Rotary Australia Proposal to battle trachoma
At a recent NGIAM Bruce Dufty outlined some of the issues currently being faced in Western Australia with the increase in reported cases of trachoma - a condition previously attributed to third world countries which can lead to blindness.
Trachoma is often passed from person to person through poor facial hygeine and dirty laundry - particularly towels and bedding.
Recognising that many of the laundry items are difficult to wash, and that many people in the community are not able to regularly launder their linen, Rotary Australia have created a proposal to start a public laundromat in Leonora.
Bruce has been visiting Leonora regularly to search appropriate locations for this service, and suitable people to manage such a facility.
Below is a link to the proposal, and any support/funding for this program is welcomed and encouraged.
