MAJOR PROJECT  2013 - 2014

 
Rotary Club of Queenstown Partners with Beyond Social Services to hold an "island Escape" to kusu island for children.

Singapore, 20 November 2013, (Rotary club of Queenstown (RCQ) is collaborating with Beyond Social services (BSS) to organise an exciting year end expedition for BSS children with their parents and guardians, to take them on a harbour cruise and island escape to Kusu Island on Saturday 30th November 2013.

In line with Beyond Social Services' commitment to work and disadvantaged children to manage problems, curb delinquency, strengthen families, and to integrate communities, RCQ hopes to, play a part in making a difference in these children's lives.

Hosted by RCQ members and their families, a total of 170 participants from various pick up points across Singapore will be picked up by bus and delivered to Marina south pier.  From there they will embark on two boats to take them on a voyage across the seas to kusu island.  The trip will also include a tour of the historical sites of Turtle island, a beach beach picnic lunch on the lagoon, and games and other entertainments for the children.  It will be a fun filled day for all, as the children are given a chance to go on a discovery journey and also bond with family and friends over various interactive activities.

RCQ is delighted to be associated with BSS and to be putting together this island escape doe BSS's children.  Through this initiative, RCQ hopes to make a genuine contribution to family happiness and community well-being.




MAJOR PROJECT 2012-2013

Rotary Club of Queenstown, Singapore has adopted “Cataract Surgery Bogor” as its Major Project 2012-2013 to help Cataract sufferers in Indonesia to regain their sight. Within the project headed by PE Dr Hans Jaeger, RCQ is happy to co-operate again with Rotary Club of Bogor, Indonesia as local partner to ensure its successful and efficient execution

Save the date - Fund-Raising Dinner on Friday, 8 March 2013


The project background:

Cataract is an eye disease which still haunts many people in rural Indonesia. Zircon opacification or clouding of the lens is a condition impairing tremendously the sight of elderly people. If it remains untreated, it can lead in the long-run to complete blindness. A Cataract Operation is a minimal invasive surgery. -The natural lens is replaced by a small artificial lens bringing back full visibility.

RC Bogor is going to coordinate the entire project accordingly. The club approaches and selects patients and organizes the surgery with the eye clinic Klinik Mata “Dr Hasri Ainun Habibie”. RCQ will take care of the fundraising part.

Our fundraising target:

Within the project the costs for a cataract operation amounts to IDR 2 Mio (approx. SGD 300.00) per eye (or approx. SGD 600.00 per patient). This includes testing and a post-surgery review. RCQ’s target is to raise funds among members to sponsor the operation of at least 75 patients (approx. SGD 45,000.00). All we need is another SGD 4,100.00 in contributions.

CLEFT LIP SURGERY PROJECT, INDONESIA

16 – 17 FEBRUARY 2012


Rotary Club of Queenstown, Singapore supported the “Cleft Lip Surgery Project” in Indonesia which had been initiated by Rotary Club of Bogor and Rotary Club of Jakarta Sentral. The project was realized in February 2012. Rtn Dr Hans Jaeger who had introduced that project to RCQ and coordinated it jointly with RC Bogor and RC Jakarta Sentral went with a delegation in February 2012 to Jakarta.

The project background:
Approximately one in every 2,500 babies in Indonesia is born with a cleft lip and/or cleft palate. Children from low income families might have not the chance to receive this life-changing surgery. With as little as SGD 800.00, one cleft lip surgery can change a child’s life forever.
Within the joint project the patients were appointed by the Yayasan Citra Baru Foundation from the Bogor area. The surgeries were done in selected Jakarta hospitals by Indonesian doctors. By law, only Indonesians are allowed to carry out medical work.



The RCQ delegation met with RC Bogor and RC Jakarta Sentral to hand over the cheque with the amount of SGD 6,000.00. Thanks to the donations several children could receive in February 2012 the life-changing surgery.
