  3. ROMP is a major multi club Rotary effort led by RC Camberwell. The ROMP multi-year project builds on 20+ years of engagement with Myeloma Australia. Currently patients rely on specialist nurses visiting them to answer questions and provide both emotional and physical support. Remoteness and the limited number of specialist nurses means large travel times with patients either waiting or missing out. Additionally, many patients feel sensitive about their condition and may not seek support.
    To provide remote contact with specialist Myleoma nurses through the use of ZOOM technology. The immediate aim is to have ZOOM technology installed in rural cancer centres to enable the specialist nurse to contact multiple patients as a conference call in the cancer centre conference room. This would occur on a regular (Monthly?) basis with individual follow ups. The ultimate aim is to have the patients 'tune in' to a ZOOM conference from their own home.

  4. The playground at beautiful Yarra Bank Reserve Hawthorn is aging and in consequence, undertilised. The site has great potential for family entertainment and has historical significance. It is the site of two trees sacred to the local indigenous community and was the site of the original Glen's Ferrry, which ferried passengers across the river between Richmond and Hawthorn.
    Four Rotary clubs have combined with the City of Boroondara to build an all-abilities playground at Yarra Bank Reserve, which will include a major novelty Rotary themed central attraction, to make the park a destination playground. Work will commence in April 2020 and the park will be completed in the first quarter of 2021

  5. Enter Car #1951 in the Variety Childrens Bash. The Goal: 1. Have 100 Rotary Clubs across Australia sponsor a Rotary logo with RC names and Charter year, so the vehicle is completely covered with a target of 100 Rotary wheels, to celebrate 100 years of Rotary in Australia. 2. Raise funds for Variety Childrens Foundation to cover the required vehicle entry contribution of $8,500. The Aim: Create attention, promote awareness of Rotary and attract potential new members into Rotary.
    A Caboolture Rotarian has purchased the vehicle (as the owner, insurer and patron - for expenses incurred) and is project leader to manage the build and upgrade of it to Bash standard and then attract sponsors, towards both the vehicle costs and for the Bash contribution.

  7. Challenge is for Rotarians to understand and acknowledge that family violence and elder abuse is occurring daily across all neighbourhoods and country. For Rotarians to take some responsibility and become informed and able to identify this abuse and know how to refer and get support for the abused.
    Rotary Safe Families Program includes two films: Family Violence, Impact on Children, and Elder Abuse. If every Rotarian via their club meeting or privately, viewed these films containing powerful messages on identifying, being informed and how to find appropriate referral for a victim, they would assist in PREVENTION of abuse. Films, Manual and Toolkit supported by Police, Support Organisations, and Government. Let's take some responsibility and be informed how to make a difference.

    To establish scholarships for professionals who work with at-risk young people. Suitable candidates are awarded one-year or two year funding to complete a Certificate or Graduate Diploma in Adolescent Health at the University of Melbourne. Current research suggests there is a huge need to ensure professionals are equipped to deal with contemporary complexities of adolescence. The Covid-19 pandemic will only exacerbate the mental health issues that our young people experience.
