Dear Members and Friends of the Rotary Club of Sydney Darling Harbour,

We have exciting Guest Speaker Gwamaka Mwasakifwa for our in person meeting on the 9th of August. I meet Gwamaka as part of project in Nepal where we went to remote village to help with medical camp dedicated to Women with prolapsed uteruses. It will be an interesting talk to hear about his latest venture and utilizing a cloud-based digital health platform in countries in Africa and Australia.

To get more involved with volunteering there is a great opportunity to volunteer for the City to Surf event on 13th August to assist with Marshalling. It is a back bone of volunteering work that we show up to and assist in this city celebrated event. For more information, or to get involved, visit

Final Thoughts

Did you know the first candles were placed in birthday cakes as a way of honoring the Greek goddess of worship? Speaking of candles, the first birthday cake with candles was had in 18th century Greece. Europeans were the first ones to use noisemakers on someone’s birthday, as they thought it would help keep evil spirits away.

Looking forward to seeing you at our Virtual meeting on July 26th at 6.00 PM. For more information visit
