Maternal and Child Health

Rotary International’s focus for this month is Maternal and Child Health. The health and well-being of families and children in particular is vital to achieving our vision of peace and security for all people in this world.

Rotary is working to 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.

As a result of this emphasis, The Rotary Foundation recently announced the award of the most recent Program of Scale Grant, $2 million to prevent cervical cancer in Egypt.

Several opportunities for engagement, training and fellowship with Rotarians from throughout the District are happening soon, hope to see you there!

Have your best week ever in Rotary this week!

Rotary Night at the Ballpark

District 6970 Rotary Night at the Ballpark was a delightful event filled with laughter, camaraderie, and delicious food. The evening began with an overwhelming display of generosity as attendees brought food donations to support Second Harvest Foodbank. The atmosphere was electric as we cheered on the Daytona Tortugas, bonding over our shared love for the game and Rotary. From young to old, fun was had by all. Rotary Night at the Ballpark exemplified the spirit of fellowship and community that Rotary stands for.
