The Rotary Passport Club of Melbourne has welcomed 5 Rotaractors from the Rotaract Club of Siem Reap, Cambodia, who are in Australia for the Rotary International Convention. Doeb, Lita, Phanich, Sokal and Tola have already done so much during their first week in Melbourne, including being guest speakers at a number of clubs in D9800, volunteering alongside RC Balwyn members at the Camberwell Sunday Market and hosting a community event. 

They also had close-up encounters with kangaroos and koalas, visited the beach, the Queen Victoria Market, watched a football match at the MCG and were hosted on a tour of parliament house by David Southwick MP. 

DG Amanda and DGE Ron joined numerous Rotarians at a community event on Sunday, where the Rotaractors briefly spoke about their backgrounds and their impactful community projects. 

The Rotaract Club of Siem Reap has two booths at the House of Friendship, where no doubt the Rotaractors will share their passion for sustainable community projects and development in Cambodia – their colourful booth number is 485.
