Rotary was involved in the formation of the United Nations.
 
 
Here is an Utube recording of a webinar connecting Rotary and the United Nations.
It is 3 hours long but judicious moving through the presentation is advised.
 
Some facts:
Rotary has a seat in the General Assembly of the United Nations in recognition of the efforts of its membership to foster goodwill and peace across national boundaries. Rotary is the world's largest Non-Government Foundation providing educational and humanitarian aid.
 
We should be so proud of our place - we should let everyone know of our unique position in the UN.

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. Wheel chairs will be donated by Wheelchairs For Kids - Project set up by RC of Scarborough WA.

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.
