Raising awareness on the Afghanistan crisis

RCMC recently hosted a talk by Ms Lynette Lim of Hagar Singapore. Hagar Singapore is a registered charity in Singapore and part of an international organisation with 27 years of experience in fighting against human trafficking, slavery and abuse. Committed to the recovery and economic empowerment of marginalised women and children, HAGAR provides recovery services and empowerment to survivors to help them start a new life and reduce their risk of re-exploitation. In the process, HAGAR works closely with MOM and MHA; co-chairs of the Inter-Agency Taskforce on Trafficking in Persons in Singapore to provide recovery care for victims of human trafficking. Since 2014, HAGAR has provided training to more than 4,000 Singapore frontline policemen on topics related to human trafficking and victim identification. Its key values are respect, integrity, compassion and excellence.
HAGAR has an international presence. In Afghanistan in particular, HAGAR has been working there for more than a decade (since 2008), and is providing emergency relief to displaced families affected by the current humanitarian crisis. Based on their rapid needs assessments, an estimated SGD700,000 is needed to help provide food, healthcare and critical assistance over the next 3 months; 100% of proceeds will go directly towards implementing the relief activities.
The talk was very well attended; members were highly engaged and showed great concern for this area of work, and Ms Lynette shared insights that were both heartbreaking and heartening.
Human trafficking, slavery and abuse creates trauma that is simply incomprehensible, and the urgency of tackling these issues cannot be overstated. Through the talk, RCMC hoped to raise awareness of human trafficking, slavery and abuse, and provide Rotarians with a fresh opportunity to exemplify the core Rotarian values of service and leadership in this important fight.

Earth Day 2021

story thumbnail
Earth Day was founded in 1970 and is held April 22 every year. It was designed to recognize environmental issues and to encourage education and awareness about the planet. Some cities have even expanded it to a full week. 
Ambree is passionate about the environment and shared with us the menu that went up on the ESRAG newsletter. Hope the menu inspires you to try out these fantastic dishes!

Colours & Cheers: Mural Painting at Bishan Home

Last Sunday, 24 February, we continued our long-term cooperation with the Bishan Home for the Intellectually Disabled by bringing a touch of colour to the common area of the home.

Members of Rotary Club of Marina City and youths from the Rotaract Club of Marina City and the Interact Club of Dunman Secondary School came together for the project.  The outcome of the hard work and creative expression was warmly received by the staff and residents of the home. We painted the canteen, lift lobby and the therapy walkways. About 50 pairs of hands (and 4 paws—Christoph Hein's dog) participated in brightening up Bishan Home that day.

RC Osaka Oyodo

Posted by Bernd Götze on Dec 10, 2012

Our Planned Sister-Club Visit to RC Osaka Oyodo

The festive season is approaching fastly - and soon thereafter preparations for the Chinese New Year will start. Time is flying! So, this is to announce that the club is organising a visit by (hopefully many) members of our club to the Japanese sister club Osaka-Oyodo. They will be celebrating their 40th anniversary early next year. The date for the celebration we already know: it will be Thursday, 21 February 2013. They will hold a reception starting at noon followed by some other meetings and events planned for the entire day. And the day will close by a big dinner reception.

We are aiming at leaving on a late-night flight to Osaka on Wednesday, 20 February. Flights usually leave short before or after midnight. We would arrive there in the morning. Albeit may be a bit taxing on us all, the day of arrival will be fully planned and booked with the above-outlined events (details to follow).

On Friday and Saturday (22 and 23 February), the members of the Osaka-Oyodo club wish to show us around in the city and also in the vicinity of Osaka. That depends on how far we want to go. There is the historic icon city of Kyoto nearby - and also the even more ancient city of Nara. But also travelling South (a one-day bus tour only) there are scenic mountains found with very old temples (8th century) and other historic sites.

Some may wish to stay longer. The first to depart would possibly be those leaving on Sunday23 February around noon. For the others: From skiing in the Japanese Alps to going South by Shinkan-sen to Kyushu for the hot springs and traditional hotels ... to a 3-hour trip by Shinkan-sen to Tokyo. Everything is possible. Interested? Please let us know. We will keep you informed.

Bishan Home Outing

Outing with Residents of the Bishan Home

Rotarians and Rotaractors from our Club (RCMC) and the Rotaract Club of Marina City turned up in force for an outing with the Bishan Home for the Intellectually Disabled on 27 October.  Residents from the Home had requested to be taken to lunch at McDonald’s at Ang Moh Kio Park.  They were ferried there in a brand-new van donated by our Club.

Make up for a Missed Meeting in 5 Minutes

Modern life means that many of us travel so much that we can attend neither our Club meeting nor the meeting of another club for a makeup.

Fortunately, modern life also provides a simple solution: Do a makeup online, with the Rotary E-Club of 3310!
