Dear President,
Interplast has been part of Rotary in Australia and New Zealand since its inception in 1983. Since then the work of Interplast’s professional volunteers from across New Zealand and Australia has resulted in over 25,000 life changing plastic and reconstructive surgeries and the training of countless medical staff across 17 developing countries across the Asia-Pacific region. Rotary is vital to this achievement in both governance and support.
Congenital conditions such as cleft lip and palate, burns contractures and trauma injuries are all treated by our volunteer teams. Interplast’s ‘twin track’ approach of delivering surgical services and providing training/mentoring programs changes futures for our neighbours in these countries.
We respectfully ask that you give consideration to support Interplast, one of Rotary’s most productive partnerships.
Interplast is a wonderful health and training program and one most worthy of your Club’s support.
Please contact me to be a guest speaker or for a short presentation to help your Club learn more about one of Rotary’s best partnerships.
Interplast has a signed MOU with RNZWCS Ltd. for the issuing of NZ tax deductible receipts.
