Scams, hacking and cyberthreats

This week we had our member Carol provide us with some of the features of Internet scams which many of us have experienced and which could be as simple as somebody taking money from your account who does not have authority to do so. Carol took us through the website www.scamwatch.gov.au.

Supporting Backpacks 4 VIC Kids

Since hearing CEO Sally Beard speak at a Club meeting in 2018, we have been able to support Backpacks 4 VIC Kids in a number of ways. For in-stance, President Marg has made frequent trips to their premises in Cranbourne to ferry items donated by the ladies at Peppertree Hill Retirement Village. The result of our recent ‘Buy A Bear Project’ has enabled us to donate close to $600 to Backpacks, plus two dozen bears, bunnies or teddies have been delivered to them this week for use in their Santa sacks.

Special Guest - Dr Ray Hodgson

Our Guest Speaker this week moved the audience, which included visitors from several other Rotary Clubs, with the horrifying figures and confronting images relating to maternal mortality and the incidence of genital prolapse in Nepal.

Dr Ray Hodgson, a gynaecologist and obstetrician in Port Macquarie, NSW, became aware of the problem of extreme genital prolapse in Nepal in 2010. Since that time he has been conducting 3 week medical camps in Nepal several times a year. He and his team of volunteer helpers contend with dodgy planes, precipitous roads, primitive working conditions and intermittent power outages to bring surgical help to Nepalese women, who are often quite young but impacted very severely by this problem.

Dr Ahmed Sharif SHEBA—Social Help Endeavour for Bangladesh

In an annual update of the SHEBA Project, which our Club has supported since its inception in 2013, Dr Sharif outlined briefly the growth, current situation and future goals of the project. From the original operation of one health centre 1 day per week, it has grown to 3 health centres plus mobile clinics, serving over 35,000 people. The services offered have also increased and fall under several headings:

• Preventative, curative and health promotion

• Clinic consultations

• Outreach—yard meetings, home visits, clinic by boat

• Pharmacy and Pathology

The Passport Club of Melbourne

Jenny Foster gave us an insite into a different style of Rotary Club.

In November 2019 the Passport Club was chartered as an International Passport Club, with 41 members, some of whom live in places such as Uganda, Cambodia and Malawi. The club meets at the Donations in Kind warehouse on the 1st Saturday of each month, if they can, but it is optional to meet in person. This club provides a better fit for some people as it is a project focussed club, with a requirement for members to do 30 volunteers hours per year. This volunteer work can be with any organisation and partnerships with NGOs and other such groups are encouraged.

 

We are a vibrant community based volunteer service club and welcome visitors at our weekly club meetings. If you'd like to come and join us for dinner one evening please feel most welcome! Please contact Marg Vesey (President) on 0455 500 428 or Kevin Harrison (Vice President) on 0419 919 011 to make arrangements.

Our Meetings are Held every Tuesday

6:30pm for 7:00pm Start
