  • Since January 1, 2015, an international team of Amateur Radio Operators have been active on the amateur radio bands, with the call-signs “OU0POLIO” in Denmark, and “DL0POLIO” in Germany. The call-signs are to create an awareness that Poliomyelitis (POLIO) is not yet eradicated in the world. Rotarians will not stop immunization programs until Polio is 100% eradicated. Hence, it is anticipated that the eradication will be completed by 2020.
  • What is promoted in individual radio contacts and conversations, our radio operators inform on the work of Rotary in general, and especially with a focus in regard to Polio.
  • Our Radio Operators when talking to other Radio Operators, provide information on the work Rotarians are doing, to END POLIO NOW. https://www.endpolio.org/ 
  • Danish Rotary District 1450, District 1842 Germany by the Rotary Club Altoetting-Burghausen and in cooperation with “The International Fellowship for Rotarians of Amateur Radio,  (R.O.A.R.)”. http://www.ifroar.org/

Guatemala - Gift of a Smile Phase 2 This project involves continuing speech therapy for the 3 girls, a second lip operation for one boy in about October 2016 and cleft palate operations in early 2017 for the other 2 boys. UPDATED Page
 
Guatemala - Milk Every Day - TESS Unlimited is a Dutch charity supporting children in need of cleft lip surgery in Guatemala. This involves dealing with the needs of babies with cleft lips who are too undernourished and/or sick, to be operated on. In Rotary Year 2016/17, London Centenary gave £514 to TESS Unlimited, for their Milk Every Day programme. This programme treats malnourished Mayan Indian children needing cleft lip and palate operations. They are given special drinking bottles, milk, formula, vitamins, medications and the medical supplies needed to ensure they are well enough to have their operations.  It also pays the costs of any malnourished and sick child needing treatment in hospital.
 
Tanzania - Wheelchair Foundation UK - To date, 33 wheelchairs have been purchased and shipped to Tanzania. Members of the Rotary Club of Moshi in Tanzania will receive the consignment for distribution. We expect delivery, soon.
 
Helivan - The District Governor's project for financing the proposed Helivan, a support vehicle for the London Air Ambulance Service should be seen as an important project for the Club in 2016/17.   PROJECT COMPLETED: We are proud to have contributed our support to the DG's project. 
 
KIVA ( Micro Financing) - Continued support and extension of our Portfolio of loans for entrepreneurs wishing to set up or enhance their small businesses
 
RotaKids Club, Churchfield Primary School  - This pioneer project in Edmonton, North London, was lead by Club Secretary Stella Russell and run by 2 school assistants. It began in September 2016. Sadly, the RotaKids Club sessions had to be put on hold following a major fire at the school, which destroyed several classrooms. The project is expected to re-start in September 2017.
