Road traffic accidents - how many more people need to die? 

Road traffic accidents (RTA) in developing nations will soon exceed the combined deaths of AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis.  Beyond the deaths are the badly injured and permanently disabled which number at least as many as the deaths. Most of the victims are heads of households and this throws the entire family into poverty, often permanent.’ says, Wend Schaefer an Orthopaedic Surgeon, who is also a member of the Fellowship’s Board. He should know because he has worked in developing countries for many years!

Financial help for your projects

Are you looking for financial support for a health project? We're in a position to make small grants for health projects. Due to increasing membership and limited outgoings, we had built up some cash reserve, which we wanted to use to help our members. A resolution to this effect was adopted unanimously at the Annual Meeting in Toronto. In the meantime, we were delighted to receive a donation from a well wisher of GBP 2,000.00 to support our activities. So, we are excited to offer our members grants upto a maximum of USD500 to support health projects, in which they play an active role.

Rain water harvesting - a low cost option to improve water supply

Many of us involved in projects in developing countries would have come across the problem of water shortage.

Albinos are those without 'colour' i.e. without melanin. Life is hard for albinos throughout Africa, but especially in Tanzania. At best, they face raw prejudice; at worst, they are hunted for their flesh, the results of superstitious beliefs. Now Rotary offers them a helping hand.
