1969 Accomplishments: Supplying diagnostic equipment to the Lara Reis Cancer Hospital. Completed 1965* Plans: To strengthen and expand the club. To push the Ka Ho Leprosorium projects. Apart from financial difficulties, we have the additional problem resulting from the disturbances which took place about two years ago. Now we find certain sections of the community rather reluctant to associate themselves with Rotary and other similar organizations. This has placed a limit on the club’s field of Community Service. However, it is hoped to concentrate and make the club’s activities more effective where acceptable.
Successes: A joint project with the Res. of North Bankstown and Penrith of Australia and other welfare organizations in Macau to supply a water reservoir for the Leprosarium of Ka-Ho, Coloane Island. Objectives 1 – A project and building plan for building a youth camp which, may accommodate 50 problem youth supplied to the municipal police force was offered by us. 2 – Furniture and some facility for ‘the prospective youth camp will be supplied at the end of this Rotary year. 3 – Christmas gifts for the underprivileged children in Portugal.
