June 14th speaker Claire Culley, CEO, Otis Foundation. This charitable organisation provides retreat accommodation at no cost to anyone dealing with the challenges of breast cancer and currently provides properties in every state in Australia. Each stay provides our guest with time out to relax, reconnect and regroup. Friends, family and partners are also welcome.
Our speaker on June 2nd was Doug Hawley, RC Canterbury.
“FORaMeal Project” is an initiative by the RC of Canterbury to help provide emergency relief meals for those impacted by natural disasters. Each year over 150,000 meals are provided free of charge to vulnerable individuals and families across the Asia Pacific region in times of disaster. More recently the club decided to redirect part of the FORaMEAL effort to help the most vulnerable in the Stage 4 COVID-19 restrictions in Melbourne. By August 2021, more than 200,000 meals were delivered through the FORaMEAL COVID response.
