News-Baniyala-Rails

Baniyala RailsA dinner party conversation in Sydney lead to the Rotary Club of Sydney Cove offering their volunteer services to the MJD Foundation to build some urgently needed rails for an MJD sufferer in Baniyala.

Whilst Joyce (pictured left) is still strong, she was having trouble with the stairs in her house.  The Rotary Club of Sydney Cove have a strong alignment with Baniyala (on the mainland in North East Arnhem Land in the NT), and leapt to action, organising for their volunteer team to also help Joyce out in May 2010.

The rails were built by the Rotary of Sydney Cove team using scrap metal from an awning destroyed by Cyclone Paul in March 2010.
