Changing futures through our Rotary partnership

Interplast deeply appreciates the many Rotary clubs and districts which have made significant financial contributions, and wishes to recognise those which have been directly applied to specific program activities in the 2018-19 financial year.

These programs have included full plastic and reconstructive surgical programs of one to two weeks in duration, treating patients with acquired and congenital disabilities and providing training to local medical personnel, as well as training and mentoring programs focused on surgical skills, nurse education and allied health

In the 2018-19 financial year, a number of program activities were partially or fully funded by Rotary clubs and districts, as outlined below. Please note that programs may not be delivered in the same financial year as funds received.
