The first ShelterBox aid distributed in Nepal 
has gone to medical staff from damaged hospitals in Kathmandu
 so that they have safe, covered spaces to treat patients:



Remember when people around the world poured ice 
over themselves in the name of Motor Neurone Disease?
 Well this week is MND Awareness Week, 

Australian Rotary Health has funded 9 PhD Scholarships
 and 5 Research Project Grants for research into #MND
 totaling $1,060,000! 
If research into MND is important to you,
 you can donate anytime with a message indicating 
where you would like your funds to be used

Rotary Club of Northam
The Rotary  Club Northam had planned to have a trip to Vietnam
 commencing in Ho Chi Minh city (Saigon) on Sunday 12th July.
Unfortunately we’ve had a couple pull out
 and so we are now seeking interested Rotarians to join with us.
Duration of the trip is 2 weeks covering the southern half of Vietnam
 as far North as Hue (pronounced WAY).
Participants can choose their own airline and the plan
 is to be ready at Saigon Airport to fly North to Da Nang 
on Sunday morning 12th July at 08.00am.
Rotarian Dick Johnston with his Vietnamese wife “Thom” 
will lead the tour and transport will be by small coaster bus 
with a casual itinerary – e.g. participants deciding on a daily basis
 whether they move on to, and where they stay.
 3 Star hotels are proposed and estimated cost for transport
 accommodation and meals is $150pp per day.
Tour will conclude in Saigon on Saturday evening 25th July.
It is planned to visit the Swimming Teachers program
 initiated by Rtn Dick Johnston when he was a member of Rotary Club of Hillarys.
 See “Humanity in Motion” book pages 48,49
 for information on the “Swim to Live” program.

Interested Rotarians/partners are invited to contact
Rtn Jan Horsley, President of Rotary Club of Northam 
by no later than Monday 11th May 
or phone 0477706820 for more details.
