, however, realize, that the nub of the matter is not the Medical Camp itself, but in what happens afterwards. We therefore are working on and discussing ways of implementing more sustainable solutions in the future, together with the respective target communities and our partners.
If you would like to get involved with the Medical Camps or receive more information about it, please contact us via or visit us at one of our meetings.
