TB in Timor-Leste
 
In 2022, the Rotary Club of Brisbane provided funds to Klibur Domin. A charity based in Timor-Leste to enable them to recruit several healthcare workers. To provide TB treatment {that can cure TB}, and TB education to people in more remote areas of the country.  A country that in recent history had the highest death rate from TB in the world, and one of the highest case numbers. The club regularly reviews the progress being made by the workers. The club also listed the project as a RAWCS project. https://directory.rawcs.com.au/52-2021-22.  
 
Brisbane Arts Theatre
 
We have partnered with the not-for-profit, The Brisbane Arts Theatre.  
One of our projects with them is to help them fund Mental Health First Aid training for their staff, and volunteers. So, that they can better respond to a mental health crisis of a friend or family member. 
 
Myanmar Project
 
Helping the people of Myanmar by supporting health, and educational organizations within Myanmar.  And supporting projects in surrounding countries. In some of the refugee camps where many Burmese people have had to flee to. 
 
Eradicating  Rabies
 
Working with the charity Mission Rabies to help eradicate rabies in India. Rabies still kills over 55,000 people globally. It is 100% fatal without quick treatment. Most deaths are caused by rabid dogs. By vaccinating dogs, we can help reduce most of the deaths from rabies. We are helping to fund an educational officer for Mission Rabies. 
 
Study Groups
 
We have established a number of study groups to learn more deeply about the Club's service projects. 
 
These study groups are open to not only club members, but members of other Rotary clubs, and friends of Rotary. 
 
Catherine's House
 
The Rotary Club of Brisbane in recent history made a significant donation to help establish Catherine's House, located at the Mater Hospital. It is "a perinatal mental health service for mothers, babies and families." And more recently, the club made another donation.

27 Rotarians were at DIK last Saturday 23rd June.

 This was the wrap up of DIK’s time at Durack.  This is because the owner wants his property back, and gave 6 months’ notice last November.  From our club Brisbane Rotary, there were 6 members – Denise Schellbach, Keith Watts, James Delahunty, Jacqui Page, Robyn Burridge and John Smerdon.
The Rotary Club of Brisbane funded a shipment of 2,500 kits to kids in remote areas of Timor Leste in 2018. The Project has evolved through collaboration by the Rotary Club of Townsville and the Veterans Care Association based in Brisbane. Old Army buddies Bruce Scott from Rotary in Townsville and Gary Stone from Veterans Care Association agreed in late 2016 on the utilisation of participants in the Timor Awakening rehabilitation programme, to pack and deliver in person to each child, a small education kit comprised of an exercise book, a pencil, rubber, ruler and a Ziploc plastic bag to carry them in. The items for the kits are purchased in Dili by Rotary with funds raised in Australia.
When he took office in July, 2017, Rotary's global leader, Rotary International President Ian Riseley challenged all Rotary Clubs across the world to plant one tree per Rotarian as a sign that Rotary is committed to sustaining and improving the environment. Rotary District 9600, to which the Rotary Club of Brisbane belongs, took up the challenge with project "Target 1414" to plant at least one tree for each of the 1414 Rotarians in the 65 clubs throughout the district.
Rotarians from District 9600 present and ready for action in project "Target 1414".
Led by Terry Kung, a team of 4 Rotarians from the RCoB took part in the annual Clean Up Australia Day.
 
Terry, Michael Stephens, Luke Marshall and Keith Watts participated at the Hamilton Reach site which was coordinated by Leon Hays, MD of Solar Bins Australia.
 
In the Words of Terry Kung, " We collected quite a bit of rubbish especially along MacArthur Ave.  It was a morning of hard work under strong sun but well worth it."   It was also a good networking opportunity to meet other people who like to put something back into the community and as usual, Membership Chair Keith picked up some strong leads.
