Lydia Ko is a fine ambassor for ROMAC

LYDIA KO, New Zealand’s most successful golfer and one of the world’s most successful female golfers, has become an ambassador for Rotary Oceania Medical Aid for Children ROMAC), Rotary’s multi-District project which brings children from Pacific Island countries to Australia and New Zealand for life saving and dignity restoring surgery that is not available to them in their own countries.

Lydia is very well known in golfing circles and the recent announcement of her intention to turn professional at the young age of 16, means that her profile can only get bigger.

This news comes on the back of a developing Rotary relationship between NZ and Korea, with Rotary Districts 9910 and 3730 having partnered a successful ROMAC Matching Grant project in 2012/2013 and having agreed to repeat this with an even larger Global Grant project partnership in the 2013/2014 Rotary year.
