Value of vaccines recognized in World Immunization Week in parade to salute to healthcare and frontline workers
With sirens blaring and emergency lights flashing, from an ancient fire truck to Delta Police vehicles, and horns honking from a cavalcade of more than 30 trucks and cars adorned with Rotary regalia, the three Delta Rotary clubs of Ladner, North Delta and Tsawwassen, and Rotary District 5040 Governor Bala Naidoo, plus Delta Police, saluted our courageous healthcare and frontline workers on the evening of April 29th and marked World Immunization Week, and the global focus on disease prevention and treatment.
Through its work at different levels in the world, The Rotary Foundation has already funded CDN$10 million in a variety of COVID-19 projects.
In the middle of World Immunization Week, April 24-30, as scientists work to develop vaccines to protect our families, friends and communities from the destructive COVID-19 coronavirus, it's time, more than ever, to recognize the importance of effective vaccines to protect against disease and how far the world has come in fighting disease.
A world of learning comes to children in The Philippines
The African Ruggedized Educational System (ARES) has proven to be such a success in bringing the world's education to children in remote, rural communities of Africa, where there is limited access to books, paper and writing materials, and intermittent power and no access to the internet, it has now arrived in The Philippines.
The first mission of its kind, to introduce what has been called, "Asian Ruggedized Educational System (ARES)", happened in February as a joint International Service Project of the Rotary Club of Ladner and the Rotary Club of Richmond Sunrise. Ladner Rotary President Bridget Jacob, on behalf of this club as a sponsor, participated in the team visit to The Philippines and reported on the overall mission in a club meeting on Zoom April 21, 2020.
Elena Agala, of the Rotary Club of Richmond Sunrise, was the driving force behind the mission to distribute three ARES systems to schools and, as she has done for many years, to provide dental services to those in need in various communities.
Bonnie Sutherland, of the Rotary Club of North Delta, who also a member of the recent ARES team mission to The Philippines, started working in Africa in 1992 with her late husband, Don, both teachers in Delta. In Kenya they saw the great need for teachers and students and began shipping containers of books and other materials to Africa. ARES eventually emerged from this international service in education.

Helping hand for business in COVID-19 pandemic crisis

Virtual meeting a first for Ladner Rotary
Our club is in good company worldwide in holding its weekly club meeting for the first time in 64 years as a virtual one on Zoom. 25 members were able to attend this first of a kind meeting, including three members who have been unable to join us regularly for a long time. There were few technical glitches and we all had a chance to connect. We are back to our weekly meetings on Tuesdays via Zoom. More information to follow.
