Jazzar – February 4, 2009 – Metn RC Presentation – Lebanon - 44 Rotary’s Approach Rotary clubs and districts have a long history of working with government agencies, nongovernmental organizations, and local community leaders to increase awareness and undertake projects that address population issues. Many of these community service projects seek sustainable solutions to the challenges of overpopulation. Slide 45: 8 MDGs and Rotary International – by Michel P. Jazzar – February 4, 2009 – Metn RC Presentation – Lebanon - 45 Through their community projects, many Rotary clubs and districts are addressing population issues by: • Respecting the personal, cultural, and religious values of community members • Increasing access to quality family health care • Improving maternal health and reducing child mortality • Promoting gender equality and empowering women • Enabling individuals to make informed and responsible decisions about family planning issues • Developing job skills and employment opportunities Sample Rotary Projects : 8 MDGs and Rotary International – by Michel P.

The project provided nutritional supplements, such as protein powders and fruits, and monthly medical exams. As a result of the project, none of the children died, and 90 had completely recovered from malnourishment by the project’s completion. Romania Rotary clubs worked with Heifer International to create a project called Farmers Feed the Children. Local animals are given to farmers, who, in turn, give the first female offspring of those animals to other farmers. Some of the bounty-milk from the cows, eggs from the chickens- goes to children in local hospitals, schools and orphanages. Slide 47: 8 MDGs and Rotary International – by Michel P.

People with HIV/AIDS are seven times more likely to develop tuberculosis. In 2000, 17 million people in Africa were affected with both HIV and tuberculosis simultaneously. (Continued) Slide 52: Polio is Rotary’s Success The United Nations agencies, UNICEF and the World Health Organization (WHO) plus the US Government’s Center for Disease Control all say Rotary’s Polio Campaign is the model for eliminating the evils which plague our world. Let’s remember that the polio effort started as a club and district project in the Philippines. The Rotary Water and Sanitation effort has grown to a international scope with a Rotary representative welcomed at UN and international events. Let’s look at the growth of the polio effort since it is the classic model. 5 years strategic plan 2009-2013 : 8 MDGs and Rotary International – by Michel P.

Slide 55: 8 MDGs and Rotary International – by Michel P. Jazzar – February 4, 2009 – Metn RC Presentation – Lebanon - 55 To improve the overall health and well-being of the citizens in their communities, many Rotary clubs plan service projects that: • Increase public access to safe and affordable health care • Reduce child mortality and improve maternal health by providing essential care for pregnant women, new mothers, children, and families • Improve community sanitation facilities and public access to safe drinking water • Prevent, treat, and raise awareness about critical community health concerns such as HIV/AIDS, malaria, polio, diabetes, alcohol and drug abuse, avoidable blindness, and obesity • Support the elderly by helping them maintain their independence and involving them in community activities Sample Rotary Projects : 8 MDGs and Rotary International – by Michel P.

The club will be testing children throughout the province of Quezon and providing medical treatment to those infected. A doctor in the club will be working with the Municipal Physician and personnel of the Municipal Health Office to test and treat the children. Ghana Through a joint service project between Rotarians in New York and Ghana, US$100,000 worth of insecticide-treated mosquito nets were distributed for children and pregnant women to protect them from malaria. An ongoing relationship led Rotarians to furnish the maternity and pediatric wards of an Accra hospital with needed medical equipment. Slide 57: 8 MDGs and Rotary International – by Michel P.

Over the last 100 years, Rotarians have pursued thousands of environmental projects, from building parks and conservation areas to starting community recycling programs. Slide 63: 8 MDGs and Rotary International – by Michel P.
