Last week we had a privilege to have 2 speakers, two powerful women, our Honorary Member of Rotary Club Jumeirah, Chairman of Emirates Environmental Group and President of Arabia CSR awards Ms. Habiba Al Marashi, as well as Founder and CEO of Jad’s inclusion, Centre for Education for children with autism, Rana Akkad Atassi who shared with us her story about the creation of idea and founding the educational center that helps a lot of families! 

In 2010 Rana Akkad Atassi had a full life and career shift to become a Social Entrepreneur with a mission to change her community for a cause close to her heart. With her middle son Jad being diagnosed with autism at the age of 2, Rana single-handedly took upon herself the mission to create a platform for special needs inclusion. 

Rana started by founding Autism in Dubai, which is a support portal and guide for parents with children of the spectrum. She took the effort a step further and planned several fundraisers to sponsor the therapy of children with autism for those struggling families, and became a real champion for the cause in the region. 

Later on, when her son Jad got rejected from 22 mainstream schools, she simply decided that she would take on the challenge herself of opening a first of its kind in region, top-notch non-profit school, whose mission would be to embrace children like her own that are not accepted in mainstream schools, yet there impermanent is not severe enough to go to a special need center. Several years of determination and struggle gave birth to the opening of Modern Alternative Education (MAE), a not-for-profit fully operational academic and vocational center that bridges the gap between mainstream schools and special needs centers. 

On August 2rd, 2018 and at the tender age of 11, the reason behind all the above, Jad, unexpectedly passed away in his sleep. As devastating as it was for the family, Rana’s motivation to continue her journey amplified considerably as she now saw it as a calling and is making it her life’s mission to keep her son Jad’s legacy alive. 

On January 31st, 2019 on what was supposed to be Jad's 12th birthday, Modern Alternative Education’s name changed to Jad’s Inclusion. 

A multiple award winner of which the 2018 Female Entrepreneur of the year award at The Women in Lead Economic Forum, a diplomat’s daughter, a citizen of the world who is fluent in Arabic, English, and Spanish, Rana is able to bring her global perspective to everything she does and hopes to grow her dream to the world. 

Rana will not stop until everyone in the community welcomes all determined children, and give them the chance to have the safe, secure, and independent future they deserve. 

 

The highlight of the night was Birthday celebration of our VP Urs Stirnimann! Happy birthday Urs and many returns of the day! 
 

Looking forward to welcoming you at our next Wednesday meeting where we will host a VIP guest, Consul of India to Dubai Vipul! 
See you all next week!

"It’s amazing what we can accomplish when hearts and minds work together. Every day we see how leaders from all countries, cultures, and occupations around the world are taking action to enhance health, empower youth, promote peace and improve their community.

In support of this great initiative, our club donated funds to purchase 40 pieces to share with children in Ethiopia who truly valued the contribution.

Rotarian Christoph Thomet, of Richemont Dubai (www.richemont.com) spoke briefly about his involvement with the Centre, which began when his company updated their computers.  Christoph expressed to the Club that, although they were no longer needed, the laptops and PC's were perfectly good to use, and the Centre was suggested as a good cause to donate them to.  The children received around 200 devices.  Christoph expressed his delight when meeting the children and seeing the importance of the work that Shadia and her staff do, and encouraged all Rotarians to get invloved with a project, because it really can make a difference.

Image

In addition to educational aids, the Club has helped by giving the children some much needed medical care. Dr Mitry's Manchester Clinic saw two young girls earlier in the year. 

Now CEDARS – Jebel Ali International Hospital has volunteered to offer free medical services for the students of Al Hemam Training Centre. The hospital provides general check-ups within the pediatric clinic and ENT related tests like audiometry. Since December 2013 every week up to ten children and youngsters are receiving free medical treatments including snacks and refreshments. The Management of CEDARS – Jebel Ali International Hospital is happy to support the students of Al Hemam Training Center to make sure that, at least, their most basic human needs are satisfied.

The Club's Directors and Community Service Committee would like to thank everyone for all their generous efforts to help these wonderful young children.

"On behalf of all the volunteers of the Old Library, we would like to say a huge thank you to the Rotary Club of Jumeirah for the lovely award you have presented us! 

Our library has been serving the community for over 40 years, and it is all thanks to the numerous volunteers; without them we would never have survived this long.

We are all very proud of our small library, and this award and the recognition it represents (coming from the Rotary) is beyond our expectation. Again,  to all of the Jumeirah Rotary members, thank you from all of us!"

As part of Rotary Club Jumeirah and The World Food Programme's Ramadan Campaign to help feed those in need throughout the Middle East, 

Rotarian Amelie Campsey scaled Mont Blanc!

Sadly, on the second day, due to heavy rock falls at the deadliest part of the climb 'the couloir de Gouter', Amelie was forced to turn back, but we think that she did an awesome job and thank her for her immense efforts for the cause.

And we thank her for giving us these fabulous pictures of such stunning scenery........!!!

Rotary Club Jumeirah's Community Service Committee's HUMANITARIAN APPEAL

'JUST ADD HOPE'

The Results Achieved To Date

‘Just Add Hope’ came into being in November 2012 when our team of Rotarians witnessed the shocking state of the refugee camps, where children became the innocent victims of the crisis.

Inspired by the Rotary motto ‘Service Above Self’, Rotary Jumeirah Community Service Committee embarked on an incredible awareness and fundraising campaign. In their path, Rotarians crossed hurdles, but encountered amazing people who wanted to ‘Just Add Hope’.

 

Where are we at now?

Just Add Hope in Lebanon

         300 Children living in Lebanese-based ‘camps’ (Akkar, Bekaa and Tripoli) received education support thanks to Rotary Jumeirah (this help is provided via Save the Children)

         Educational programs focus mainly on providing homework support, preparing them for the coming school year and assisting them in overcoming difficulties, due to the differences in the Syrian and Lebanese curriculum

Just Add Hope in Jordan

         250 shelter boxes and 20 water tankers distributed by the Jordanian Army to serve refugees crossing the Jordanian borders and waiting for their registration at the camp thanks to Rotary Jumeirah (on the ground support provided by Rotarians based in Jordan)

         Caravans were ordered to be used as clinics with medicine equipment required for the injured refugees arriving in Jordan

Just Add Hope and Red Crescent

         Over $6,000 was raised for Red Crescent through GROUPON, to buy the medications that refugees need the most

In addition to giving, Just Add Hope is synonymous of ‘gratefulness’. Rotary Jumeirah would like to warmly thank all the generous donors and helpers that we met in our path. We want to extend more than gratitude but show our esteem to all of them. Words can’t express the beauty of what has been achieved together. Thank you!

Concert for a Cause, In the Name of Love was a fantastic Classical Concert performed by Massimo Fiocchi Malaspina (Piano) and Niccolo Scaccabarozzi (Baritone Vocal).  Organised by Rotary Club Jumeirah and Rotary Club Milano San Siro in collaboration with the Milano Conservatory and the American University in Dubai, a great evening was enjoyed with over 450 tickets sold in aid of Senses School.

Over 64,000 AED was raised in ticket sales and donations and special thanks go to Rotarians Amelie Campsey, Paolo Ogno and Donal Kilalea for their dedication in organising the event.  Also thanks to the Senses Committee Members, the Rotaractors and all the volunteers who helped on the night.

The event has helped to highlight the plight of Senses as well as raise funds for the school, and further events are planned in the Spring to raise more awareness and much needed money.  The Senses Committee have successfully formed a Board at the School and the official License is anticipated in the coming weeks which will help Senses raise it's own funds.

Congratulations to all those involved on this momentous evening.

Rotary Club of Jumeirah,  Rotaract Club of Jumeirah and Rotaract Club of Dubai joined hands to organise together the 1st Rotaray Young Leadership Summit held on Saturday January 21st.

50 people were attending the event, all ages from Intaractors, Rotaractors, Rotarians and guests.

The Rotary Young Leadership Summit featured a whole day workshop which was started by Chris Khouri, a wonderful motivational speaker.

Throughout the day attendees sharpened their knowledge on Social Investment, Energy & Time Management, Manage Change in the Workplace and ended up by talking about how to handle Crisis Situations. In a friendly and interactive atmosphere everybody exchanged and learned a lot during the day.

The event was also the occasion to welcome 3 new members in Rotaract Club of Jumeirah: Lina Aghlal, Elias Yasbeck and Julio Corrador.

All the proceeds gathered during the day have been donated to sponsor a child with the Palestinian Children Fund Relief.

''Service'' and ''Fellowship'' are core values for us and we'd like to thank all the parties involved in organising this great event as they participated on a voluntary basis.

Following the success of Rotarian Amelie Campsey's sponsored Trek up the Damavand Mountain in Iran last summer, when enough funds were raised by fellow Rotarians and friends to plant 700 Ghaf tree seeds, this fellowship event was organised.

Rotarians, families and friends were invited to the Al Awadi Field Studies Centre in Al Dhaid where a presentation about the Ghaf tree and its qualities was given before the participants sourced and sorted their seeds, planted them and then enjoyed a relaxing BBQ lunch in the pleasant January sunshine.

 In line with the Rotary Club's continued efforts to provide monthly fellowship events for its members, Rotarian David Wernery invited the Club to a visit of the Camelicious camel dairy farm in Umm Nahad.

More than 50 Rotarians, Rotaractors, families and friends met at 4pm on a wonderfully clear and sunny Saturday afternoon.  Rot. David greeted all present and did a great job of giving the visitors a tour of the farm.

The guests were briefly informed about the history of the world's first and, to date, only fully automated camel dairy farm, and then led to possibly the most interesting part of the establishment: the milking parlour. David explained that milking camels is not that different to milking cows, although naturally, adaptations due to differences in anatomy and milk yield need to be accounted for.

Following the parlour, the group was treated to feeding some of the camels with carrots, much to the pleasure of the numerous children present (although at times it seemed that the adults had just as much fun!!).

Following the maternity station, and viewing the processing plant where the milk is pasteurized and packaged,  the tour concluded with all being treated to camel milk and given some home supplies of the 'White Gold of the Desert'.

A fabulous afternoon was had by all those who went and the Club extends its sincere thanks to Rotarian David for giving such a wonderful tour and opportunity to see this unique and interesting farm.  Thanks also to Rotaract President Mehdi Trimech for these fabulous photographs:-

 It is Rotary Club Jumeirah's pleasure to announce that, as part of our International Service, we are donating $10,000 (US) to the El Mawaa Shelter for Children in Egypt.

Horus Rotary Club Heliopolis regularly helps the Children, who have for varying reasons been forced to live on the streets.  The Club donates food, clothes and educational materials to the Shelter in order to give the children the best possible start in life.

As well as the donation of goods, the children receive medical care and are taken on fun and interesting trips as often as possible.

The photos below see the children enjoying a trip to a Pharonic Village on Sunday 20th November where they enjoyed a boat trip and tour, as well as a tasty lunch!!

The Rotary Club of Jumeirah organised its "Explore Dubai by Metro" fellowship event on Saturday the 29th October 2011.

A total of 35 people participated in the event including 11 club members, one visiting Rotarian from Ras Al Khaimah, nine adult family members, eight children and six guests.

Starting at 3 pm, the group started gathering in front of the ticket office at the "Mall of the Emirates" Metro station where tickets were purchased. Regular Metro users topped up their NOL cards while new users purchased a one-day travel card for 16 Dhs each. Around 3:30, the group proceeded to the platform and boarded the Rashidya-bound red-line train.

Members, guests and especially children congregated in the front of the driverless train. Everyone enjoyed the scenery and the experience of moving around Dubai without the hassle of driving.

The group's first stop was Union Station which is one of the two stations where the red and green lines meet. The group explored the large station and took a group picture in front of the time capsule sealed on 9/9/9 with a message from H.H. Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum for future generations.

Then the group proceeded to the green line platform where they boarded the Creek-bound train. They disembarked in Al RAS station which is one of the two Heritage-themed stations on the green line. After taking some pictures inside the station, some members explored the area around the station including the Gold Souk and the Creek side.

Around 5 pm, everyone returned to the station to take the green-line train towards Khalid-bin-Al Walid Station where they switched to the red-line Jebel Ali bound train for the ride home.

A fabulous time was had by all and the Club would like to thank Rot. Khaled for organising this interesting and informative trip.

SENSES SCHOOL URGENTLY NEEDS OUR HELP

Rotary Club Jumeirah has donated funds to Senses School for some years now.  After a visit to the School last weekend (22nd October 2011) a number of our Members were very alarmed to see the dire situation the school is now in.

Senses School cares for over 80 children with mental and physical disabilities, 43 of the children are permanent residents.  There are many teachers at the School doing their best to help and support the children.

THERE IS NOT ENOUGH MONEY TO PAY SALARIES FOR NOVEMBER!

THERE IS NOT ENOUGH MONEY TO BUY THE CHILDREN'S FOOD AND BASIC NECESSITIES!

Rotary Club Jumeirah is beginning a campaign to SPONSOR A CHILD.  This campaign will be aimed at the many large corporations operating within Dubai.  One child can be Sponsored for 50,000 AED, or a resident child for 80,000 AED per year.

In addition, we intend to target the media, getting more awareness for the plight of Senses and it's children.

TO OFFER YOUR HELP OR YOUR COMPANY'S HELP, PLEASE CONTACT US AT rcjumeirah@live.com

Our guest speaker this week, guest of Rotarian Frank O'Sullivan was Patrick Mylon, who gave the members and visitors a fascinating and informative talk about the 'unsinkable' Titanic Ocean Liner.

Image

On April 10th 1912 The Titanic set sail on its maiden voyage from Southampton bound for New York.

On April 15th 1912 The Titanic struck an iceberg and sank. 

Patrick explained that the largest peace time maritime disaster could have been avoided if the ship had slowed down and the enormous loss of life only occurred because there were insufficient lifeboats on board.  Here are some statistics you might not know:-

  • The ship carried 20 lifeboats - there should have been 32. 
  • Of the 2,200 passengers on board, only 700 were able to get into the lifeboats.
  • 1,500 froze to death in the water, they didn't drown.
  • Of the 1,500 who died 50 were children, 100 were women and 1,350 were men.
  • Most 1st Class passengers were American and 2nd Class passengers were British.
  • More 1st Class men survived than 3rd Class children.
  • Only 300 bodies were recovered
  • Coffins were provided for the 1st Class passengers, Canvas Bags for the 2nd Class passengers, but 3rd Class passengers were buried at sea.
  • The Shipping company was not responsible for returning the dead to their loved ones.  Relatives had to pay for their bodies to be returned.
  • The iceberg could not be seen because it was black and the lookouts only had two minutes from seeing it to the ship striking it.
Patrick will be releasing a book to mark the Centenary of the fateful night next April which we're sure will be a very interesting and insightful read.  He also recommended the film 'A Night To Remember' (1958) as the most detailed and accurate account of the event.
 
Many thanks Patrick, the Club enjoyed your talk very much!

Rotary Club Jumeirah is happy to announce that Paul Harris Fellowships have been awarded to 2 of our members for their work, dedication and fellowship to the Club and it's sponsored organisations.

Club Treasurer, Ahmad Belselah, and past Board and Founding Member, Donal Kilalea, were nominated by the current Board on behalf of all of the members of the Club.

The Award was granted by Rotary International and the District due to the generosity of the Club and its members due to a matching grant being given by the Club to RC Khartoum.  The amount of $2,500 was donated in 2009/2010.

The Club congratulates Rot. Ahmad and Rot. Donal and is very grateful for their continued hard work and support.

Rot. David Wernery, a Board Member of the Club, and his wife Theresa are embarking on the mission 'Plastic Not So Fantastic (PNSF)'  which RC Jumeirah recently endorsed.  To help support the campaigns awareness  drive, a Rotary Community Corps was established, and is now   officially certified and endorsed by Rotary International, the Rotary world governing body.

A Rotary  Community Corps (RCC) is a group of non-Rotarian men and women who share  Rotary’s values and commitment to service. With more than 6,700 Rotary  Community Corps in over 75 countries, RCCs are considered partners in service.  With the guidance and support of their sponsor Rotary clubs, RCCs plan and  implement projects that address issues affecting their communities such as  health, literacy, safety, employment, and the environment. They may also help  support Rotary club service efforts. Currently there are more than 7,000  Community Corps in over 80 countries.

The  goals of the Rotary Community Corps programs are to:

·         Develop  partnerships between Rotarians and non-Rotarians in a joint effort to enhance  their community.

·    Support  community members who proactively address community needs, recognizing their  unique ability to identify the most pressing concerns and suitable methods of  implementation.

·    Promote  sustainable solutions to community needs by engaging a broader segment of the  community in developing and implementing focused service projects.

The  Plastic Not So Fantastic (PNSF) Rotary Community Corps of the Rotary Club of Jumeirah, Dubai, will campaign and raise awareness about especially plastic  pollution here in the UAE, in our community. Through our continued work, we will support their expeditions mission, especially once they have headed off  on the world trip and are unable to continue with campaign awareness  in the UAE.
