St. Andrew Rotary makes new addition to Curlin Johnson Basic School

20181112_035305.jpg

The St. Andrew Rotary Club donated two white boards to a classroom at Curlin Johnson Basic School at 1 Saunders Avenue, Kingston about two weeks ago. They were well received.

However small, projects like these have a huge impact on the recipients and these projects inspire others to make an impact and change as well.

Kudos to the St. Andrew Rotary Club for their charitable services. Our Children are our Future.

It’s World Polio Day! Help Eradicate Polio from the 3 Countries left with it in the World

It’s World Polio Day. In 1988, the Polio virus was endemic to 125 countries.
Today, only 3 countries in the world have never stopped the transmission of Polio- PakistanAfghanistan and    Nigeria. Despite the progress achieved since 1988, as long as a single child remains infected with Poliovirus, children in all countries are at risk of contracting the disease.

According to CDC Global Health, Polio, or poliomyelitis, is a crippling and potentially deadly infectious disease. It is caused by the poliovirus. The virus spreads from person to person and can invade an infected person’s brain and spinal cord, causing paralysis, where persons cannot move parts of the body.

There is NO cure for Polio, but vaccines can protect a child for life.

The ruins left of a family’s home in Jamaica after a fire destroyed it recently.

Last Tuesday,  October 16 was World Food Day and Rotary had a goal to collect 2 tonnes of food.

The Rotaract Club of May Pen partnered with the Rotaract Club of Ibicarai, Brazil (@rotaractibi) and donated food items, weighing ~28kg to a mother and her 5 children who recently lost their home and possessions to a fire.
