Donate Today to Help Save A Child’s Life
You can donate to Rotary Oceania Medical Aid for Children. Your donation helps ROMAC’s mission to restore dignity and save the lives of children in our region. This benefits not only the lives of the children, but has a positive impact on their community as well.
All donations over $2 to ROMAC in Australia are tax deductible. Charitable donations over $5 in New Zealand may be eligible. If you are a USA tax payer, your ROMAC donation is not a 501(c) (3) Tax Deductible Contribution.
This humanitarian program is run entirely by Rotarian volunteers; surgeons donate their expertise, hospitals often reduce costs and there are minimal overheads no office, no paid staff etc – giving great value for every dollar you donate.
Even better, your donation is spent in our countries (Australia and New Zealand) supporting our local communities near the hospitals where the children are treated. ROMAC, the children and their families are most appreciative of all bequests and donations.

4. What are donations used for?
5. What other ways can I help?
Gifts and In-Kind Donations
Bringing patients into Australia and then accommodating them is an expensive activity. There are airfares for a patient and their carer, accommodation, local travel expenses, often clothing requirements because of the different climate from their origin, food and toiletries, pharmaceutical needs and a host of other expenses.
Donations in kind and gifts are a wonderful way to support the ROMAC program. Contact your local Regional Chair if you can provide support.
Make a Bequest
Including a gift to ROMAC in your Will is a lasting and meaningful way of helping to change and often save the lives of underprivileged and deserving children through the ROMAC program.
