Rotary Club of Macau Visit

Many members of the Tettenhall Club take the opportunity to visit other clubs when travelling on business or pleasure. Club member Sammy Chung often travels to China and during his most recent visit he took the opportunity of attending a meeting of the Rotary Club of Macau where he had the pleasure of meeting the Macau Club President Keith Pharis.

Founded in 1947 the Macau club has been the meeting place for a wide cross section of Macau society, encompassing people of various professions and nationalities. They are fortunate to meet each week in Venetian Casino Hotel (in Sammy’s opinion one of the best Casino Hotels in Macau) and count amongst their members the Hotel’s senior manager Guy Lesquoy.

The meeting heard from Mr. Pui Fai IP on the work which the Club was carrying out assisting schools in a rural area of Guangxi Province, China. Working with their partners in the Rotary Clubs of Kowloon North, Taipei North, and Ama in Nagoya, together with the Macau Catholic Social Services, the members of the Macau club have helped to build and equip six primary schools and a middle school in remote mountain villages in Du’An, Guangxi Province.
