Toolooa Interactors Provide "Helping Hands"

Toolooa Interactors Provide “Helping Hands”
Every 5 days someone has a limb destroyed by a land mine. Saturday 11th June saw Toolooa Interact fund and assemble 2 prostatic hands. Collectively with Rotaract and other Gladstone Region Rotary Clubs a total of 21 hands were constructed to send overseas to Cambodia where they will be fitted to land mine victims. On the morning there was participation from 11 Toolooa Interact students who enthusiastically assisted in the construction of the hand as well as the design of the case.
The morning started off with a video that showed the different types of land mines and how they can be disarmed. We then started assembling the prostatic hands in groups of two and afterwards got the chance to draw and colour the case in which the hand is placed inside. Within these cases were a card in which individuals were able to write a message to the receiver and say who the hand was from. As you can see from the photos it was loads of fun, interesting as well as a challenging task to be involved in.
