Koshika Project in India

 

Our Club together with Rotary Club of Delhi Heritage obtained a District Grant to complete 400 cataract eye surgeries to date.

  • Wyndham Rotary together with private donations raised $5,000.00
  • Rotary Club of Delhi Heritage raised $5,000.00
  • District Grant contributed $2,500.00

The second phase will perform 250 cataract eye surgeries and was to commence in March 2021 but has been halted due to COVID outbreak in India.

Congratulations to Rakesh and Julie for their persistence in completing the Grant process.

 
   
Music Of The Night
Wyndham Rotary has a focus on supporting local organisations that help the victims of Family Violence. A fabulous night of music, great food and friendship helped raise over $2000. Our motto is "What is raised local stays local". Top class world renowned artists brought a taste of Opera to Wyndham and did so because they too care about families in need.
We plan to offer you this experience again in 2022.
Club News
One down, three to go.
Phil, Len, Alistair, Alex and myself worked well as a team to dismantle the Central Park Playground to make way for a new one to be installed. This will be the first of four that will be recycled and sent to needy communities overseas.
Two more playgrounds will be dismantled next Tuesday (June 22) and anyone who is available will be welcomed to help out. If you are available or would like to help please contact me (Eddie Szatkowski) for details.
 
You will need to bring a yellow safety vest, gloves and wear suitable clothing. Everything else needed will be supplied.
 
Below are photos showing the results of our first working bee thanks to Len, Alistair, Alex and Phil.
 
Getting into the "Swing" of things.
