help­ing kids & their fam­i­lies

Hills to Hawkesbury Living Magazine - - Community News -

Last month The Ro­tary Club of The Hills-Kel­lyville had quite a bit to do with The Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal at West­mead. We held a suc­cess­ful Fa­ther’s Day Break­fast, where our club mem­bers made and served break­fast to the many fam­i­lies at the new Ronald McDon­ald House at West­mead. The club also pro­vided a spe­cialised, state of the art, Vi­sion­ary Spec­tralis Oct Di­ag­nos­tic Eye Imag­ing equip­ment to the hos­pi­tal. This ground-break­ing tech­nol­ogy now sup­ports the only ded­i­cated eye treat­ment clinic for chil­dren in NSW and al­lows pae­di­atric oph­thal­mol­o­gists to pro­vide the best med­i­cal care at The Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal at West­mead.

Fund­ing to the tune of $150,000 was needed for the Eye Imag­ing equip­ment project and this was made pos­si­ble through gen­er­ous fi­nan­cial sup­port from Ro­tar­i­ans and Ro­tary Dis­tricts in Aus­tralia and In­dia as a Global Grant project of The Ro­tary Foun­da­tion of Ro­tary In­ter­na­tional.

To be part of an in­spired group that are mak­ing a dif­fer­ence, con­tact the club though our web­site or our Face­book page.
