Dear Fellow Rotarians,


Our Rotary Foundation has set up the 6 Areas of Focus to encourage us to do projects in the areas needed in our community. Many times one Area of Focus helps and can enter into another.


Last month was Water and Sanitation which also helps prevent diseases in pregnant mothers and children. 


This month is dedicated to MATERNAL AND CHILD HEALTH and having done projects in last month’s theme, and providing clean water, sanitation and hygiene efforts we maximise child nutrition and at the same time we are already working on this theme as well. Each year 6.3 million children under the age of five die from diseases, malnutrition, poor health care and inadequate sanitation. More than 200 million women who would prefer to delay or avoid childbearing lack access to safe and effective contraception. 


Let’s take action this month :


-Supporting or developing programs that provide immunizations

-Promoting good nutrition and also encouraging breastfeeding for most infants

-Supporting or developing programs to provide access and information about contraceptives.

-Supporting training programs for health professionals such as midwives


Rotarians serve their communities and are always ready to help Make a Difference in people’s lives including the little ones and the mothers.
