The Rotary Club of Cornwall Sunrise is one of more than 34,000 clubs worldwide; the 1.2 million members represent a wide range of business, professional and community leaders. Rotary's motto Service above Self, embodies Rotary's objective to provide service - in the community, in the workplace and around the globe. Rotarians come from different cultures, ethnicities, political and religious orientations. While this means that each club is unique, it also means that we set differences aside to focus on the issues such as education, vocational training,clean water and sanitation, food security, health and the global eradication of polio.

We  are raising funds for the education of a former Rotary exchange student from Venezuela. Karla was our Rotary exchange student in 2015. After a year as a grade 12 student at CCVS High School in Cornwall Ontario she returned to Venezuela to pursue post-secondary education there.   https://www.gof undme.com/karla039s-education-expenses         or 
Rotary Club of Cornwall Sunrise Foundation, PO Box 565, Cornwall, ON  K6H 5T2

Due to the crisis in Venezuela, Karla has been unable to continue her post-secondary education. She  has applied and been accepted in the 3 year Social Service Worker program at St. Lawrence College in Cornwall Ontario. Funds are being raised to support her 3 years of study as an international student in Canada.

                    $15,300 tuition /year
                    $400-800 / year Average Expenses for Books
                                     = $48,300 + lodging

She is no longer able to pursue her studies at home because Venezuela's economic crisis keeps getting worse. The slow-burning economic collapse is quickly becoming a regional humanitarian crisis as Venezuelans flee in ever larger numbers, looking for refuge in neighboring and nearby countries. More than 600,000 Venezuelans have already fled their country and sought asylum in Colombia.

A large number of students have  been forced to drop out of universities around the country. The economic crisis has forced both university students and professors to either search for jobs elsewhere or simply leave the country. The dramatic fall in the real wages of faculty has caused an estimated 1,600 professors to leave the five main public universities resulting in a desertion rate close to 70 percent. The rectors of UNIMET and UCAB, claim that the Venezuelan State “has deliberately manipulated norms, policies and practices in order to suppress academic freedom and university autonomy". These protests and violence put students at risk.

Deadline for application is June 30th.

Eagle Wings is the very busy EarlyAct Club from Eamer’s Corners Public School with just under sixty active members.  Rotarian Sharon's experience as a participant at a National Immunization Day in India was met with great enthusiasm by the EarlyAct members. 
During a recent visit at one of our meetings, River, a  member of the Eagle Wings eloquently expressed her joy in helping people with projects such as the care packages to Cameroon; the pizza party; the Shoe boxes to the 150 Students in Nunavut. Ms Cindy Esdale, the sponsoring teacher, said students had also participated in the Radiothon, a fund raiser for cancer research; a Food Drive; Socktober (140 socks collected). They have also raised funds and/or supplies for the local OSPCA and  Baldwin House, and participated in Abuse prevention, Anti Bullying and the Cornwall Nationals Recycling programs.
 
The highlight of the year has been the school’s "Care Packages for Kimmirut" campaign that collected more than 1,500 items, enough to provide decorated care packages to the entire staff and student body at the Qaqqalik School, a K-12 facility in the northern community of Kimmirut, Nunavut. Generosity and enthusiasm involved shipping over 22 large boxes  to the North. The shipping bill  turned out to be larger than expected so they are having a fund raiser at Boston Pizza on March 5th. Come out and see EarlyAct in action, the kids will be serving table and putting on a talent show. There will also be a silent Auction. Principal, Sylvia Speck, expressed her excitement with the program in the school. Our club presented a $300 cheque in support of the group.
 
Interact at Char-Lan District High School: Four students from the Char Lan HS Interact club spoke about their activities, including the $1000 that was raised for Polio; the Volley Ball tournament to raise money for a shelter box; an Easter Food Drive for Agape. Over the next few months they are working to recruit some younger students to carry on and do some fund raising to give the club seed money for next year. A cheque from our club was presented in support of their initiatives.
 
 
On January 22nd, members of the Rotary Club of Cornwall Sunrise, assisted by members of the Rotary Club of Gananoque loaded a 40' container with hospital equipment. This equipment came from the abandoned St. Mary’s of the Lake Hospital and has been stored by Capital Moving, Kingston, since it was moved out of the hospital. Queen’s University now owns the former St. Mary’s Hospital site and Providence Care’s replacement facility is furnished with state-of-the-art equipment. In addition to equipment from the hospital, the Rotary Club of Cornwall Sunrise received a number of donations of equipment and medical supplies including physiotherapy equipment from the Active Sport Physiotherapy Clinic in Cornwall.
 
This was the second container of equipment to be shipped to assist deprived rural hospitals and medical clinics in Ghana. The first container was shipped in October. In each case, the container was purchased and will remain in Ghana to be converted to a rural medical clinic.
 
The out-moded manually cranked beds are ideal in a country where the supply of electricity is unreliable. In addition to beds, considerable other equipment such as examination tables, wheelchairs, walkers, IV tubing, wound care supplies, etc. were also included. Special thanks goes to the Rotary Clubs of Kingston, Petawawa, West Ottawa, Gananaque, Cataraqui-Kingston, Chesterville, Massena and Montreal-Westward  and others for helping to facilitate and fund these containers bound for Ghana. This is truly an example of Rotary at work doing what we can to improve healthcare around the world!.
