The Rotary Club of Fiji celebrated its 80th anniversary with the launch of Rotary Stamps yesterday.

There were four new stamps launched and they all honoured the Rotary Clubs contribution to the community.

The first stamp costs 38 cents and has a picture of the medical incinerator for Wainibokasi hospital. The second stamp costs 62 cents and has a picture of the dialysis machine for the Kidney Foundation of Fiji. The third stamp costs $1.04 and has a picture of the emergency response kit while the fourth stamp costs 5 cents and has a picture of a braille machine for the Fiji Society of the Blind.

“The commemorating stamp we are launching today embraces all the good work that has been carried out by the Rotary Club of Suva over the past 10 years here in Fiji and these four have been selected to be the commemorating stamps for the 80th anniversary,” head of finance for Post Fiji Limited Willy Wong said.

“It was a good club until 1989 where it became a great club because there was a Supreme Court order in the United States of America that made it legal for women to join the Rotary club,” Acting President Ajay Amrit said.

Mr Amrit further elaborates that the funds raised in the Rotary Club are used to assist the people in need.

“We raise hundreds of thousands of dollars each year and every cent raised goes to help the community and there is zero administration cost,” Mr Amrit said.
