ROMAC Australia & New Zealand
Promising news from the Centennial Hospital for Women and Children in Canberra where 3 months old Vincent is recovering following life-saving surgery last week thanks to ROMAC – Rotary Oceania Medical Aid for Children.
Vincent was flown to Canberra by ROMAC in July to correct a blockage between his oesophagus and his stomach which required him to be fed through a catheter in his stomach – surgery that was not possible in his home country of the Solomon Islands.
Although he still has a long way to go, Vincent is doing well and a week after his surgery has had his chest drain, urinary catheter, and the tube from his oesophagus removed.
As always, ROMAC is very grateful for the many people who volunteer their expertise and time to ensure that young patients like Vincent receive the treatment they need. Without your dedication and commitment to ROMAC, changing young lives such as Vincent’s would not be possible. Thank you!

ROMAC provides medical treatment for children from developing countries in the form of lifesaving and dignity restoring surgery not accessible to them in their home country.
