An opportunity to help one of the poorest countries in the world whilst sampling some hand-picked Margaret River wines.

Australian Doctors for Africa and the Rotary Club of Crawley have joined forces to raise funds to build a new Endoscopy Unit in Madagascar, one of the poorest countries in the world with a huge burden of gastrointestinal diseases. The aim is to provide a first world level endoscopy unit for treating and preventing gastrointestinal problems in adults and children. It is anticipated that the unit will also become a World Gastroenterology Training Centre* to train local doctors and nurses and enable research.

We have planned a wonderful evening from 6:00pm at Sea View Golf Club with hand selected wines, delicious canapes, auctions and raffle, and we’d love to see you there. Friends and family welcome!

Tickets $120 available here: https://www.trybooking.com/BDVEX

If you are not able to attend but wish to donate towards the Endoscopy Unit please go to our Donations page and let us know by email that it is for the Endoscopy Unit.

*The World Gastroenterology Organization (WGO) is the global umbrella organisation for national Gastroenterology Societies and currently supports 23 training centres in underdeveloped nations.
