The co-founder of OIC: The Cambodia Project, Weh Yeoh, will be presenting his OIC Cambodia Project to the Rotaract Club of Perth on Tuesday, 27th January at around 6pm. OIC Cambodia Project to the Rotaract Club of Perth WPRC members are invited. It would be especially great if the International Committee members are able to attend to learn more about this project and meet with Weh. Specific venue details will be posted on http://rotaractperth.org.au/ Additional information can be seen at: http://vimeo.com/110125246 http://vimeo.com/109899086 https://www.facebook.com/oicthecambodiaproject Charter Club Lunch to be held on Sunday 8 February 2015 11.30am at the Valley View Restaurant 10481 West Swan Road Henley Brook.
