The Rotary Club of Princes Town in its continued efforts to Make a Difference as per the Rotary International Theme for 2017-2018 conducted a medical clinic at Vickar’s Ranch in Barrackpore on Sunday July 23rd, 2017 to assist those affected in the aftermath of Tropical Storm Brett. This area was targeted because of the widespread flooding coupled with the closure of the Health Center in Rochard Douglas Road.
Councillors for the area Mr. Raffi Mohammed and Mr. Joseph Lorent from the Princes Town Regional Corporation assisted in mobilizing the residents ensuring that those in need of medical care were present and attended to by the Doctors on site. 
There were sixty seven patients who were assessed.  Other services provided included blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol checks as well as legal advice by the club’s in-house lawyer, Ms Debbie Roopchand. Family planning advisory services was also provided by Nurse Lenore Mitchell. The club’s in-house pharmacist, Ravi Ramanand and his assistant Mickael assisted with the distribution of medical aid and personal hygiene hampers to the needy residents.
