Rotary in Motion
Water as an instrument for peace
The Aral Sea in Central Asia was once the fourth largest lake in the world. But water management policies of the past have left it severely depleted. The countries that surround the Aral Sea basin all depend on the same sources for their water. The actions of one impact others, creating conflict. Rotary District 5340 is using a global grant to fund seven scholars from the region to take part in the Water Cooperation and Diplomacy program, where they are learning valuable lessons about water as an instrument for peace. Read a blog post from one of the scholars on Rotary Voices.

The plus in PolioPlus
When we talk about PolioPlus, we know we are eradicating polio, but do we realize how many added benefits the program brings? The “plus” is something else that is provided as a part of the polio eradication campaign. It might be a hand-operated tricycle, access to clean water and additional medical treatment, or providing bed nets or soap. Learn how we are doing so much more than eradicating polio. 
 

Rotary is a volunteer organization with 33,000 clubs in over 200 countries and geographical areas.  It initiates humanitarian projects that address challenges affecting the world today, such as hunger, poverty, and illiteracy.  Rotary club members unite a broad cross-section of business and professional leaders around the world around a common mission:  Service Above Self. These 1.2 million men and women donate their expertise, time, and funds to support local and international project, helping people in need and promoting understanding among cultures.  

Rotary’s flagship program is its effort to protect children against polio. It aims to eradicate the disease from the world.

The members of the ROTARY CLUB OF BETHLEHEM would love to welcome you into our club. Want more info? Contact Gerry Foran (forangf@gmail.com) or - better yet - VISIT our weekly meeting and ask us to tell you more.
