IMMUNISATION DAY 2017
Mike Yates is again making arrangements to enable volunteer Rotarians and family
to take part in the National Immunisation Day (NID) in India on Sunday 29th
January 2017. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
There is still time and spaces
available and the booking deadline has
been extended until 12th December. The Rotarians in India are really looking forward to welcoming visiting Rotarians and will be
very disappointed if there are not sufficient numbers.
is absolutely vital that high immunisation levels are maintained across the
whole of India and the presence of visiting Rotarians at immunisation booths
always increases the immunisation levels as the children come in large numbers
to see them.
who have previously participated in these trips have found the whole experience
inspiring, humbling, exciting, joyous, motivating and eye opening.
The reasons for sending volunteers is threefold
- We demonstrate to our partners in Unicef and WHO that Rotary is not just a fund raising organisation but the world’s biggest service organisation.We give a tremendous boost to local Rotarians who have been manning booths regularly for many years and where undoubtedly fatigue is setting in.
- Most important of all, we get a higher turnout of children in a poor area or Delhi slum when there are these strange foreigners in their bright yellow Rotary shirts.
There is also a personal benefit to the volunteers in knowing that you have prevented a child from this horrible disease and many find they have had a very moving experience.
