    Very happy to know of the team 0f D-3140 Dr Arun Choudhary, Dr Ravishankar who happens to be from D-3180, both Rotarians, and two non-Rotarian Optho-surgeons Dr Jenin Patel and Dr neerav working on the Mercy ship in Guinea, West Africa, as VTT of eye surgeons under The Rotary Foundation program. I got to know about this team working in Africa very recently. This is a great service treating the humanity in need and also training the local medical people to sustain the program. My most sincere compliments to the doctors for their dedication. They make Rotary proud and truely translate the ideals of Service Above Self into reality.
