Meeting 7 September 2021
We had apologies from John Pillay, Rinna Ly and Lou Madormo, we welcomed Honorary Member George Kristen and Guest Speaker Vimla Hayman.

Treasurer advised that the Club had lodged an application for an Empowering and Supporting Local Communities Grant from Multicultural NSW. If successful the funds received from this grant will be used to partner with CORE Community Services to provide around 500 “Stay at Home Kits”, plus New Mother and Sanitizer Kits to people and family in lockdown in the Liverpool, Fairfield, Campbelltown and Camden Local Government Areas. These kits will be similar to those funded in July and will also include where needed a $50 data card to assist with home schooling.

Below is an item posted on Facebook by CORE Community Services mentioning our Club’s assistance.

He also advised that the Liverpool Art Society has cancelled its proposed Art Show for 2021 and will look to hold the event in 2022, we have advised that we would be prepared to jointly sponsor with the Rotary Clubs of Liverpool and Liverpool Greenway a “John Mula Memorial Art Prize” for a local artist at the 2022 event.

President Elect Shiva Nandan advised the current recipient of our Nursing Scholarship Morgan Adams has been approached to speak to the Club at our meeting on 2 November 2020.

President Ted Mlynarz formally welcomed and introduced Vimla Hayman to present on the work of Interplast.



According to the World Health Organisation, out of the millions of surgeries performed worldwide each year, the world’s poor RECEIVE ONLY 3.5%, while the world’s Richest RECEIVE 73.6%. Sadly, two billion people have no access at all to basic surgical care.
Since Interplast began in 1983, as a partnership between Rotary and the Royal Australasian
College of Surgeons, they have been tackling an element of this problem by performing free
operations to patients in the Asia Pacific region who would otherwise not be able to afford or
access them. They continue to build on this life-changing work by increasing our program reach
and continuing to implement our ‘twin-track’ approach. Our focus remains on giving patients
access to life-changing medical procedures whilst also building the capacity of local medical staff
through a range of formal and informal training and mentoring activities.
Meeting 14 September 2021 Official Visit by DG Jeremy Wright
This was a joint meeting with Liverpool and Liverpool Greenway.
President Ted Mlynarz welcomed DG Jeremy, ADG Paula Jesse, ADG John Pillay, PDG Keith Roffey, President June Young and Member of Liverpool Greenways as well as President Grant de Fries and Members of Liverpool Club.
DG Jeremy Wright commenced his address by sharing RI President Shekha Mehta’s Theme for 2021/2
Grow Rotary through Each One, Bring One
Rotary’s Action Plan is the bridge between what we are today and what we want and need to be. It is our plan for fulfilling our vision of a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change. Our members, as people of action, are the key to achieving any of the plan’s four priorities. So, adding members allows us to achieve more. RI President Shekhar Mehta is deeply committed to growing and sustaining Rotary membership. As one of his presidential initiatives, Mehta is asking clubs and districts to:
  1. Get a commitment from each active Rotarian to sponsor one new member by 30 June 2022. The Each One, Bring One initiative will help us stay relevant, attract new members, and engage and retain current members and participants.
  2. Use public events to remind the public that Rotary and Rotaract clubs serve others and create positive change. Members can bring guests to events like Rotary Days of Service or this year’s presidential conferences, where they’ll experience the life-changing impact of Rotary.
  3. Form an effective membership committee to focus on growth, engagement, and making Rotary accessible to more people. The committee should have processes for finding prospective members, introducing them to current members, inviting them to join, and then offering a clear and useful orientation, fun activities, and Rotary opportunities beyond the club.
  4. Diversify Rotary by supporting Rotary’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. By connecting with prospective members and participants from all backgrounds and inviting them to experience Rotary, we’ll gather an abundance of perspectives, skills, and solutions.
He also advised that Rotary now has a new area of Service – The Environment and then went on to discuss with those in attendance what is happening locally during COVID restrictions and the impacts it is having on Clubs and the Community. In summary other matters touched on included:
  • Youth Service
    • RYLA is still scheduled for January 2022
    • MUNA may be virtual in 2022
    • RYPEN is planned for April 2022
  • District has a goal to increase Membership by a net 100 in 2021/2
  • As Liverpool is at the centre of District 9675 more events are planned to be held here when able
  • Information available on the District Website including Grants on offer

.Update of the work being conducted in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) by AHHA and supported by our Club from Member Dr William Trinh OAM and Chair of AHHA

“First, we would like to thank many of you who have made generous donations to our urgent appeal to relieve the suffering of COVID pandemic in HCMC. Your kindness and compassion mean saving lives to many during this crisis.
We would like to update you the COVID situation in HCMC and what we have done with your donation so far.
HCMC has been the epicentre of COVID Delta variant outbreak in Vietnam since April and HCMC has been in complete lockdown since May. HCMC with the dense population of 9 million people now has the highest fatality rate of COVID in the region (4.9% according to WHO). 80% of current COVID deaths in Vietnam occurs in HCMC. Since May, there are more than 11,000 deaths and more than10,000 new cases daily in HCMC. There is no clear sign of improvement as only 8% of population is fully vaccinated, with very limited resources and poor coordination of health care system to cope with inundated COVID patients. It is heartbreaking to all of us to see so many poor are out of work and suffer starvation.  
AHHA has collaborated with Rotary Club of Saigon International to donate 30 oxygen concentrators to several field hospitals in HCMC to manage mild to moderate COVID patients. AHHA in collaboration with Caritas, has already donated 10 tons of rice and 450 food parcels to poor families in District 8 in HCMC. AHHA also in collaboration with Vietnam Oi Co Len charity group, has donated 5000 free meals to frontline works and COVID patients. Due to strict lockdown, the logistics of distributing food relief is very challenging, however AHHA will continue to work with local charity groups to distribute humanitarian aid wherever is possible”
