Dr Nikki Allorto completed her general surgical training at the Nelson Mandela school of medicine, University of Kwa Zulu Natal and was admitted to the College of Surgeons of South Africa in 2010. She was awarded the traveling fellowship from the Association of Surgeons of South Africa and spent 3 months at Sydney's Concord General Repatriation Hospital under the Burn Unit Director Peter Maitz. She has subsequently completed a 2 year fellowship in Intensive Care. Her masters degree was done on costing of burn care in a resource scarce setting.

 

Her passion for burn injured patients was ignited during her surgery training years and she has been involved with the South African Burn Society for a number of years and is now the society's President. She has directed many Emergency Management of Severe Burns courses around South Africa and in Kenya. She has published in the field of burns in international peer reviewed journals and presented at international congresses. She is involved in initiation of a Burn Association for the Southern African Developing Community.

 

Revolutionizing burn care in Southern Africa is her life career goal. Towards achieving this vision she has founded the Burn Care Trust as a platform for raising awareness and funding for change in the field of burns.

 

 
 
 
 

 
 
 

 

 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
 

 Raising awareness, ensuring opportunity

Every 20 minutes a child is diagnosed with autism. There is no cure for this complex developmental disability that affects 1 in 150 people - but there is effective treatment.  Since 2001 Bermuda Autism Support & Education (BASE) has been dedicated to providing autism-related information, referral, advocacy, training, and support to families, professionals, and community members.  By increasing public awareness of autism, we help to ensure that individuals on the autism spectrum are given opportunities and resources to achieve their full potential.

 
 
 

 The mission statement of BEST (Bermuda Environmental Sustainability Taskforce)  is:

“To preserve and enhance the quality of life in Bermuda for present and future generations by advocating for sustainable management and development of the physical, social and economic environments.”

 
 
 

Over the past 18 months BEN has been laying the groundwork for businesses to make a more meaningful contribution to education. 

Phase 1 is capacity building and networking with parents to create a pool of resources. 

Phase 2 is building relationships with principals at government schools.   BEN does not provide financial donations or scholarships, what BEN can offer is a framework of services around three connected challenges:

        how to help schools connect with a range of high quality experiential learning  activities;

         how to provide better, more tailored Career guidance to enable young people to make better choices about their learning and employment.

         how to help schools create systems for better and earlier intervention for young people;

 

 
 
 

Business:  Pres. Tee welcomed PP Jeff noting that it was PP Jeff Sousa who had sponsored him to the club. 

  He then invited Patrice Horner and Megan Nesbitt along with PP Kirk as “Deputy” Sponsor in lieu of PP Jim. to join him and duly inducted Rtn Patrice and Rtn Megan into the HRC These were followed by Denise James and Terica Esposito who were sponsored by Pres Tee Finally but by no means last Major Shawn Critch who has been a waiting an embarrassingly long time to officially join us, with sponsor AG Keith.

  Each of our new members told us a little of their background and were then officially congratulated by Pres Tee, IPP Barrett and AG Keith.  Rtn Shawn forgoing the kisses from the “dynamic” trio and accepting a congratulatory hug!

 
 
 

The Rotary Foundation:  PP Keith has been asking members all year to support the $100 EREY for the Foundation but where does it go and what does your contribution do?

 
 
 

 Annual Programs Fund (Every Rotarian, Every Year)

The mission of the Annual Programs Fund mirrors that of The Rotary Foundation: to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty.

Intense summer program gives Israeli and Palestinian teens new perspectives
Students from Israel and Palestine sat together at a local art studio in Encinitas, California, USA, one day last summer, drawing portraits of one another and learning how to live in peace. Kelly Mellos, an organizer of the project from the Rotary Club of Encinitas Coastal, says that drawing someone who is sitting so close helps break down social barriers between the young people. "They see how many similarities there are between them," she says. "And they begin to understand we are all just people. There is a respect and trust that builds." The students were participating in a program run by...

President-elect urges Rotary members to ‘Be a Gift to the World’
Using their talents, expertise, and leadership, Rotary members worldwide are asked to be gifts to the world this upcoming 2015-16 Rotary year. Rotary International President-elect K.R. "Ravi" Ravindran called Sunday's address to incoming district governors the "most significant moment of my life." "All of you have been given so many gifts. And you have now been given this great gift: one year to take all your talents, all your gifts, everything that you are and can become -- and Be a Gift to the World," said Ravindran, revealing his presidential theme at the annual five-day training meeting...
Man in iron lung discovers Rotary
One might think a man living with polio in an iron lung would know about Rotary. But it wasn't until Paul Alexander had a business meeting with a member in Duncanville, Texas, earlier this year that he learned Rotary fights to eradicate the very disease that left him almost completely paralyzed. "I was completely blown away by the idea. For all these years, I didn't know the work they were doing," says Alexander, a practicing attorney in Dallas. "It's such a perfect fit for me." Alexander contracted polio during a major U.S. outbreak of the disease in the late 1950s when he was six years old...
Alumni recognized for expanding mental health services and supporting Rotary’s work
Dr. Geetha Jayaram has dedicated her life to helping people in her native India and the United States overcome the torment of severe depression, bipolar disorder, panic attacks, and other mental illnesses. Jayaram is a psychiatrist and associate professor at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and the Armstrong Institute for Patient Safety and Quality. Her work expanding access to mental health services is much needed. Depression affects at least 350 million people and is the leading cause of disability worldwide, according to the World Health Organization. "In India, there is no mental...
