  • Donations of books and glasses

  • Appeals

    • Over the Club's history, members gave a lot of their time each year in helping raise money in door-to-door appeals. The first record of the Club supporting SCF appears in 1975 when members assisted with an appeal which raised $1175.

    • The last record of assisting with street appeals was 1992.

1972. Ethiopian Fistula Gynaecological Hospital.

Purpose:   In 1972, Dr Reg Hamlin,  spoke to the Club on the work he and his wife were doing at  the Fistula Gynaecological Hospital in Addis Abba. The International Committee of the Club decided to try and help in a small way. Dr Hamlin's father was an early settler in the Taradale. 

Means:      Des Lanigan and International Committee organised car wash. The wash raised $112 after about 45 members helped wash 110 cars.

  • In 1973, the Club contributed another $100 to the Hospital.


Outcome: While not a great amount, the contribution represents a link that this Club has with what has now become an international famous hospital in its work with women in a very poor third world country. In 1973 52 dozen optical glasses were collected on behalf  of Sister Crombie. an also dispatched to Ethiopia. It is not known if the destination was the hospital.

History:    A search of the Internet reveals the following about Dr's Reg and Catherine Hamlin. The extracts are taken from a site related to the release of her book "The Hospital by the River: A Story of Hope"

This is the story of Dr Catherine Hamlin, Fellow ad eundem, Chief Executive Officer of the Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital in Ethiopia. Dr Hamlin has earned international admiration for her and her late husband Reg Hamlin’s (who died in 1993) work in the treatment of Ethiopian women suffering from shocking injuries as a result of childbirth.

The Doctors arrived in Ethiopia about 40 years ago and were stunned to find that many young women suffered horrific internal injuries which left them with urinary and faecal incontinence. The young women were often ostracised by the community and forced to live lives of abject poverty. In the vast majority of cases the child died at birth.

This wonderful book tells the story of how the young women are cured with intricate surgical techniques and how they are restored to health so that they can lead fulfilling lives. Often the girls remarry and have healthy children in a safe environment. Sadly, the injuries still occur today and the work is still ongoing and needs support.

Catherine Hamlin was born in Sydney Australia and graduated from the University of Sydney in 1946.  She met and married a New Zealander Dr Reginald Hamlin when they were both Senior Medical Administrators at Crown Street Women's Hospital Sydney.  In 1958 they answered an advertisement in the Lancet Medical Journal, for an obstetrician and gynaecologist to establish a Midwifery School in Ethiopia. 

In 1958 they answered an ad in a Medical Journal for an obstetrician and gynaecologist to establish a Midwifery School in the General Hospital in Addis Ababa.  They then went to Addis Ababa in 1959 on a three year contract with the Ethiopian Government.

1981. Operation Pharmac

Peter Sugden, Dr Ted Morris, and project convenor,Doug Rees

Purpose:   The project, sponsored by the Taradale Rotary Club, aimed at the collection, from households throughout the Napier district, of unused medical preparations.

Means:      Peter Sugden, Dr Ted Morris, and project convenor,Doug Rees, organised the collection by encouraging people to clear out their medical cabinet of unused drugs and bring them into local pharmacy collecting points. After collection, they were  identified and sorted by a doctor-chemist team  for delivery to a New Zealand relief agency, Medical Aid Abroad, who organised the recycling to clinics, hospitals, refugee camps and disaster areas in the South Pacific and South-East Asia areas.  Success for the project —dubbed "Operation Pharmac" — depended heavily on the  co-operation and goodwill of the people of Napier, who responded brilliantly.

Outcome: Many poor people in third world regions benefited from this collection. It was the first of a number of glasses projects conducted by members of the Club.

1993 Rotahomes in Fiji

Purpose:   Members of International were shown a video about the Rotahome scheme and were supportive. This programme has taken off internationally, and Clubs around the world sponsor the building of a simple home to alleviate the poverty many rural Fijians experience living in tiny tin shacks.

Means:      Bob Twaddle was asked to look at fund raising. It was decided to use Home Hosting funds. About $900 is required to build a home. Approaches to the Rotorua Rotary Club  indicates they are willing to share half the cost. However the Te Kuiti RC write re-sharing costs of a Rotahome and co-sponsor with the Club

Outcome: The Club can feel pleased that another family in Fiji is now living in improved conditions.

The following report was published that year in the Taradale Courier       

Funds give vital shelter

A Fijian family now has basic shelter and living essentials thanks to funds raised by the Taradale Rotary Club.

The family of seven was evicted from a "terrible hovel of a shack" near a crematorium on the edge of a mangrove swamp. The flimsy, 4m by 2.5m subsiding shack was subjected to floods, tidal waves, cyclones, flies and mosquitoes, according to Rotary information.

Last year Taradale Rotary joined with its Te Kuiti equivalent to raise money for a "Rotahome", a two- room ventilated house. It recently received pictures of the completed home, and the thrilled family.

Building the Rotahomes is a international Rotary project, launched by the Lautoka Rotary Club in early 1985 after devastating cyclones left nearly 10,000 people homeless. It is hoped that by the year 2000 there will be no families living in sub-human conditions anywhere on the west half of Fiji.

So far 417 homes had been built (at a rate of two a week) to break the cyclone-build-cyclone-build cycles, and 118 water tanks have been erected to help stop disease.

1994. The Yakkum Rehabilitation Centre, Indonesia

Purpose:   In early 1994, Dan Cotton spoke to the Club about the rehabilitation of physically disabled children in Indonesia. "Dan explained how Colin McClennan initiated this essential work to provide medicine, surgical correction and assistance with schooling and work training."

The again in November 1996, Dan introduced two speakers who are associated with the Centre.

"Dan Cotton introduced the two speakers, Ibu Mundarsi & Jenny File, both of whom are from Indonesia where they help run the Yakkum Rehabilitation Centre, a church run organisation established with NZ assistance in 1982 by the NZ Rehab Trust of which Dan is a member. The Centre is now entirely run by Indonesians but the NZ Trust still assists with finance.

"Ibu spoke on the structure of the Centre. The objective of the Centre is to rehabilitate disabled people to become useful members of their communities. The Indonesian population is 190,000,000 made up of 17,000 islands, 6000 of which are habitable. 5,800,000 are disabled in some way, 1,600,000 being physically disabled. To get into the Centre a person must be from a very poor family, between 4 - 25 years old, permanently physically disabled, be capable of rehabilitation, and have no other means of assistance. The assistance given is in the form of medical services, education, vocational training in such areas as wood carving, electrical repair, hairdressing, sewing,"

Means:      The International Committee, chaired by Iain Angus, took up the challenge to raise funds to assist with the purchase of such items as a wheel chair, artificial leg, or pay school fees etc. They asked that the Sergeants fund for a week go to this, with the Club then matching it dollar for dollar. It was reported the $300 was raised.

  • In 1994, however the Club donated $1000 to the Trust making up the amount raised.

  • Again in 1997, the Club donated $1000 to the Trust.

Outcome: The funds were sent to the Trust and used to assist with rehabilitation. The Internet site for the Rehabilitation Centre gives this account of itself:

Background: The YAKKUM Rehabilitation Center was established in 16 November 1982 by formerly the name of Proyek Rehabilitasi Bethesda (= Bethesda Rehabilitation Project ).

It has come to existence by the original ideas of Colin F.A McLennan MBE of New Zealand, intended to assist in the rehabilitation of the physically disabled children and young adults in Indonesia. Communion of Presbyterian and Methodist churches in New Zealand financially supported the ideas through Rehabilim Trust.

1994, Suturing Equipment to PNG

Out-going President Greg Gear,Change-over night 1995

Purpose:   This was a project where we really tried, but circumstances prevailed that were beyond our control. The purpose was to provide much needed surgical equipment for the local hospital in Garoka, PNG.

Means:      In 1993, Greg Gear decided to capitalise on his expertise in bee-keeping, and applied to work for VSA in Papua-New Guinea. After two years trying to get a work permit, he and Shirley eventually left for Garoka in the PNG highlands in 1993.

The Bulletin reports form a talk Greg gave after he had returned to NZ and rejoined the Club.

"While in Goroka, Greg joined the Rotary Club, whose members promptly decided he was President material (it must be that grey beard), so Greg was duly inducted and presided over a membership of about 21. During he "reign" he organised a matching grant program with TRC to provide suturing equipment for the local hospital.


Outcome:  "However, as so often happens in the Third World, the stainless steel trays which came with them looked like great cooking utensils, and so they disappeared very quickly!!"

"Greg concluded with the gems that while there he had a school named after him, and a promptly bequeathed them a holiday known as the Greg Gear Holiday!"

1986 Water Tank Project in Samoa

Ron (left) with Sister Zita fourth from left

Purpose:   This project started with a visit by Sister Zita to the Club. She had been introduced by Dave Nichol. Her talk about the problems at Logoi'pulotu School on the island of Savai'i in Western Samoa was taken up by Ron Ward's International Committee, who organised books, farming equipment, pumps, piping etc to help the school meet its needs. After the goods had been shipped to the Islands, they sat on the wharf because no one would pay the custom duty on them.

The tank and its header tower

Means:    The Club decided to send Ron to Western Samoa, and Kel Tremain managed to organise a free air ticket from Polynesian Airlines for Ron Ward. Ron got a letter of introduction from NZ Foreign Affairs to the Prime Minister of Western Samoa, and so armed, Ron departed to battle the local bureaucracy. A visit to the Prime Minister's office gained Ron access to any government department he wished to approach, and the goods were soon on their way to Savai'i.

Ron spent 8 days at the school completing the water tank. A header tank already existed, but the holding tank had to be completed, the tanks connected and a water pump connected. Sister Zita records that on the 14th May, 1986 "The tank is finalised. Great rejoicing"

The completed tank

The Taradale Rotary Club had provided all the materials to complete this project. The Club also provided an electric fence and Ron was able to see that this was being effectively used to keep the school's cattle fenced in.

Ron did additional work while in Samoa, setting up a radio service using obsolete mountain radio service sets. During Cyclone Ofa in 1990, these sets provided the only communication between the main islands of Savai'i and Upolo.

On a visit to the Club in November 1985 Sister Zita was presented with a cheque for $3940 to help with renewing the water tanks. Dave Nichol organises a 200 Club raffle for Sister Zita to raise additional funds.

Logoi'pulotu School, Savai'i, Samoa

Outcome: This project was a very successful one, one the Club can be proud of, as the school was well served with water for the rest of its short history. The Catholic Education Department in Western Samoa was forced to close the school in 1998 as enrolments had fallen to unsustainable levels.

In May 2006. Bob McCaw, on a work trip to Suva, took time out to visit the office of the HEAVEN organisation and presented cheque of $FJ1000 to their Director Vani Volatabu.

In August 2006, Bob returned to Suva with his wife Glenys. 100 pairs of glasses had been collected by Tom Royden of the International Committee with the help of Brian Wright and others. Glenys delivered them, with Malcolm Paterson of the Suva North Rotary Club, and a trustee of Project Heaven, to the Trust HQ in Tamavua, Suva. The photo also shows Vani, the Project CEO. They were delighted with the contribution and will accept as many as we can send. These glasses will end up with children in the Lau group of islands.

Vani, Glenys, Mal and Frank Hilton (Trustee, Heaven)

In August 2008, the exercise was repeated following a plea from Malcolm Paterson for more glasses. Alan White, with only 2 weeks notice collected a box load which Bob and Glenys carried into the country and again Glenys delivered the glasses with the help of Mal Paterson.

Outcome:  May 27 2010. Report in the Fiji Times THE Australian Government has committed more than $0.25million to Project HEAVEN to assist with the organisation's efforts to identify and remedy vision and hearing problems among school children in Fiji.

The funding of AUD$150,000 (F$252,806.27) was announced by the acting Australian High Commissioner, Sarah Roberts, at Veiuto Primary School yesterday.

This support from AusAid is fantastic and shows that our support has been well placed.

2008. Rotary Shelter Boxes

Shelter box contents

Double click to see larger view

Purpose:   Rotary Shelterboxes is an international organisation which instantly responds to earthquake, volcano, flood, hurricane, cyclone, tsunami or conflict by delivering boxes of aid.

According to the Shelterbox Website, each box supplies an extended family of up to 10 people with a tent and lifesaving equipment to use while they are displaced or homeless. The contents are tailored depending on the nature and location of the disaster, with great care taken sourcing every item to ensure it is robust enough to be of lasting value.

Shelter tents deployed near Karachi as a result of floods 2010.

The cost of a box is $1,500, including delivery direct to those who need it. Each box bears its own unique number so as a donor you can track your box all the way to its recipient country via the website

Highly trained ShelterBox Response Teams distribute boxes on the ground, working closely with local organisations, international aid agencies and Rotary clubs worldwide.

Since its inception in 2000, ShelterBox has firmly established itself at the forefront of international disaster relief, providing emergency shelter for the people who need it most on every continent.

Warren Cooper talks to Alan White outside a display tent at Mitre 10.

Means:      March 2008. Ross Ross-Taylor spoke for the first time about Shelter boxes telling members of the global reach of the project with so far, 35,000 distributed around the world. They cost $1,500 each which provides for the purchase of all contents and delivery when needed. The club agreed unanimously to fund one.

April 2010. Our club has provided $3000 funding for two boxes this year. These will go towards replacing the hundreds which have been recently sent off to Haiti and other disaster zones. Each shelterbox provides the necessary equipment to support up to 10 people. We have also recently obtained short term use of a display box from District resources which is currently in use by Havelock North. It will soon be on display in our area at Mitre 10 Mega and New World, Greenmeadows, arranged by Alan White. A small collection at the site netted about $200 from interested public members.

Outcome: Close to home, 40 shelter boxes were dispatched to Samoa in response to the 2009 tsunami. This is just one example of how Rotary responds to the need for shelter following natural disasters.
