Vincent is a remarkably happy little fellow but his start in life has been difficult to say the least.          Born in May, 2019 his stomach was initially outside his body and so was blocked from his oesophagus.....without medical assistance the future was bleak indeed.   In July 2019 his case was adopted by ROMAC....Rotary Oceanic Medical Aid for Children....and so began a long and bumpy road to recovery
A long flight from hot Honiara, via Bribane, saw Vincent and his Mum Cosinta arrive in a chilly Canberra, with rotarians assisting through port transfers, providing cold weather clothing and a neonatal ambulance to the Canberra Hospital.
Seven moths later, ater untold medical procedures with assistance donated from surgeons, Ronald McDonald House, Canberra Hospital and untold personal commitment from Canberra based rotarians, Vincent is finally able to take begin the new experience of learning to eat.
Its an amazing story and Gosford Rotary is proud to have lent financial assistance to ROMAC.
