Our personal journey in the fight against malaria
 Our personal journey in the fight against malaria

We will cover our personal journey from the aftermath of the Vietnam War though to the battle against malaria.

We will finish with a message of hope in the form of a malaria vaccine being developed by the Griffith University QLD.  This vaccine is currently at the stage of development where it is being trialed here in Australia on a 30-person sample before moving to further trials and eventually in country vaccination. 

Steve was born in WA and served 20yrs in the Australian Army.

Having lost his daughter to malaria Steve and his wife Dorene have fought a continuous battle to rid the world of that disease, the world’s second greatest killer.

At the age of 70 he took up volunteer work in Laos and Cambodia clearing land mines and unexploded ordinance and the supplying of water, sanitation and poverty alleviation. In 2009 Steve became a director of Mines Victims and Clearance Trust where they became involved in organizing the clearance of unexploded bombs and mines in Laos.  As such Steve laid the ground work for the combined Rotary Clubs “Watering Project” in Xieng Quong Province.  

Under the name of Carroll family Projects they have travelled to Laos  and Cambodia doing poverty alleviation, water supply and sanitation projects on many occasions.

In 2015 Steve organized an Around Australia Motorcycle Ride Against malaria, having lost their daughter to that disease in 1990. The ride raised over $28,000 that was donated to the “Healthy Village” projects in Solomon Islands and Timor Leste.

The Maitland Rotary Club awarded Steve the Paul Harris medal for service above self in 2012.

In 2017, to assist in the development of a malaria vaccine “PlasprotecT”, Steve and Dorene have offered to match any $500. donation to the vaccine project from Distr 9670 clubs, up to a limit of $25,000. To this date they have reached $19,000.
