At our last speaker meeting, Matthew Proctor gave us a good insight into the plight of the Kyebe Maternity Clinic in Uganda. Kyebe Maternity Clinic is located in the Kyebe Sub-County, Kyotera District, Uganda.  The facility was established in the 1950’s to meet the medical needs of the local community.

The Rotary Club of Gaba, Uganda, have produced an introductory video for this project.

Matthew is seeking assistance and funding to bring the clinic up to a decent standard that can assist not just with regards to woman giving birth but for all other woman's health.

Let’s Lift the Lid on Mental Health with Australian Rotary Health

October is Mental Health month and World Mental Health Day, October 10th, is approaching fast.
Each year, Rotarians and friends make an amazing contribution to raising funds for much needed mental health research through Australian Rotary Health (ARH). From 2022, the focus is on improving the mental health of children 0-12 years old. 
Well Spring has certainly settled in and all the flowers are blooming and the bees are buzzing. The year 2022 is fast approaching to a close with only 3 more months to go. We have had a somewhat busy month in September. Starting off with David Curnow speaking on the “The Psychology of Embezzlement”. The week after that we had a successful and fun filled joint meetings with Rotary Club of Hopper Crossing and APEX at WERN. Our raffle raised $160, and we have jointly agreed to bump that up to $500 to donate to the Olivia Newton John Foundation. The members from Hoppers Crossing gave us a good overview of the projects that they have run over time to raise funds and support the communities here and overseas. Our members too spoke of the projects that we have had and our future plans. Amanda from APEX gave us a good insight into what her club actively involved in, such as Wynspeak, doing and that they will be doing the Christmas Tree sales again this year.
