ROTARIANS JOINING HANDS WITH OTHER LIKE MINDED PEOPLE
Many Rotarians invest countless hours of service to offer hope to those in need.
Rotarians join hands with other like-minded people to offer hope
Rotarians reach out to people in different ways. Rotary organisation provides for its members and others huge opportunities to engage in meaningful voluntary activities. Rotarians also offer their services to other like-minded groups.
Our Fellowship members are involved in countless projects which offer much needed help to people. Here are a few examples:
India’s Lifeline express was launched in 1991 to help disabled people in rural India access medical services wherever they be.
Upto December 2010, over 600,000 disabled poor in rural India have so far benefited from the remarkable train, and other countries have come forward to start their Lifeline Express on which major surgeries have been performed to restore movement, hearing, sight and correction of clefts with the help of the donated skills and services of over 80,000 surgeons, to make this dream possible.
We want to congratulate all Rotarians involved in this amazing project.
