Rotary makes amazing things happen, like:

Mobile prenatal clinics

Haiti has the highest maternal and infant mortality rate of any country in the western hemisphere. Rotary provided a fully equipped medical Jeep to volunteers and midwives to reach mothers and children in remote areas.

Cancer screening

Rotarians provided a mobile cancer screening unit and awareness training around Chennai, India, where there is a high mortality rate of women with breast and cervical cancer due to late diagnosis.

Preventing injuries and deaths

Rotary members launched a $3 million, five-year pilot to save lives of mothers and children during home deliveries in Nigeria. Since 2005, they’ve also repaired 1,500 obstetric fistulas — 500 more than their initial goal — restoring dignity and hope to vulnerable mothers.

 
HEADLINES
 
  

ROTARY CLUB OF GODERICH CANCELS MEETINGS DUE TO COVID -19  

In consultation your Board of Directors have made the decision to suspend our regular Rotary Club Meetings. 

As you all know, the World is grappling with the COVID 19 pandemic and trying to mitigate the spread as much as possible. We did not make this decision lightly but the health and safety of our members and their families is our top priority.

We will also be reviewing our community-based programs and making decisions as required whether to proceed or suspend them. We will continue to communicate with our Members and the community through email, social media and our website.

While we are saddened that we will not be gathering as a Club, we are confident that we are making the right decision for all concerned. 

Please stay safe and healthy, and remember WASH YOUR HANDS!!
