Saving Mothers and Children

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.


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.


In the mountains of Poland, 26 children traumatized by violence get a chance to be kids again at Rotary camp where psychologists mix escape and therapy.


Rotary programs improve women’s access to skilled health personnel: doctors, nurses, midwives, or community health care workers.


Rotary members distribute clean birth kits and train health workers in safe delivery of babies.


Rotary members teach mothers how to breast-feed, promote immunizations and regular checkups, and distribute insecticide-treated bed nets.


Through the use of technology, doctors are bringing health care to women and children living in rural Nigeria.


Clubs in Japan and Brazil used a Rotary Foundation global grant to equip a hospital with lifesaving neonatal equipment.

Rotary Quotes

1993-94 Robert Barth (beverage industry), Rotary Club of Aarau, Switzerland.
Rotary vision: That all Rotarians Believe in What You Do — Do What You Believe In.
“If we want to see another century of Rotary, we must make Rotary attractive to young people. Many young people share our beliefs. To get them involved in Rotary, we must concentrate on activities that capture their attention, so they are willing to make a commitment. It is not the responsibility of young people to come to our clubs. It is ours to invite them.”
 — Address to 1994 Rotary Convention, Taipei, Taiwan

From Lauren Wolter’s Facebook

A little late, but here are some glimpses into the amazing week I had in Rio. After meeting all the exchange students on the 6th of March, we left for the 14 odd hour drive to Rio. Finally arriving with very little sleep, early in the morning, we explored Copacabana beach as well as some look out points of Rio and Christ The Redeemer. The rest of the week included a visit to Christ, a city tour of Rio; visiting Escadaria Selaron, Niterói, and Pão de Açúcar. We were also lucky enough to watch the Parade of Champions for Carnaval, visit Paraty for a boat day and even go scuba diving. I feel so lucky to have visited all these amazing places, with some really amazing people; 23 exchange students from around the world, plus Alonso and our awesome bus drivers. For more looks into this week, you can watch these two videos by Kieryn and Zach.
