In honor of World Polio Day, which was recognized on October 24th, Seacoast Rotary Club of Portsmouth, NH sponsored “Bridge the Gap to End Polio”. 

Susan Von Hemert, Midge Nelson, Joan Nickell, Martha Netsch, Joy Riddell, Debbie Rodier, Pam Gray from Kittery, Joshua Holt from Kittery After Hours, Susan Gold of Portsmouth Rotary and District Governor Lawrence Furbish were instrumental in organizing and promoting this event. (They were even so gracious as to order up a beautiful day!) Thanks to all the Clubs, committees and individuals who made the event a success. 

As many as 300 Rotarians, family and friends walked onto the new Memorial Bridge to raise awareness and funds for Polio Plus, Rotary International’s 27-year mission to eradicate the crippling childhood disease. Rotary Clubs from District 7780 (southern Maine and seacoast New Hampshire) were all involved, helping to make the final push to eradicate Polio. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation will match each dollar raised two for one, making “Bridge the Gap to End Polio” an event that is sure to have an impact. Be sure to join us next year!

 

 

This morning the Seacoast Rotary Club challenged the Rotary Club of Portsmouth to the ALS Challenge and is proud to be making a donation of over $800 to www.alsa.org.

Restoring vision to hundreds in China
Seeing an elderly Tibetan woman weep with joy when cataract surgery restored her vision after 10 years is the kind of moment Dave Razo will never tire of. For several summers Razo, a member of the Rotary Club of Warner Robins, Georgia, USA, traveled to rural northwest China with a team from Georgia-based nonprofit Gansu Inc., to provide free sight-restoring cataract surgery to some of the country's poorest residents. In 2012, after 22 years and 6,000 successful procedures, Gansu's founder, ophthalmologist William Conrad, retired and discontinued the organization's operations. But Razo didn't...
World Polio Day: Health officials laud polio eradication achievements, point to disease’s endgame
After a year of shrinking polio cases worldwide, the crippling disease is now on the cusp of being eradicated, said top health officials at Rotary's second annual World Polio Day event on 24 October. At a special Livestream program -- World Polio Day: Make History Today -- Rotary leaders joined global health experts and celebrity singers to hail the progress of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative. After nearly 30 years, the GPEI, which includes Rotary, the World Health Organization, UNICEF, U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, is on...
Dynamic young club uses social media to grow
Erin Mills had just finished teaching for the day in Montevideo, Uruguay, when her smartphone buzzed with a message. An impromptu gathering to watch Uruguay's World Cup soccer match was being organized. Through the power of a mobile messaging app, a majority of the Rotary Club of Plaza Matriz had soon assembled at a member's home to munch on baked goods and chips while rooting for their national team. That enthusiasm and ability to draw a crowd has made the club, which just received its charter in July, a success in the country's capital city. Made up almost entirely of young professionals,...

Creating works of art helps refugee children repair their lives
When asked to describe his future, a refugee child from Iraq draws a picture of himself as a doctor. Another child uses colorful paints to depict happy memories of his former life in Iraq. Both children are among the 200,000 displaced Iraqis who now live in Jordan, a country that has become a safe haven for those fleeing oppression and war in neighboring Palestine, Syria, and Iraq. Alexandra Dawley, a former volunteer with the Collateral Repair Project in Jordan, emphasizes how something as simple as an art project can help young refugees adjust to their new lives in a foreign country. With...
