Clients Support the Rotary Club of Tailem Bend to Give a Hand to those who don't have them

Adam and Roslyn Volunteer for Rotary 'Hands On' Project

It has been a busy first half of the year in the Murraylands with numerous projects and good news stories getting up and running!

In March, clients Adam and Roslyn volunteered their time and efforts to support the Rotary Club of Tailem Bend with their 'Hands On' project. This project involves building functional prosthetic hands from kit form and distributing them overseas to victims of landmines and war.

Adam and Roslyn were keen to get involved in the project after being approached by Sally Charlton, Project Manager for the 'Hands On' project and volunteer at Community Living Australia, to join the team.

Each hand takes two people approximately two hours to be assembled.  Adam and Roslyn worked together to assemble theirs and they left a message for the future recipient along with a photo of them both. This will be given to the recipient of the hand who will then provide a photo and message back of their own.  This establishes an important connection between the builder and the recipient, and will allow Adam and Roslyn to see the positive contribution they have made.

"The Hands On Project is an outstanding venture, and it is wonderful to see our clients getting involved to make a difference on a global scale," said Molly Baulch, Regional Manager for Community Living Australia. "Partnerships with local groups and initiatives such as these support our clients to develop their skills and self-esteem while actively participating in their community, and we could not be prouder of Adam and Roslyn for identifying a way in which they could positively contribute to society and provide a much needed service to someone in need," added Molly.
