April is Maternal and Child Health Month
“There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children.”
Nelson Mandela, Former President of South Africa
Three mothers and twenty babies die every five minutes; the majority of these deaths occur in Africa and the Indian subcontinent. Many of these deaths are preventable.
Rotary Australia World Community Service (RAWCS) runs projects throughout much of the developing world and there are a multitude of opportunities for volunteers to get involved in overseas RAWCS projects.
Rotarians make a difference throughout the world.
