FUNDRAISING by Rotary Club of Honiara to send babies and young children for life saving surgeries in Australia and New Zealand through their ROMAC (Rotary Oceania Medical Aid for Children) program was boosted with an over $28,000.00 donation.
This was made by Harry Stewart, who won a fundraising drive organised by the Honiara Golf Club on 14 February 2015.
The presentation by Mr Stewart was done after a day of Monthly Medal golf competition at the Golf Club.
Mr Steward said:
“As a father I share the feelings of many parents who look up to Rotary for assistance to cure the illnesses their babies or children have, and illnesses that cannot be cured in Solomon Islands.
“I hope this little donation from my heart will help to save at least a life.”
On hand to accept the generous donation were Rotarian Wayne Morris, ROMAC administrator, and Rotarian Dr Nathan Kere, ROMAC Coordinator.
Rotarian Wayne thanked Mr Steward for the very generous donation that will go a long way enabling Rotary to support at least a baby to have a second chance to live.
Also in the presence of Honiara Golf Club President GV Singh, both Rotarians confirmed that they have always been encouraged by efforts of the club in regularly finding ways to help communities including Rotary with donations.
