Stories
Brittany Beatty, Operation Eyesight
On Tuesday this week we heard from Brittany Beatty, from Operation Eyesight. Operation Eyesight was founded in Calgary, some thirty-five years ago. She talked to us about some of the initiatives they have with their partner hospitals in India. She said that losing one’s eyesight is especially harmful for the very young, the very old and the very poor. The provision of eyeglasses, or performance of a simple surgery for cataracts, at a nominal cost of around fifty dollars, can be life altering for these people. It also has an effect on other family members, as many times, girls or women are forced to stay home from work or school to look after someone who has lost their sight. Eyesight problems are more prevalent in poor countries for several reasons. Lack of knowledge about the treatments for eye conditions, combined with harmful cultural practices such as using salt in the eyes as a treatment, can result in almost two and half percent of the population suffering from some type of blindness in some countries. This makes it a major health issue.
 
Over the years Operation Eyesight has established over one hundred vision centers in India. They work in conjunction with government and local hospitals, many of which are non-profit, to educate and screen people and deliver needed eye care. In the past year they screened more than three million people in India.  They do this through training local volunteers, who then go door to door in small villages, to screen and educate the local people, and to offer transport and access to treatment when needed. They also help by providing equipment and training for staff and volunteers. They work on a cost recovery basis and ask people receiving their services to pay a small fee.
 
They are very proud of the fact that in 2017, they received a Sustainable Development Goals Award from the United Nations, in recognition of the fact that they met seven of the seventeen goals that they have established. They have helped to reduce poverty, promote good health and well being, provide quality education, ensure gender equality, provide clean water and sanitation, ensure reduced inequalities and created partnerships to fulfil their goals.  Recently they have not been able to qualify for matching grants from the federal government as their goals do not align with the current government’s new focus on supporting charities that are more focused on women.  They can use our support, now more than ever.

Oil Kings and Polio Plus
Attention all Rotarians and guests.
 
It’s my pleasure to be officially launching this season’s End Polio Now campaign with the Edmonton Oil Kings.  

Last year we raised more money to End Polio through Oil Kings tickets than ever before, and Tim Schilds and I have set a goal to beat that number this season.  In fact, Tim wants to hit 1,000 Rotary tickets sold for the 4:00 PM game Sunday, February 25th vs the Swift Current Broncos, which would be a phenomenal accomplishment (and I’d owe him a steak dinner!)

This season we have added a fun social aspect to the event – starting at 3 PM sharp, the North Mezzanine Club will be open exclusively for Rotarians to mix and mingle and get to know one another.  There will also be in-game recognition for the Rotary Clubs in attendance, as well as a cheque presentation celebrating the money raised!

This season, Rotary tickets are $29, with $11 from each ticket sold donated to end the fight against Polio around the world.  Rotarians will be able to purchase tickets by contacting me, purchasing from Tim, or purchasing online via the link below:

Hold CTRL and click the link above and it will take you directly to the correct location.  The promo code is ENDPOLIO

The link above won’t allow purchasers to buy more than 8 tickets at a time, and it works best on desktop or laptop computers (Smartphones and tablets don’t work so well).  If you’re having trouble with the link, or for larger orders please contact me directly via email, or 780-409-2494

Tickets are available starting now, so order soon.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Yours in hockey, 

Jason Adams.

Patrick Gibson, New Hope School Fundraising Presentation

New Hope School

Our Rotary group has partnered in a joint venture with the Rotary Club of Pretoria to help raise funds for the New Hope School in Pretoria. Patrick Gibson has put together a presentation that he will be making to the other rotary clubs in our area to encourage them to help us with this venture. Our goal is to put enough funding in place for us to be able to apply for a Rotary International matching grant.
 
Patrick gave us the same presentation he will be making to other local rotary groups. It included a short introduction on the New Hope School, followed by a video that has been prepared by the New Hope School. The New Hope School has been one of the projects of our club for some years now, and most of our members are well aware of the work they do in schooling for handicapped children in the Pretoria area. They provide many services above and beyond the usual schooling activities, such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and many others, as needed by their students.
 
They receive only basic funding from the local government, so must fundraise to provide these other services. Some of the specific projects our funds could be used for would be a specialised playground, or programs to provide technical skills such as kitchen skills, nail and hair salon skills and sewing skills.  Patrick has also put together a ‘Go Fund Me’ page on the web, on which people can get more information, view the video and make contributions. We will also be adding a link on our Rotary web page to this site.
 
 
 
Presidential Peacebuilding Conference
 
As you may know RI President Ian Riseley is holding six peacebuilding conferences around the world. The first of these international conferences is close for your members to attend. On February 9-11, 2018 in Vancouver, BC. The presidential peacebuilding conference will examine sustainable global and local environmental practices, and their contributions to peacebuilding and peacemaking.
 
Participants will discuss the impact of environmental issues on health, fresh air, clean water, vegetation, and food production – and how improved environmental conditions are a fundamental condition of building peace within communities. The conference will bring together community leaders, youth, and representatives from the public, private, and government sectors. Attendees also can participate in a hands-on service project the morning after the conference.
 
There will be a focus on how Rotary clubs can involve their local community in sustainable projects and peacebuilding.
 
Members of any Rotary club are to encouraged to attend this important international Rotary event.  
 
The conference website has a list of keynote speakers, link to book a hotel room, draft program and a link to the registration.  Please visit: www.EnvironmentandPeace.com.
 
Rotarians from the US, Canada and around the world will come together at the Hyatt Regency in Vancouver for this conference. Will your club be represented? 
 
Thank you for all you do for Rotary and your community,
 
 
Chris Offer, PDG
for Rotary Peacebuilding Conference Vancouver
