Governor's Monthly Letter (GML)
Dear Fellow Rotarians,
The Rotary International believes that good health care is everyone’s right. Hence, the month of December is dedicated to Disease Prevention and Treatment. The overall thrust is to educate and equip communities to stop the spread of life-threatening diseases.
Our members put forth concerted efforts to combat diseases like malaria, HIV/AIDS, Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, HIV/AIDS and polio. These diseases are crippling societies, ending dreams, breaking up families, orphaning children and leads to suffering for many people. The severity of the problem is in varying degrees depending on the area and fighting these is no easy feat. Needless to say, much more needs to be done and it is important to further strengthen the campaign.
In our District 3850, I truly appreciate the efforts of our clubs to conduct blood donation drive, pursue medical missions, provide training and medical equipment, conduct symposium on health and wellness, help improve patient care, provide healthcare access and even conduct school roadshows to teach kids proper handwashing, dental health and overall hygiene. All of these will lead us to a healthier world.
