2020 Michael Chin Humanitarian Award
Dr. Michael Chin, a long serving General Practitioner in the Karrinyup area, was a charter member of the Rotary Club of Karrinyup serving the Club in various roles and was the first member of our Club to be named a Paul Harris Fellow. He passed away in 1998. The Michael Chin Humanitarian Award was created in 2000 to honour outstanding individuals, who serve the community and those in need, for their humanitarian and volunteer activities. Recipients are people whose daily dedication and caregiving epitomises the highest standard of quality and personal commitment.
This year’s recipient is Glenice Munro, a volunteer worker at Glengarry Private Hospital and has been the coordinator there for six years. She provides support and companionship to both patients and staff.
She admirably fits the awards’ criteria of outstanding, ongoing humanitarian effort within our community.
Glenice has been responsible for setting up, and running, the Mothers’ Day stall at Glengarry Hospital to not only raise funds but to raise the spirits of the patients and staff. These funds have been mainly directed to a community based disability service called KIRA. This has been responsible for raising many thousands of dollars.
Along with her colleagues, Glenice has also spread good cheer at local Nursing Homes and Retirement Villages. Through all these activities and many years of service she has retained a peaceful attitude to her role.
Glenice is truly a well deserved recipient of the Michael Chin Humanitarian Award.
