Raj Koyes President 2019/2020 The President writes 


President Raj says: I'm a great believer in partnerships. Rotary's strength is in its global network, working together to achieve common goals with worldwide projects promoting health and help giving to the needy. I am convinced that it is just as relevant at local level as it is globally. With this in mind I am asking the club to help me in building a better relationship with other clubs, including Luton Someries and Luton Rotary clubs, in an effort to use our combined strength to carry out fundraising and other events. Paul Harris started Rotary more than 100 years ago to help the needy in his local community. While our emphasis has been on projects overseas, which are to be applauded, we must make a greater effort to carry out more work in the local community and follow in Paul Harris's footsteps. My aim is to support local charity events in addition to our own efforts, and in so doing put Rotary's name out in the local community. Apart from the good generated by our own work, it may act as a catalyst to promote membership. Improving the speaker programme, with better support by members adhering to club policy of providing interesting people, would encourage us to invite guests to the club who may ultimately join us. I have set myself a goal to raise £10,000 for charity in the coming year which our club will be supporting. I appreciate that some of these aims will just be dreams if club members do not join in with a positive approach by setting personal goals. Without doubt, fellowship will be an important part to regenerate our club's outlook by having fun and building on friendships. I am asking our fellowship chairman to arrange club events, not just dinners, but low-cost entertainment such as buffets and barbecues, to achieve this end. I hope you all enjoy this Rotary year, and you have my good wishes for good health and happiness for you and your families-Raj

Vocational Training Team visits Kampala

The Luton North Rotary Foundation Global Grant Project is in two parts

  1) Vocational Training Team (VTT) at the Kisenyi Health Centre Kampala, Uganda,     implemented by the Rotary Club of Luton North UK, International Partner, and the Rotary Club of Sunrise, Kampala Uganda, Host Partner. The VTT will provide a comprehensive training programme for local Primary Ear and Hearing Health Care professionals

    2) Humanitarian Project to Improve healthcare for the children by using more up to date and sophisticated equipment, including Visual Reinforced Audiometry (VRA). This will allow the introduction of a screening programme for newborn infants not presently available anywhere in Uganda. A major breakthrough for the country.

3)    Beneficiaries - Underprivileged children 0 to 16 living the Kampala area of Uganda. (Estimated 10 -15,000). Once the new equipment is installed children elsewhere in Uganda will benefit as they will be brought to Kisenyi Clinic for treatment.

Dr Paul Choudhury VTT Team Leader reports -The first week went brilliantly, with Elhaam Hashim, our senior paediatric audiologist from Barts Health NHS Trust, talking about the anatomy and physiology of #ears. I spent some time covering audiology treatments on infections and diseases, a big problem in Uganda, where sanitary standards are low.

And we have many happy mothers like Aisha, when they hear that their babies have perfect hearing

THE FIRST VRA SYSTEM IN UGANDA

In week two, a Monumental step forward  in audiology with the first ever Visual Reinforcement Audiometry system complete in Uganda in our free clinicNot much time for celebration straight into training on the VAR System with our second seniou Audiologist, Pam Leyton joining us from the UK this week VRA is  a key behaiouraly test for young children it is central to the completion of the diagnostic progess for those hearing impairedinfants idebtified by newborn screening.
