The Rose Hotel.

THEY’VE had an 80s/90s disco night, a memorable Lip Sync event and now they’re going to rock the Rose on the bank holiday weekend.

The staff at Bon Secours Hospital in Tralee are holding the ‘Rose Rocks For Sudan’ night on Sunday, October 29 at The Rose Hotel.

It’s all part of their efforts to fundraise for a group of over 30 volunteers from the hospital including  doctors, nurses, technicians, physios , radiographers and administrative staff  who are travelling to Ezeidab and Al Damer in Northern Sudan to bring their skills, vital medical equipment and supplies to people of this region.

Guests will be treated to a champagne reception at 6.30pm, followed by a delicious three course meal, music by Truly Diverse and DJ afterwards. There will be two great door prizes and many more spot prizes on the night.

Tickets cost €50 and can be bought from Bon Secours Hospital Tralee reception.

While in Sudan, the group of six doctors including two Cardiologists and an Orthopaedic surgeon will hold clinics and perform procedures for people who do not have access to/ could never afford them, their administrative staff will pay a visit to the local schools, and equip  them with the basic equipment needed to help ensure they sustain standards of basic education long after hospital staff return home to Ireland.

    Is this fund raising for the Muslim majority population of 97% in North Sudan which are imposing Sharia Islamic law where stoning remains a judicial punishment. Between 2009 and 2012, several women were sentenced to death by stoning and crucifixion is a legal punishment too. In 2002, 88 people were sentenced to death for crimes relating to murder, armed robbery, and participating in ethnic clashes, Amnesty International wrote that they could be executed by either hanging or crucifixion.

    No fund rising for the newest nation in the world, the Christian majority South Sudan who had to split their country in two to escape Islam!
