PDG Graham Jones, Marion Jones, Sam Doumany, Sandra Doumany, Prof. Ian O'Conner AC, Rob Borbridge AC at the presentation at Griffith University.
 
Professor and Past District Governor Graham Jones and the Hon Sam Doumany were both made Honorary Fellows of the Institute for Glycomics, Griffith University for founding the Malaria Vaccine Project. This is a project of the Rotary Clubs of Southport, Hope Island and Broadbeach in partnership with Griffith University's Institute for Glycomics. Funds of $500,000 are required to continue research in human trials for a promising vaccine to eliminate the Malaria disease.
 
The project is advanced to the testing on humans stage and the funding to progress the intensive trials is needed urgently.

Kerrie Brown has chosen ROMAC as her project for the year and using the catchy name "Stitches for Stitches" has made a decorative cushion for each club to use as a fundraising effort for ROMAC. Clubs are free to choose the method to utilise the cushion, but Kerrie hopes that every club will participate.
 
ROMAC (Rotary Oceania Medical Aid for Children) provides life changing surgery to children from Timor-Leste, Papua New Guinea and the Pacific Islands. ROMAC relies on the financial support of Rotary clubs to cover operating costs.

Rotary, the World Health Organization, UNICEF and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention launched the Global Polio Eradication Initiative in 1988.
In 2007, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation joined Rotary in its commitment to ending polio.
Since 2013, the Gates Foundation has matched every $1 Rotary commits to polio eradication 2-to-1, up to $35 million per year.
Rotary, with matching funds from the Gates Foundation, has contributed more than $1.6 billion to end polio.

At hundreds of sites in Pakistan, teams of health workers verify that every child passing through receives the polio vaccine. Another child, another family, another generation is protected, and Pakistan moves one step closer to having zero polio cases.
