Rotary Water-Survival Box Update 6 - 2011-2012 - Horn Of Africa And The Philippines

Received 13th August 2011 -

For the past four weeks we have been on standby to send Water-Survival Boxes to help with water-purification in the refugee camps in the Dadaab region of Kenya. However, serious difficulties in arranging a safe and secure route along the 300 mile journey from Nairobi, as well as a controlled environment for distribution to families most in need, meant we have had to wait for confirmation that such arrangements were in place.

Secretaries Newsletter for July 2011

Dear Club Secretary,

This is the first of what, I hope, will be a short regular newsletter to keep you informed of key dates, activities and meetings principally in the District but covering other Rotary events where considered appropriate. Don’t forget that if your Club has an activity to publicise the District Governor will be pleased to include details in his monthly newsletter.

Rotary Volunteers project update

Rotary volunteers at work

Due to extreme economic pressures, the Rotary Foundation was forced to cut the Volunteer Service Grant funds, March 2009 bringing many volunteer programmes to a grinding halt. We were desperate that the Kilimambogo Dental Clinic, Kenya, would not become one of these programmes doomed to fail because volunteers could not afford to travel and give a month’s service to this successful project.
