Rotary Health Mission & Menstrual Care Project: Bridging Healthcare Gaps Together

Project Description:

In response to critical community needs, the Rotary Health Mission project is a dedicated initiative addressing key health challenges in underserved communities. Our comprehensive approach focuses on four major areas:

1.Lack of Access to Basic Healthcare Services: We aim to provide preventive care, treat common illnesses, and support maternal and child health to reduce preventable deaths.

2.Malnutrition and Hunger: Combatting widespread malnutrition, our project strives to alleviate issues such as stunting, anemia, and susceptibility to infection by ensuring access to nutritional support.

3.Infectious Diseases: Tackling the threat of infectious diseases through initiatives that enhance access to clean water, sanitation, and promote good hygiene practices.

4.Mental Health Stigma: Breaking down barriers, we work to address mental health issues, including depression, anxiety, and suicide, often stigmatized and neglected in underserved communities.

Project Team Identification of Needs:

Our project team conducted a thorough community needs assessment, engaging key stakeholders, consulting with health officials, reviewing existing programs, and actively involving community members. This ensured a context-specific and responsive approach to the identified needs.

Community Involvement:

Members of the benefiting community actively contribute to the project by participating in consultations, leading needs assessments, serving on community health committees, and engaging in participatory design workshops. Their input ensures the project is tailored to the community's unique needs.

Utilization of Project Funds:

Funds raised will be allocated for various purposes, including medical supplies, specialist referrals, financial support for treatment, monitoring equipment, fortified foods, testing kits, counseling services, and health education workshops.

Club Members' Involvement:

Our Rotary club members are integral to the project's success. They participate in needs assessments, contribute to planning, assist in fundraising efforts, and play active roles during the implementation phase. Whether volunteering at medical camps, facilitating health screenings, or serving on community health committees, club members are committed to making a positive impact.

Project Timeline:

The Rotary Health Mission project is set to unfold over a period of 2 months, aiming to efficiently and effectively address the identified health needs of the community.

Join us in this meaningful endeavor! Together, we can create a healthier, more resilient community. Your support makes a lasting impact on lives. #RotaryHealthMission #CommunityHealth #MakeADifference 🌍💙

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
