Fight against diseases

We are determined to rid the world of polio and equip communities to stop the transmission of other diseases.

We sensitize and equip communities to contain the spread of deadly diseases like polio, HIV / AIDS and malaria. Our goal is to improve and expand access to free or low-cost health care in developing regions.

Safe water supply

Rotarians don't dig wells and shut down a project. We undertake sustainable projects that bring safe water, sanitation and hygiene to more people every day.

We support local initiatives through which more people have access to safe water, sanitation and hygiene. Our purpose is not simply to build wells but to share our experiences with community leaders and teachers so that our projects are sustainable.

Maternal and child health

We improve access to quality health care, sanitation, education and economic opportunities so that mothers and their children can enjoy a better life.

Annually around six million children under the age of five die from malnutrition, lack of health care and unsanitary sanitation. By expanding access to better health services, mothers and children live healthy and strong.
