Reproductive Health in Karen State (Thailand)
The Burma Children Medical Fund (BCMF) was established in 2006 in response to the increasing number of children on the Thai-Burma border who required complex medical treatment that was simply not available. Many thousands of complex surgeries have been provided since. BCMF has also branched out into direct activities in Karen State, including dissemination of Reproduction Health information in schools and communities in jungle regions of the State. This project will train community health workers and provide RH information and services to all relevant persons in the Ler Per Her districts (approx. 15,000), together with providing wheelchairs & training in expanding & maintaining the chairs.

Mama Wimbi Buntings for Independence and Education, DRC
DRC is one of the few countries which does not provide its citizens with ANY free education, even at primary level. Paid employment is in very short supply and is often so underpaid that even teachers who work 6 days a week survive by begging. We plan to establish an export business to enable mothers to support their families using the sewing skills that they already have. We plan to teach local people the skills to manage international marketing via the internet so that the business will become independent of outside support.

Rotary remains committed to fighting polio and responding
to COVID-19
As Rotary members continue the fight against polio, they’re also responding to the COVID-19 health crisis by addressing the urgent needs of the communities it’s affecting worldwide. And now with the development of COVID-19 vaccines, Rotary is ready to use its expertise in distributing polio vaccine and communicating about vaccine efficacy to assist local health authorities in promoting and delivering COVID-19 vaccinations
Learn how Rotary’s experience with global polio immunizations is helping COVID-19 vaccination efforts. To read more click here
Rotary members persevered to eradicate wild polio in WHO's
African region

Despite many challenges, Rotary and our partners have remained committed to polio eradication. As a result, in August 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) was able to certify its African region free of wild poliovirus. Since 1996 — when wild polio paralyzed an estimated 75,000 children across Africa — health workers have given more than 9 billion doses of the oral polio vaccine and helped prevent 1.8 million wild polio cases. Rotary members around the world have contributed nearly $890 million to end polio in Africa. To distribute vaccines, determined Rotary leaders, local officials, and health workers in the region worked together to overcome immense obstacles, such as war and conflict, vaccine skepticism, difficulty reaching remote locations and, at times, weak political support.

Africa has been declared Polio Free.
After many years of hard work by Rotarian the End Polio program, initiated by Australian RIP Clem Renouf,  Nigeria, the last African State with wild Polio has been declared eradicated.
Hello friends of KINI
It has been quite some time since the last Newsletter but things have been so busy here and my hands were full thus have only now been able to get this to you. 
We are needing more sponsors for needy children as we have had to add quite a number for this coming year. With KINI being known far and wide, we have many requests for children to be cared for who are in danger or being taken out of school. Day student fees are as low as $15 per term. Please email me if you have any questions. 
Again thank you for supporting KINI these last 7 years and we wish you a blessed Christmas and very prosperous new year.
