Our club has undertaken to assist Kara House, a Box Hill refuge for abused women, with refurbishment of its kitchen. The current kitchen does not meet legal requirements and needs to be demolished and a complying kitchen created.
The project is being part funded by the Dick Smith Compassionate Grant Funding. Entrepreneur Dick Smith has made available to Australian Rotary the sum of $1m to be used for small compassionate projects. The website states that grants will be limited to $10,000 to an entity in a calendar year.
MASH has been fortunate to attract the maximum grant for our project.
