Projects in Nepal

Rotary Tasmania, District 9830,   recently signed a District Relationship Agreement between our District and District 3292 in Nepal.   A closer relationship has resulted and a number of joint projects between our two Districts are being undertaken.

‘Gift of Sight’ Eye Project, Nepal

“They came most partially blind, some totally blind; but with hardly an exception they departed with vision restored.”

Eye camp Nepal

We are making a difference

This project is conducted by the Rotary Club of Hetauda in November and February and Rotary Tasmania has welcomed the opportunity to provide funding.  Those Rotarians able to attend a camp will not forget the look of amazement and joy on the face of a blind person able to see again.

 Rotary Response to Disasters

Rotary International in Australia sees it’s major role in disasters as a “second line ” approach. Rotary will normally leave first response to the emergency authorities.

Our role is seen to be in the recovery process. With Rotary Clubs spread throughout most areas that experience disasters we are well equipped to support recovery initiatives after the immediate disaster has passed.

However there are two Rotary endorsed organisations that do support immediate emergency relief world wide – DISASTER AID AUSTRALIA and SHELTERBOX AUSTRALIA         More details here.
