The Rotary Club of Liverpool West was proud to support Cambodia Vision’s Annual trip to provide Ophthalmic, Optometric, Audiology and General Medical Services to the poor and needy of Cambodia. This year the trip was from 19 September to 29 September 2018 and was based at the Svay Rieng Provincial Referral Hospital in Cambodia. A team of 84, Doctors, Ophthalmologists, GP’s, Nurses, Volunteers and included from La Trobe University, 6 final year students in Clinical Audiology with their supervising Professor, all travelled at their own expense. Our President, Jim Rudling was one of the supporting volunteers. There were nearly 4000 patients seen during the fortnight resulting in 444 Surgeries, 3,100 General Medical Consultations and 800 Hearing Consultations. The team of Optometrists supplied 350 prescription eyeglasses, 1000 standard reading glasses and 3,500 Sunglasses.
 Over 100 Volunteers including Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Liverpool West (RCLW), Joe Cauchi, Charles Hili, Jim Leahy,  Ted Mlynarz. and two  from the RCLW Satellite Club, Dr William Trinh and Dr Hien Tran  were part of the AUSTRALIAN HEALTH HUMANITARIAN AID (AHHA) Field Trip 2018
RAWCS Project No 14/2008-09
During the 10th and 11th August 2018 a team of over 100 volunteers from ophthalmological, nursing, optometry, medical, dental, pharmaceutical, logistics, administrative and support backgrounds departed Australian shores to participate in the AHHA 2018 Field Trip to Cambodia over a time frame from 11th Aug to 24 Aug 2018.
The purpose of the field trip was to provide free Cataract surgery, Medical and Dental services to poor and needy people from rural areas of Cambodia who otherwise would not have access to these medical and dental services.
Humanitarian activities were also conducted which resulted in the distribution of 2000 water filters to remote and isolated villages and communities where clean water is not available and had been affected by seasonal monsoon rains and flooding. Food parcels and financial assistance were also provided.
Over a period of six (6) days the following results were achieved:
Eye Team
910 patients screened, 498 eye surgeries performed.
Dental Team
756 patients (mainly special needs and orphaned children) screened, 2008 dental procedures provided.

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.
