Mary Queen of Peace Community Project

On the outskirts of Lae in Papua New Guinea is a small Catholic School and Health Clinic.  The Mary Queen of Peace Community is under development to serve the needs of the people in Malahang and the surrounding areas.

Last week the Rotary Club of Cleveland was visited by Sister Cathy from the Mary Queen of Peace Community.  This is another step in the emerging relationship between the Club and the Community.  Members of the Club learned about the challenges that Sister Cathy and the other religious and lay workers in the Mary Queen of Peace Community face in bringing education and community health services to the Malahang community.  Challenges that we hardly dare to contemplate.

The Club has decided to support the development of the Mary Queen of Peace Community as an ongoing International Service Project.  Through Donations in Kind (DIK) and Rotary Australia World Community Service (RAWCS) there are opportunities to provide desks, chairs, library shelving and books to fit out the school, and basic hospital equipment for the community health facility. There are opportunities to financially support the education of children - education in PNG is not free.  Over time there will be opportunities to visit the community and see first hand the work being undertaken.

PP Albert Benfer has been a long time supporter of Rotary working in PNG.  Our closest neighbour has a special place in the lives of many Australians.

Have you made the decision?

Have you thought about the opportunity to help others through organ and tissue donation?

Well we were all challenged to do just that by Alana Cresswell and David Clune of DonateLife.  This is the public face of the Australian Government Organ and Tissue Authority.

Organ and tissue transplantation is no longer experimental - our Australian surgeons are increadibly skilled.  Age is not necessarily a barrier to organ and tissue donations up to the age of 90 years, though it is a factor in the assessment of the viability of potential organs and tissues.

Is our community dementia friendly?

Tonight we were joined by Michelle Schlitter and Ann Donaghy from Centacare and learnt what it is like to be a dementia friendly community.  As our population ages we all find ourselves confronted in some way with issues that make our lives or those of others less comfortable.

Dementia is the term used to describe the symptoms of a group of illnesses which impact on a person's functioning - memory, intellect, rationality, social skills and physical function.  These illnesses can happen to anyone but they are more common after the age of 65.
