 ROMAC is a humanitarian Rotary programme which has been in operation since 1988.
 
Rotarians volunteer their time and expertise to run this Rotary programme which encompasses and is endorsed by all Australian and New Zealand Rotary Districts. ROMAC has no employees, no buildings, and no vehicles and consequently almost 100% of donations and grants received by ROMAC is spent on the children. Wherever possible eminent Australian and New Zealand surgeons donate their time for the treatment of our patients and these surgeons get unique opportunities to develop their specialist skills. During their recovery after surgery, the children and care-giver are looked after by New Zealand families, fostering international learning and understanding in the process.
