Club News

MEET NATALIA

Natalia is from West Papua,
Indonesia. She is 25 years old and lives with her family near the township of Jayapura. She has lived with the condition known as Neurofibromatosis since the age of two.  We understand there was an attempt to kill her when she was very young because of her appearance, and as a result of this attempt, she has been left with a terrible leg deformity.
 
Natalia's plight has inspired Rotarians in Australia and Overseas, including Rotary Oceania Medical Aid for Children (ROMAC), which will then help her to lead a more normal life.
In June 2015 International Service Director Joe Cauchi and Youth Service Director John Pillay visited Fiji to look for suitable projects - two possibilities were found:-
  • Varavu Settlement – Ba, Fiji
This is a village of 75 people (Sugar Farmers and their families who were displaced from their farms when the 99 years leases were not renewed by the Fijian Land Owners) the village had a bore drilled and a 3.5hp pump provided by Yaadein Vision and while the villagers had access to clean water it was not piped to or near the homes in the village. Our involvement would be to purchase the piping (elbow joints, taps etc.) and the villagers will install assisted by Members of our Club. The electrical and plumbing supplies to be purchased in Australia and shipped to Fiji because the quality is better than what is available locally...
 
  • Sigatoka Village, Fiji
This project is different in that a bore is yet to be drilled, the local people are confident that there is water is the area, the cost of this is being met by the people of the village. If the well is successful we would provide the piping and hardware needed to take the water to the homes.
