The Scope and Scale of Rotary Volunteering

A study released in December 2019 by the Johns Hopkins Centre, Baltimore, USA
found that Rotary give an estimated annual contribution of 47 million volunteer hours,
equivalent almost to 27,000 full-time paid workers,
and saving US$850 million in service costs, each year

50% of volunteer hours are contributed by Rotary members age 56 years and over
and women accounted for 26% of volunteer hours

Latin America volunteers give the most at 6.4 hours/volunteer/month,
Middle East 6.2 hours, Europe 4.7 hours and USA and Canada 3.7 hours

Half of all volunteer hours are devoted to health, education and social assistance
and 20% to Culture, Community and Economic Development, and the Environment

Rotary's 'monumental contribution' to ending polio celebrated in PMQs

Rotary's "monumental contribution" to global efforts to eradicate polio
was celebrated in the House of Commons at Prime Minister's Questions 30th September 2020*

MP Jane Hunt Celebrating Rotary's 'monumental contribution' to eradicating Polio

Rotary members, volunteers and supporters around the world
have raised over $2 billion in the global fight to eradicate the disease
which has helped to immunise and protect over 2.5 billion children around the world

The address was raised by Loughborough MP Jane Hunt
who recognised the contribution of Loughborough Beacon Rotary
and of all Rotarians around the world

Prime Minster Boris Johnson described it as
"a fine example of the philanthropy and spirit of the British people"

Haddenham Rotary have actively supported the global 'End Polio Now'
initiative since its inception and continue to do so

Following the news earlier this year
that the WHO's Africa region is now wild polio-free
just two countries, Afghanistan and Pakistan, remain polio-endemic

After over three decades of work and collaboration
ending polio forever remains Rotary's number one humanitarian goal

Help us protect more children and end polio, by donating here:

Haddenham Rotary install personal TV system to help improve patient welfare


The 12 bed renal dialysis unit at Stoke Mandeville Hospital shared 5 televisions
and the choice of a channel to watch was something of a lottery

Now, every bed has it's own TV and DVD machine, remote control and headphones
so each patient can please themselves about what to watch

Six Counties Kidney Patients Association (SCKPA) are a major donor to the project

In 2018, the PDU urgent and emergency care facility

2020 Haddenham Rotary President Tim Mahoney receives thanks
for supporting the PDU, from Sara, the PDU Play Leader


Photo: Rotarian President Tim Mahoney

"On behalf of all the staff, children and parents I want to thank you
so much for the brand new televisions which have been installed
in the PDU, and for the Kindles too

The difference it makes to a frightened young child is incredible
and makes their stay with us a little easier. I spent half an hour
with a little 6 year old last week playing on the Kindle before his MRI scan
he was calm and relaxed which is exactly how we needed him to be

We are all so grateful for your kindness and generosity"
Sarah – PDU Play Leader
