TWO Rotary Club of South Mildura members have returned from an emotional trip to Sri Lanka where they delivered and fitted five prosthetic hands made by local volunteers to landmine victims. 

Lesley and Neville Mitchell spent two weeks in the country helping fit more than 240 hands made by Rotary clubs across Australia. 

They first got involved in the American initiative, taken on by Rotary Australia as the Hands On project, during a Rotary conference they attended two years ago.
