Birthing Kit Project for Ingin, Komea and surrounding villages in the Southern Highlands of Papua New Guinea (PNG). Through the assistance of Rotary Australia World Community Service (RAWCS) the Rotary Club is to provide an initial supply of 200 sterile, hygienic birthing kits from Birthing Kit Foundation at a cost of $1,000 to provide a cleaner, safer birthing experience for village women who would most likely find a secluded spot on the ground in the bush. There, with the aid of an experienced village woman, the baby is born. Given these non-sterile and unhygienic conditions, the mortality rate for newborn babies is unacceptably high. It is not unusual for the mother to also lose her life due to avoidable complications. Hospital births are rarely available to remote village women and birthing kits are a far safer and better alternative to the traditional birthing methods.

Mt Martha Rotary donates $1000 to flood appeal.
 
We need your help! 
 
Rotary Clubs throughout Australia in association with Rotary Australia World Community Service (RAWCS) are responding to the unfolding, escalating flood crisis by donating to the RAWCS National Flood Appeal. Rotary Australia Benevolent Society (RABS) projects have been set up specifically to each flood affected area (these areas could grow as flood waters move downstream).
 
Funds raised to date have been directed through local Rotary Clubs to providing $500 Rotary Vouchers to those whose homes are uninhabitable and providing temporary accommodation. Support is also provided to Rotary Clubs ‘on the ground’ for their projects for their communities. 
 
To provide the full benefit to these floods affected communities, RAWCS is seeking financial donations from Rotary Districts, Clubs, individuals, businesses and public to support these projects using the RAWCS website project search and donate directly to the individual project using the on-line donation link. Donations are tax deductible.  Donate to https://rawcs.org.au/disasters/
 
"Repairing Bodies and Rebuilding Lives"
Interplast sends teams of volunteer plastic and reconstructive surgeon, anesthetists, nurses and allied health professions to provide life-changing surgery and medical training to 17 countries across the Asia Pacific Region
Mount Martha Rotary has contributed $5,000. In association with other Rotary Clubs on the Mornington Peninsula, the goal figure of $60,000 is required for a forthcoming round of surgical appointments in 2023. The club recognises the outstanding service that the Interplast Surgeons, Nurses and Support staff have provided to less privileged mainly Pacific Island communities over the years.
 
 
The Rotary Club’s ongoing support of Fusion, Mount Martha has seen the commencement of the renovation and fit out of a bedroom. Painting inside the room has been completed and new carpet, curtains, and furniture replaced and updated. The room will be used for youth counsellor accommodation.
Located in the former Balcombe army barracks in Mount Martha, Fusion’s Housing Support Program provides accommodation and support for young people experiencing homelessness between the ages fifteen and twenty-one.
 
We at Rotary Club of Mount Martha are excited to be working with the 7 other Mornington Peninsula Rotary clubs and the Mornington Peninsula Shire to support the development of the Peninsula Trail by providing community facilities as part of their celebration of Rotary’s Centenary in Australia. The recent installation of new seats on the Harrap Creek Trail just inside the Briars entrance.

Sigiri is a village of about 1,500 people at stands 45 minutes’ drive from Mt Hagen, PNG. The village has no running water, and the women and children must walk over one kilometre and return with water in buckets, there are several structures in the village with metal roofs but no guttering or means to capture water. The project was initiated through Rotary Australia World Community Service to assist with funding of the project. Funds were received from Rotary Club of Mount Martha, Rotary Club of Warrnambool, Dragon Boats Australia, and individual donations.
 
Rotary members share a unique passion for taking action to improve their communities and the world.
