Rotary is dedicated to six areas of focus to build international relationships, improve lives, and create a better world to support our peace efforts and end polio forever.

A Rotary Tasmania Callout

A Rotary Australia Benevolent Society (Managed by the Rotary Australia World Community Service) has Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) registration and has been listed as a Charitable Fund so we can accept tax deductible donations from individuals or organisations.


District 9830 Tasmania is raising funds that are required to build a pool and spa for the Baric family whose two sons (9 and 12 years old) have Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy. There is no cure for DMD and the disease is progressive and is 100% fatal due to muscle wasting. Average life expectancy is mid 20's. Both siblings also have autism. Physiotherapy (especially aquatic) is central to the boys quality of life but spa and pool facilities in Hobart are in high demand and consequently, access is very limited. { International guidelines for the multidisciplinary management of people with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) recommend regular physical therapy, including stretching and positioning regimens 4–6 days/week to maintain joint ranges, and submaximum aerobic exercise/activity to avoid disuse atrophy. Exercises in water are highly recommended.] Neither parent is able to work as both of them are the boy's full-time carers. They receive a carers pension but this can obviously only fund basic living costs. Other financial resources including superannuation have already been exhausted.

In summary, if you are looking to support a community project before end of this Rotary year, and you still have funds available, please contribute to this worthy project to help towards the purchase of a hydrotherapy pool for two young boys-here . As a RAWCS/RACG project any personal donations attract Deductible Gift Recipient status and all donations are being matched $1 for $1 from the Dick Smith contribution to RACGs. So far, clubs and others have raised about 50% of the target of $15,000.

 

RAWCS has established an appeal which commenced accepting donations from 1 October 2018 on the RAWCS website home page. These funds will go directly to the eight Rotary District drought relief project registered with RAWCS. These projects cover the whole of the drought declared area west of the Great Dividing Range, from Far North Queensland to Victoria. Two of the Rotary District drought projects have been operating since 2014 in Central Queensland and Southern Queensland. The six new drought projects have been modeled on the success of these two projects. The emphasis is on mental health, particularly the factors associated with the high suicide rate in drought impacted areas. “Wellbeing rather than Welfare” is the driver in these eight Rotary projects, by direct contact and financial support, and involvement together through a range of community activities of those affected.

Tasmania Rotary Clubs are asked to consider donating to the new RAWCS appeal, or direct to one of the eight RAWCS drought projects. Full details are available on RAWCS homepage.

BARRY RASSIN
2018-19 President
Rotary International

"As Paul Harris put it, “Rotary is a microcosm of a world at peace, a model which nations will do well
to follow.” To me, Rotary is not only a model but an inspiration. It shows us what is possible, inspires us
to reach for it, and gives us a path to act — and to Be the Inspiration to our world."
