Enhance Work Experience
National RAM Secretary - vacancy
Call for Expressions of Interest
Rotarians Against Malaria (RAM) is a national initiative established in 1997 to help end malaria in our partner countries (Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, Timor Leste and West Timor). We save lives by providing support to our partners to prevent malaria infections.
A key national position within RAM is now available. We wish to invite all Rotarians who would like a leadership role as the National Secretary for RAM and may be suitable candidates to email an “Expression of Interest” for the position.
One more wild polio case in Pakistan - Support End Polio Now
RI Past Director Robert Hall has just informed me we have found another small child with the wild polio virus in North Waziristan, Pakistan!
The child has the typical acute flaccid Paralysis.
As with the case last week, this terrible news further inspires us to continue our fight on behalf of the children of the world - and increase our fund raising efforts as we close in on the end of the 2021/22 Rotary year.
Vaccination campaigns are being intensified and all members of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative are focused on the challenge of the task ahead.
