In partnership with Department of health and other Corporate sponsors, Rotary annually arrange for the health screening and testing of individuals from underserved communities who do not have access to basic medical services.
Our club, along with other Rotary clubs, establish and manage temporary medical centres close to the targeted communities over a 3 day period in October. Donors are needed to assist with the costs for transport to and from these centres and basic food supplies for the centres.
GLOBAL HANDWASHING PARTNERSHIP
Included in the Rotary Family Health Days is the project known as the “Global Handwashing Partnership” which is highlighted annually through Global Handwashing day on 15th October which aims at promoting healthy living and the prevention of disease through the habit of handwashing with soap.

The Global Handwashing Partnership is a coalition that brings together the expertise, experience, ideas, resources, and reach of the public and private sectors around the world to promote handwashing with soap. We recognize hygiene as a pillar of international development and health as an easy, effective, and affordable “do-it-yourself vaccine” that prevents infections and saves lives. More Information >
We help practitioners harness the latest research and thinking about handwashing and behavior change by sharing information about key topics in handwashing, developing education modules, hosting webinars and publishing quarterly handwashing research summaries. Start Learning >
