True peace is not merely the absence of tension: it is the presence of justice. Martin Luther King Jr

February is Peace and Conflict Prevention month. Of the 60 million people displaced by armed conflict or persecution, 90% are civilians. Half of those civilians are children. That’s millions of reasons why Rotary is so engaged in service projects, fellowships and other Rotary-sponsored campaigns in pursuit of peace in our world.

The Rotary Club of St.Martin Sunrise along with the students of the Prince William Alexandra School recorded multiple PSAs promoting peace among the youths. 
It is more impactful when children hear other children talk about these important issues and that is what our club is trying its utmost to do. Making sure the adults of tomorrow already know the advantages of a peaceful and conflict-free community.

On Wednesday August 5, 2015 proved a very difficult day for all of us in St. Maarten. It was the day when we heard nd some of us witnessed the unfortunate shooting of Police Officer Gamali Benjamin, lovingly called 'Benji'. This incident had dire consequences for the whole community of St. Maarten. Besides the big loss suffered with the death of a dear soul in the line of duty, it was an awakening to the deteriorating levels of safety and security and the overall consequences of youth at risk. In collectively coming to terms on how to deal with this matter, our meeting on August 12th was dedicated to the memory of Officer Benji and prayers for his family.

The meeting drew attention to the need to create more awareness about peaceful coexistence and harmony within the community. We strongly believe that Rotary has a strong role to play in rebuilding a purposeful nation of St. Maarten. Together we can make a lasting difference. Together we can continue the legacy of Officer Benji. Together we can contribute to 'Bringing Back the Friendly Island'. In subsequent meetings, more efforts will be made to conduct a needs assessment on the kinds of activities that can be supported on peace building and outreach to youth at risk. Stay tuned so you can join the initiatives.Image

The topic of World Health Day in 2012 is Ageing and health with the theme "Good health adds life to years". The focus is how good health throughout life can help older men and women lead full and productive lives and be a resource for their families and communities. Ageing concerns each and every one of us – whether young or old, male or female, rich or poor – no matter where we live.

During April the Sunrise Club will have several speakers address health related issues at the weekly meetings.

World Food Day was proclaimed in 1979 by the Conference of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). It marks the date of the founding of FAO in 1945. The aim of the Day is to heighten public awareness of the world food problem and strengthen solidarity in the struggle against hunger, malnutrition and poverty. In 1980, the General Assembly endorsed observance of the Day in consideration of the fact that "food is a requisite for human survival and well-being and a fundamental human necessity" (resolution 35/70 of 5 December 1980).
