All Inner Wheel member countries were invited to submit an entry for the Project and Poetry Competition.  The entry was required to showcase that country’s efforts to “Leave a Lasting Legacy”.

The Project and Poetry Competition received 45 fabulous entries which were displayed in the House of Friendship.  The Convention Team had the twenty winning entries and twenty five runners-up compiled into a beautiful book which Convention Coordinator Val Corva had the pleasure of presenting, during the Closing Ceremony, to IIW President Dr. Kapila Gupta as a tribute and thanks for her leadership, her wonderful 2017-2018 year and theme.  These projects truly epitomise the inspirational service work of IIW members globally.

Inner Wheel District A53 assists new Birthing Centre in Nepal

Inner Wheel District A53 provided funds to equip the new Birthing Centre in the recently constructed Hospital at Jibajibe in Nepal.

The Hospital is located in the remote Rasuawa District to the north-west of Kathmandu and sits on a mountain-top, which is accessed by 53 miles of very poor roads. The building was funded by Rotary and built by the High Himalayan Community Project.

Inner Wheel District A53 (Sydney and surrounds) recently provided funds to equip the new Birthing Centre with beds, cupboards, general supplies, etc. and medical equipment (steriliser, hand held ultrasound, suction equipment, humidicrib) together with a backup generator.  Women can now have their babies in relative safety and comfort (versus the buffalo shed).

PDC Wendy Wonson (IWC West Harbour secretary) and her daughter recently visited the hospital. Wendy was very moved by the presentation ceremony and the wall plaque and the clear joy of the staff at having a well equipped hospital to look after mums and babies in a way that was not possible before.

Thanks go to Inner Wheel District A53, High Himalayan Community Projects and other donors.
