We are - people of action
Watch out for a sea of red at the Britomart Station on Friday, October 23rd. It is the second year in succession that Rotary in Auckland is organising a `Ride a train to enable others to walk’ event. 
 
Just when the world is fighting a deadly battle against Coronavirus, the Rotary initiative of eradicating wild poliovirus from Africa recently made international headlines.  
 
Immunizing more than 2.4 billion children in 122 countries since the last 30 years is an unimaginable feat, though sadly, the wild poliovirus still paralyses children in Afghanistan and Pakistan. As long as polio exists anywhere, it remains a threat everywhere. 
 
It’s the reason why Rotary in New Zealand has been going hard, to wipe out the virus from the face of this earth. 
The Rotary Club of Tawara have announced that their first major aid project, the Kiribati Sanitation Project, has been successful in its Rotary Global Grant (US$100,000+) with partnering clubs of Rotary Club of Richfield and the Rotary Club of Otahuhu.
 
Thanks to this project the following three Betio communities will be recipients of a high standard sanitation build, each comprising of 5 toilets and 2 shower facilities:
  • Ueen te Uri Community.
  • Ueen te Tangira Community.
  • Uaan Kunkun Community.
The success of this application is due to the joint efforts of a wide range of individuals and organisations whose commitment to combating open defecation by helping families in communities with a dignified solution. Over 110 households and over 500 individuals will directly benefit from this sanitation project to provide happier and healthier solutions for the people of the three communities.
Rotaract Club (Auckland City) will be running part of the Auckland Marathon on Sunday 1 November to support and raise awareness of our Rotary project of choice, Rotary Give Every Child A Future (GECAF).
 
GECAF has partnered with UNICEF and aims to vaccinate and protect 100,000 children from rotavirus, pneumococcal disease, and cervical cancer, across nine Pacific Island Countries.
 
A Give-a-Little page has been created to accept your support – note that every $50 you donate vaccinates one child.   Also, please help us by sharing the great news of this project among your friends and contacts as the Pacific community is an integral part of our New Zealand community and a project like GECAF is something that enables everyone to help in a very worthwhile  way.  Go HERE to donate.  Click on the header to open the story and use the social media bar to share this good-news story among your friends.
