Transforming lives through life-saving surgeries

Transforming lives through life-saving surgeries

Join us on August 12th (Wednesday evening) as we hear from PDG Harold Sharpe OAM about the amazing life-saving and dignity-restoring work that Rotary International does with children in the Pacific Region.

Harold is currently Chairman of ROMAC (Rotary Oceania Medical Aid for Children) which brings children from the Pacific Region to Australia and New Zealand hospitals for surgeries that are not available to them in their home country.

Harold joined Rotary in 1977 and is currently a member of the Rotary Club of Crows Nest in Sydney.

Previously employed as the Director of Community Relations and Marketing at the Royal NSW Institute for Deaf and Blind Children, Harold organised the Tunnel Walk and Day of Celebration held in conjunction with the Opening of the Sydney Harbour Tunnel in 1992.  This involved over 2000 Rotarians from Sydney who acted as Marshalls and Volunteers on the day – an event which saw 350,000 people walk through the tunnel on that day, and raised over $750,000 for the Charity.

Harold held the position of Club President of Crows Nest in 1996 and Governor for the district in 2002-03.

Harold has held many board positions both at club and district level and was part of the organising committee for the Rotary International Convention held in Sydney in 2014. He is a multiple Paul Harris Fellow and a recipient of the prestigious Rotary International Service Above Self award.

He was awarded an OAM in June 2020 for Service to the Community and Charity Initiatives.

This meeting will be held through Zoom on Wednesday August 5th at 7.30pm, and guests are most welcomed to join in.  If you would like an invite, please drop an email with your details to our Secretary at

See you then!
