In 2016, the funds will be donated locally and Internationally to third world countries and a portion will be used to support a number of other charities through the year.
The main beneficiaries to receive monies this year are:
ROMAC (Rotary Oceania Medical Aid for Children)
ROMAC is a Rotary project that is assisted by many eminent Australian surgeons who generously respond to requests for assistance. ROMAC has provided over 300 children from 20 countries with urgent medical treatment that has given them new hope. To date, children have been brought from Fiji, Papua New Guinea, Malaysia, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Vietnam, Cambodia, Russia, China, Tonga, Solomon Islands, The Philippines, Pakistan, Iran, Timor-Leste, Vanuatu, Kiribati, Nauru and Zimbabwe.
The children usually come from very remote areas and are brought to Australia as medical treatment is simply not available in their home countries. These are children with herniated brains, deformed limbs, horrific burns, heart conditions and in the case of the Bosun (Siamese) twins, separation as they were joined face to face from the lower chest to the umbilicus.
