We are facilitating ANNUAL Mental Health EXPO’s for the community. Our club is serious about helping both those who are suffering with a mental illness and those who care for those suffering. Our aim is to bring together all those health professionals and services that can help, in the ONE ROOM – so that those searching for answers can find them easily under the one roof. We particularly want to help our youth in Southern Tasmania – so they know how many organisations out there can help them. Please go to UPCOMING EVENTS PAGE to find out more details.
We aim to help as many local people, families and worthy organisations as possible each year. When we identify a need, we work tirelessly until we have successfully completed the project or raised enough funds to help those in need. Each year our lists of accomplishments grow, and the members are proud to see the difference we have made in the local community.
If you want to know more up to date details on the community projects that the club has recently undertaken – please ask the club directors or the current club president.
Some of the worthy Moonah Rotary club projects:
** Australian Rotary Health – look at separate web page on the Tasmanian Rotary website for more details on this Rotary program. We donate a sizable amount to this every year, and request that the money goes into research areas that will help Australian’s, but in particular we request that the funds go into Mental Health Research GRANTS.
** BOWELSCAN (A low cost – statewide Rotary health initiative to detect the early signs of Bowel Cancer for the over 40’s age group in our community.
** Live Free Tassie (A long term live in – youth program to help addicted youth that want to beat their addictions.) We provided two separate donations to this wonderful organisation. The second and bigger of the two donations was partly supported financially by a Rotary district matching grant. We gave nearly $2,ooo to enable the supply of new GYM EQUIPMENT to re-equip the team after a devastating fire destroyed their previous gym & all their equipment on the property.
