There are many reasons that people join Rotary, but one key thing that brings us together is the wish to help people. Some of the things that happen in our world can seem so devastating that we wonder whether the little things we do can possibly make a difference. Well, our Club is part of an international organisation which means that our individual efforts, when taken together, are a huge force for good. We can and do make a difference.
Sometimes it can feel like we are taking on too much. When that happens, step back and remember that person lying prostrate next to their child who has just died from the preventable disease Polio, or from drinking infected water. Perhaps picture the disabled child with tears in their eyes looking out at a world of which they do not feel part. Then think about how you can make a difference in their lives.
“To have compassion for someone in need is one of the greatest qualities human beings have - doing something to help is another.” - Carl Midgley.
