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.

Rotary member takes fundraising to new heights -- the summit of Mount Everest
Despite his longstanding interest in polio eradication, polio was not on Joe Pratt's mind as he prepared for a mid-April 2012 climb of Mount Everest, the highest mountain on earth. But that changed in late 2011, when the resident of Nottingham, New Hampshire, USA, participated in a polio immunization project in Pakistan with fellow Rotary member Steve Puderbaugh. Moved by the efforts of the Pakistanis to battle the crippling disease, and by the vulnerability of the young victims, Pratt reset the focus of his climbing adventure. Pakistan is one of three countries where polio has never been...
San Francisco club reveals formula for growth and retention of members
Members of the Rotary Club of San Francisco Evening meet at a wine bar after work, share a social outing, and promote all their activities on social media like Meetup and Facebook. As the first evening club in the city, it has attracted many young professionals from Silicon Valley tech firms whose work schedules keep them from joining a more traditional club that meets for breakfast or lunch. But more than that, the evening format has helped the club grow by 30 percent since it received its charter in mid-2013. Danielle Lallement, who was its charter president, says the club has been...
Colorado joins Kosovo club to restore sanitation in blighted local schools
Blighted schools in the mountain city of Peja in western Kosovo are a reminder of the ethnic strife and war that ravaged this area in the 1990s. To restore ruined sanitation facilities in some of those schools, local Rotary members recently partnered with their counterparts from Colorado, USA. Though residents have been slowly rebuilding the city's infrastructure after years of neglect under earlier governments, most resources are going to improve roads, rebuild homes, and create new businesses. Little money remains to restore the schools. As a result, students have fallen ill, stayed home...
Rotary releases $34.8 million for polio immunization activities worldwide
Rotary International released an additional $34.8 million in grants to support polio immunization activities in 10 countries, including Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan, the three countries where the disease has never been stopped. The funds, whose release was announced 20 January, will be used by the World Health Organization and UNICEF for polio immunization and surveillance activities in the 10 countries, as well as to provide technical assistance in several other countries in Africa. The grants include $8.1 million for Nigeria to support its final push to eradicate the disease. Nigeria...
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...
