Rotary makes high-quality health care available to vulnerable 
mothers and children so they can live longer and grow stronger

We expand access to quality care,
 so mothers and children everywhere can have the same opportunities
 for a healthy future.
 An estimated 5.9 million children under the age of five die each year
 because of malnutrition, inadequate health care, and poor sanitation 
— all of which can be prevented.

How Rotary makes help happen

Rotary provides education, immunizations, birth kits, 
and mobile health clinics.
 Women are taught how to prevent mother-to-infant HIV transmission, 
how to breast-feed, and how to protect themselves
 and their children from disease.
Our impact on the lives of mothers and children

The Rotary Foundation reaches mothers and children
 in need by giving communities the help and training 
they need to take control of their own maternal and infant health care.

Rotary makes amazing things happen, like:
Mobile prenatal clinics

Haiti has the highest maternal and infant mortality rate
 of any country in the western hemisphere.
 Rotary provided a fully equipped medical Jeep to volunteers
 and midwives to reach mothers and children in remote areas.

Cancer screening

Rotarians provided a mobile cancer screening unit 
and awareness trainings around Chennai, India,
 where there is a high mortality rate of women with 
breast and cervical cancer due to late diagnosis.

Preventing injuries and deaths

Rotary members launched a $3 million, five-year pilot 
to save lives of mothers and children during home deliveries in Nigeria.
 Since 2005, they’ve also repaired 1,500 obstetric fistulas 
— 500 more than their initial goal —
 restoring dignity and hope to vulnerable mothers.

Help us win a Webby Award has been nominated by the 
Academy of Digital Arts and Science for two Webby Awards,
 the leading international honor for excellence on the internet.
 We are competing with four others in the association category
 for both a Webby Award, selected by the academy, 
and a Webby People's Voice Award, chosen by public vote.
 Help us win the People's Voice Award by
voting between now and 19 April.

Rotary Club of Wyalkatchem

The highlight of conference weekend has to be our club being awarded
 the Best Attendance at the conference,
 with the highest percentage of club members attending.
 With 8 of our 11 members attending, it was close,
 but we managed to take home the trophy! 
The trophy isn’t just a chance to brag about what a great club we are,
 though that is true, but a testament to our members’
 dedication and commitment to the Rotary message.
 Even our District Governor Lindsay Dry commented
 on what an inspiration our club is to Rotary clubs
 in the district, changing from a club on the brink
 to a club going from strength to strength

Rotary Club of Bunbury Leshenault

We were invited by our local member of parliament and fellow Rotarian
 Don Punch MLA to hold our lunchtime meeting at Parliament House in West Perth 
We were shown around the impressive building by Michael Loney
 (uncle of my friend Georgia Loney!)
 who gave us excellent insight into not only the workings of parliament today 
but some interesting tidbits into the history of the "Washminster"
 (which is an interesting combination of the "Wash"-ington system
 and the West-"minster" systrem,
 but closer to how parliament operates in Canada in real life!)
 system of parliament as it operates in WA.

We stayed for a bit of question time, which was also fascinating, fun and 
... well, question time!
 Photographs inside Parliament House are not allowed,
 except in front of this mural

Monday night was a special night at the Rotary Club of Attadale. 
Those present were very fortunate to listen to the Guest Speaker Torie Robinson.
 Torie is from the UK, a leading international public speaker, 
writer, influencer, entrepreneur, world traveller and lecturer.
 Torie has spoken in the UK Parliament and featured in multiple publications.
 She has had to overcome personal, professional and public adversities 
throughout her journey living with epilepsy

The Club was also privileged to have Emma Buitendag,
 CEO of Epilepsy WA attend the meeting, 
plus three visitors who have personal involvement with epilepsy.
The Club will hopefully find ways to assist Epilepsy WA 
in some small ways in the future.

Meet our member Judy who has been a Rotarian since 2004
. Judy tells us - "After living in the country for a number of years
 where I was active in the community, 
I found a new community at#RotaryClubofWesternEndeavour.
 I love the camaraderie in our club and even though we are a relatively small club,
 am proud of the projects we do in our local, national and international communities
. My favourite projects are hands on, such as helping with busy bees at Rosalie Primary school,
 tree-planting with our country Rotarians at Quairading
 or providing new PJs for kids going into refuges or foster care."
