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!
'Fellowship and action'
One of our strengths is that we combine ‘fellowship with action’. This so impressed a UK Rotarian last year that he donated £2,000 to support our humanitarian projects. We invited applications for ‘mini grants’ of upto a maximum of $500 and have so far awarded 3 such grants. Although the grant is small, we are delighted that it is assisting Rotarians to make a difference to other people’s lives.
