Tuesday’s meeting was a lively function. Apologies were from Lawrence Hay, Sue Haththotuwa, Alan Hall and Geoff Gibbs.

Visitor, Samuel Bockarie, from the Madiba Project also attende

International Director acknowledged that Dr Rinna Ly had returned from a visit to his project in Cambodia and asked him to report on it later in the evening.

Ted Mlynarz advised that a previous visitor, Ruby Sharma, would be attending the 13 February meeting as a Guest Speaker – the presentation will be related to Travel and Technology and should be of interest to partners, family and friends.

President John presented Sam with a donation cheque for the Madiba Project and invited Sam to give the Club an update on Madiba’s current activities.

Sam said that the Project was currently centred on poor areas of Sierra Leone. A library that had been donated has been packed and dispatched. Sam thanked the Club for its donation.

Dr Rinna Ly expressed his concern that local media was promoting Cambodia as a dangerous place.

He was happy to report that that was not his experience of 15 days working on his project. He was able to move freely without any trouble. On this visit the project team delivered 8 bicycles and 3 tonnes of rice as well as some medical supplies.

 

Rinna also attended a university graduation ceremony. He caught up with the Vice-Chancellor of the Battambang University and was invited to take on the role as Advisor to the university’s Director.

Rinna also foreshadowed doing a presentation to the Club on a new project to fund a medical centre in a remote village.
