Rotary makes high-quality health care available to vulnerable mothers and children so they can live longer and grow stronger.  It expands access to quality care, so mothers and children everywhere can have the same opportunities for a healthy future.  An estimated 5.9 million children under the age of five die each year because of malnutrition, inadequate health care and poor sanitation – all of which can be prevented. 


In Haiti where maternal and infant mortality is the highest in the world, Rotary provided a fully equipped medical Jeep for midwives and volunteers to reach mothers and children in remote areas.


In Chennai, India, Rotarians provided a mobile cancer screening unit and awareness training where there is a high mortality rate of women with breast and cervical cancer due to late diagnosis.


And in Nigeria, Rotarians launched a three million dollar, five-year pilot program to save lives of mothers and children during home deliveries, and since 2005 they have repaired 1,500 obstetric fistulas restoring dignity and hope to vulnerable mothers. 


Your contribution to TRF enables this to happen – Thank you.
