24 May Meeting

  • This week Kaikohe Rotary had the pleasure of hearing hearing from Jacqui Bradnam who is a member of the Rotary Club of Savusavu. Jacqui and her husband Mike farmed for many years near Kaikohe before selling up and moving to Savusavu, which is on the northern Fijian island of Vanua Levu and has a population of 4000 - similar to Kaikohe.

  • Jacqui told us Savusavu Rotary has just 13 members, many of whom are expatriates. Currently, so many of them are overseas that the club cancel this week's meeting.But when their members are home the club is so active that it puts many bigger clubs to shame. Jacqui went over Savusavu Rotary's main projects.

  • These include safe water stations (SWS) which can transform water from streams, rivers or other sources to drinkable standard within 30 minutes. Rotarians get in their cars and travel on rough roads distributing units to villages the length and breadth of Vanua Levu.

  • Savusavu Rotary also builds bus shelters, provides planter boxes for the town's streets, provides equipment for the town's hospital and helps students at local schools. But Jacqui emphasised that Savusavu Rotary is a small club and needs support from overseas Rotary clubs to continue its work.
