Do you have any old ties???
Rotary Club of Midland

The Ladies of our Rotarians and Lady-Rotarians
have been quilting madly during the last 6 months
to help the men and women that move to
the St Vincentian House in Woodbridge.
As much as we are looking for fabrics
and wadding we would like to make some special quilts
made out of Men’s Ties.
So now is the time to clean out your Wardrobe
and donate all your old Ties that you will never ever wear again!
Remember if you have not worn it for 1 year you will not
wear it again!!!

Please send the Ties to: Franziska Forrer,
195 Falls Road, Lesmurdie WA 6076
Or call : 0411 727 593 to arrange pick-up!

Last week I posed the question
to see if anybody knew what this Rotary Acronymn was

It is Rotarians For Fighting Aids
Rotarians For Fighting AIDS, Inc. was founded by Marion Bunch
(Rotary Club of Dunwoody, GA, USA),
a Rotarian who lost her child to AIDS in 1993.
With the approval of Rotary International’s Board in 2003,
RFFA became the first Rotarian Action Group.
At the request of PRIP Bhichai Rattakul (Thailand) to “help the victims of AIDS,
especially the children, RFFA launched the first project.
The ANCHOR (Africa Network for Children Orphaned and At Risk)
partnership was created including RFFA, HOPE Worldwide,
The Coca-Cola Africa Foundation and Emory University’s School of Public Health.
In four years, ANCHOR has provided care
and support for 91,000 vulnerable children in Africa
through “Orphan Rescue” and “Kidz’s Clubs.”
In 2008 at the invitation of the United States Government,
Rotarians For Fighting AIDS, Inc. joined American business and entertainment giants
in a bold new initiative directed toward providing a vision of Hope
and behavior change creating an AIDS free world.
This “HIV Free Generation” program’s pilot project launched in December, 2008,
in Nairobi, Kenya with program promoting “cool” behaviors
that prevent the transmission of HIV among youth.
As a precursor to the launch, RFFA and Rotary Clubs
and Districts in Nairobi, Georgia USA and Pennsylvania USA
conducted the largest Medical Mission in Rotary history.
Seventy-two medical, dental and optical professionals
and volunteers treated more than 10,000 children and youth
in one ten-day period at three sites in the slums of Nairobi, Kenya.
In 2009, Rotarians, along with education and health care professionals,
conduct programs assisting HIV/AIDS orphans in seven African countries.

If you want to know more or wish to help here is a link to their website

Congratulations DI.
