ROTARY BOOSTS FUNDING
Rotary General Secretary John Hewko announced an additional $40.4 million Rotary will direct to the fight against polio. More than $26 million will go to African countries to prevent the disease from returning. Rotary has also earmarked $5.3 million for India, $6.7 for Pakistan, and $400,000 for Iraq. Nearly $1 million will support immunization activities and surveillance. Since 1979, Rotary has contributed more than $1.5 billion to polio eradication.“Our program this evening will show how far we have come -- and what we still have to do -- to slam the door on polio for good,” said Hewko. “Once we do, not only will we end the suffering of children from this entirely preventable disease -- we will also create a blueprint for the next major global health initiative and leave in place resources to protect the world’s health in the future.”
Red Hook Rotary welcomed Kimberly Coyle to their recent breakfast meeting where she spoke about the services offered by In Flight to the developmentally disabled.
In Flight, Inc. is an ethical organization whose mission is to empower people with developmental disabilities to achieve their life goals and aspirations in order to lead richer, fuller lives within their communities.
In Flight, Inc. provides services to individuals with developmental disabilities within Ulster, Columbia and Greene Counties. The needs we address include Service Coordination, Residential Habilitation, Day Habilitation, and Respite Services and are provided for within an individual’s home or at a group home.
Each Outbound YEX Scholar requires a reciprocal Inbound student as part of the exchange. To make it easier to host, each Outbound Scholar is to recruit three host families for the Inbound student. The Outbound student's family pays a flat fee to cover airfare, insurance, visa, orientation and training, and the club contributes toward the Rotary blazer, pins, business cards, banners and administrative costs, as well as the monthly allowance and YEX weekends for the Inbound student. Your club benefits from a perceived value that is approximately ten times the actual club investment.
Above is a flyer to promote the YEX Scholarship at your local school, library and other public venues. It provides room to list your club liaison for inquiries. Further information and a club presentation can be requested from YEX Chair David Greenwood at greenwoodYEX@yahoo.com, 845.677.5767.
