Horn of Africa Project

The containers of medical equipment have arrived in Somali State of Ethiopia.
An official reception held to receive the equipment was attended by the Mayor, Vice-Minister Health, Vice-Minister of Education and local elders. The press attended the ceremony, resulting in radio and television coverage.
 
The equipment has been received with much appreciation.
 
Included in the donations were a number of motorised scooters. One has been provided to a man whose means of getting around had been walking on his hands. His life has been transformed by the scooter. He said “I have gone from being dead to alive”.
 
The donations of dialysis machines has allowed 3 public dialysis services to be established. Previously only private hospitals were offering dialysis.
These are great outcomes from our project.
Thank you so much for your support which has helped transform lives.

Footscray Art Prize Exhibition and Auction Dinner

The Rotary Club of Footscray fundraising dinner for youth projects – held in conjunction with the 2021 Footscray Art Prize was organised on the 8th May 2021. The event began with a special viewing of the Footscray Art Prize exhibition at the Footscray Community Arts Centre followed by dinner and an auction at the Australian Croatian Club.

We raised just over $3000 from the dinner, this includes tickets sales and silent auctions.

Suzanne would like to applaud the generosity of the club members who attended and their guests, for donating goods, time and their skills to make it a very enjoyable evening.

For those who have been unable to visit the Footscray Art Prize in person, here is a link to the catalogue and a virtual tour of the main prize exhibition at the Footscray Community Art Centre.

The catalogue includes the Young Artists entries, the prizes sponsored by our club. 

Club Meetings

The Club has been consistent in organising meeting throughout this two-month period. In April, a zoom meeting in the first week was followed by a dinner meeting at The Plough Hotel later in the month. The Footscray Rotary Board Meeting was organised on the 13th May.

Tommy Quick is the guest speaker for tonight’s zoom meeting. Tommy Quick is a young 28-year-old stroke impacted man, who is riding a recumbent bike 9000 across Australia and up the East coast with the goal to raise $1m for stroke research.  He only has 62 days until he starts in WA and heads to Melbourne. 

Looking forward to meeting Tommy and listening to his story.
