PP Wes
PP Wes appraised Rotarians of his recent trip to Singapore where he had the opportunity to meet with TRF regional representative Hazel and discuss our GG application

Wes also met with a member of the RC Singapore who runs a club supported program there for the provision of prosthetic limbs. They have established an action centre in Jakarta for the supply of prosthetic limbs for the less privileged for a cost of around USD 100.00 and have thus far provided around 10,000 prosthetics. He thought there may be an opportunity for cooperation with Puspadi.

The steering committee is comprised go four District Governors, past and present, plus club presidents. Edward will attend on behalf of RCBND.

The CSC and Board recommended and approved a provisional contribution of IDR 5,000,000 plus any individual donations raised from our club members. Edward was authorised to advise the meeting of the RCBND initial provisional commitment but depending on the discussion and outcomes of the meeting regarding the application of total funds committed.

Raffle tickets of IDR 400,000 were sold and PP Karl was the winner. The prize was a nice something or other. Karl and other past winners owing prizes are reminded not to forget to make their contributions at forthcoming meetings.
