MatthewsIn May 2010, Anne Matthews, PDG District 7770, South Carolina, USA, was nominated by RIPE Ray Klinginsmith and elected by the RI Board to serve as a member of The Rotary Foundation Board of Trustees. In September 2010, Anne was elected by the Zone 33 Nominations Committee to serve as Rotary International Director for Zones 33 and 34, effective July 1, 2012.

As an organization, Rotary International has always been in the forefront when it comes to dealing with issues regarding women. There has been a special focus on providing healthcare facilities for women and children.


It was observed that millions of children die each year due to reasons that can be easily prevented. Some of the reasons are malnutrition, poor sanitation and lack of basic healthcare facilities. Rotary is working towards making healthcare accessible for women and children so that they can have a much healthier future.


Apart from initiatives like immunization drives, Rotary believes in education and information to prevent diseases. The women trustees of Rotary have been especially active in all its various projects and continue to contribute significantly. Though women were included as members only in 1987, their contribution ever since has been immense.


In this largely male dominated world women have had to face a lot of struggles to find a place of their own. Things are slowly changing and the scenario is much better today in comparison to a few years ago.Women are excelling in every single field that they have chosen. They are also influencers who are making a huge difference in changing the social scenario.


Women were considered and even called ‘the weaker sex’. They used to play a small role in the family organization. Their voices and opinions were largely unheard.


Today society recognizes the immense potential and capabilities of a woman. Equal opportunities are now being given to women in order to fulfill their aspirations and ambitions. Women are also being encouraged to take up a career as per their wishes so that this influences the future generations too.


Another field where women are showing active participation is in social organizations. Their interest is also gradually increasing in activities related to travel, leisure, culture, etc.


Women have a natural tendency to take on the role of a caretaker. When this happens, their own health is bound to suffer. Everything else becomes more important and taking care of one’sown health is always ignored. There may be enough of signs that one must consider but most women have a tendency to ignore most of them.


Many women may also feel guilty if they would put their needs over someone else’s. Women would not be assertive to voice their opinions and this may lead to stress and resentment. While ignoring signals about one’s health may seem like the easy choice, this may have far reaching consequences in the long run.


There is a range of products today, which can help women solve some of the most commonissues that they face. One such problem is obesity. It can have a huge negative impact on the body image of a person resulting in low confidence and self-esteem. It is also one of the biggest reasons for diabetes, heart disease, cardiovascular issues, etc.


A great resource that can help you learn about some of the best natural products for health and beauty is Sztuczki Zdrowia. They have some great choices, which are completely natural and safe to use.


Using natural products is also advantageous from the health perspective. As they do not have any chemicals, it would ensure no side effects. Living in harmony with nature witha healthy body, mind, and spirit need not be a dream anymore.

History of RI District 3400
Although the history of Rotary in Indonesia began in 1927, Rotary activities were stopped twice. The first was when the second world war began in 1942 and the second on 23rd February 1961 when Rotary was prohibited by the Indonesian government under President Soekarno. Appended below is the chronology of when Rotary started in Indonesia leading up to Rotary D3400 today.The First Rotary Period – April 1930 to 1946
The first Rotary movement in Indonesia was established with the formation of the first Rotary club in Indonesia, the Rotary Club Yogyakarta. Five other clubs were chartered before the six clubs were grouped into a provisional district and was known as District C-Rotary International in April 1930.
Six more clubs were chartered in the next four years. It was that Rotary International, headquartered in Chicago USA granted the provisional District C to the official district status by recognizing it as Rotary International District 79, Indonesia on the 1st July 1934. The growth of clubs in Indonesia had increased to eighteen, two year later before Rotary International District 79 was changed to Rotary International District 45 on the 1st July 1936. When the second world war broke out, Indonesia had twenty six clubs with 819 members but Rotary in Indonesia was inactive from 1942 till 1946.The Second Rotary Period – 1946 to 1961
After the war, some of the Rotarians from Indonesia who survived the war revived Rotary International District 45 and started Rotary again from scratch.
The first Rotary club chartered in the second period was Rotary Club Bandung in 1946 with 42 members. Rotary clubs in Indonesia grew to thirteen clubs before the district was changed to Rotary International District 389 on 1st July 1957.
Four more clubs were added before Rotary growth in Indonesia was interrupted again on 23rd February 1961 when the government under President Soekarno banned Rotary activities throughout Indonesia. Up to that time, the Rotary International District 389 had seventeen Rotary clubs with five hundred and fifty three members.

The Third Rotary Period – 1966 to 1991 until today
The birth of the new order government of President Soeharto in 1965 brought a fresh new hope and optimism for Indonesia. It was in 1996, under the positive influence of such conducive environment that a number of ex-Rotarians started together again under the flagship of Rotary and strived to have Rotary recognized and permitted under President Soeharto’s government. Their efforts paid off when the state recognized Rotary formally and legally through the article No. 45 in Tambahan Berita Negara Republik Indonesia on the 5th June 1970, the Ministerial decree from the Ministry for Justice dated 20th May 1970 No. J.A. 5/70/9 declared the legal and rightful existence of Rotary in Indonesia under the name Perkumpulan Rotary Indonesia. The first Rotary Club chartered in this period was Rotary Club Jakarta on 7th December 1970. The following years, we saw rapid growth of Rotary clubs worldwide and also in Indonesia. With fifty five Rotary clubs already chartered, District 340 was changed to Rotary International District 3400 on 1st July 1991.

Charity has come a long way. From donating unwanted things to mere pennies, today people get involved and do projects for the betterment of the needy people. People don’t just stop with collecting money for the people who lost their houses in a natural calamity; they build it for them and hand over completed houses. This is because Rotary understands that sometimes just handing over the money may not work. People may use it for other reasons or spend it foolishly, thus rendering the project useless.

If money were collected for new houses and given to a section of people, not all will use it for that purpose. Many will use it for other purposes or spend it foolishly and continue to live where they are. As a result, the lifestyle improvement does not happen as planned.

Similarly, the investment scenario has also changed. It has evolved from a mere group of investors getting together to invest their money into something and earning out of it, to a trade that is carried over, all over the world. Companies have share holders all over the world.

When investors are not too keen on going to a trader or a trading company to get some help with their investments, they can opt for trading software like HBSwiss and let the computer do everything for you. You need not worry about any calculations or analysis as they are all made by the software and money is invested accordingly.

As time and technology evolves, lifestyle and people change and adapt themselves to the changing times.




Rotary had entered Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania  from 1930 onwards and was gaining foothold when the Second World War broke out in 1939.

This World War changed the lives of just too many people and many had to start all over again. They were not only homeless but had no idea what to do with their lives. Those days, there were no stock exchanges or automated software like HBSwiss, to help one invest wisely. One only had land and houses to invest in. with the war, it was all gone.

This short article is going to try to cast some light on the faith of Rotary in Estonia and also a flick of light on Latvia and Lithuania.

In 1939 the Soviet Union wanted to secure naval garrisons in Estonia and opened talks with the Estonian Government under the leadership of President Konstantin Paets (member of the Rotary Club of Tallinn and  General John Laidoner (charter president of Rotary Club of Tallinn 1930).

The result was that Estonia was occupied in the autumn of 1939 and early 1940 and made a member of the Family of Soviet States in August 1940. ( Soviet propaganda text).

Naturally the Soviet regime was organized so that the local government was in the hands of local people but with strong ties to Moscow. President Paets was taken to Russia  never to return to his native country, but to die in a mental institution in  southern Estonia 1956.

The soviets did not look favourably at Rotary or Rotarians but they had their hands full so, that they actually did not start active persecution of Rotarians until shortly before they had to retreat in 1941 when Germany opened the Operation Barbarossa on June 22 1941 and stormed as far as the gates of Leningrad (St. Petersburg or Petrograd as it was called then) and Moscow.

The city of Peter the Great was laid under siege for 890 days and suffered terribly. It was not until January 1944 that the city was retaken by Soviet troops and the siege was lifted.

Germany occupied all the Baltic States and started a systematic campaign to remove from office any person who had been or was a member of Rotary Clubs or a Free Mason Lodge.

The operation was a result of the directive of the Ministry of the Interior (Ministerium des Inneren) of 1937 to order all Rotarians in Germany to either relinquish membership in Rotary, or their office in German state or local government or the courts..

This regulation actually resulted in the sad situation that all Rotary Clubs in Germany returned their Charters to RI on October 1937. Rotary could start again in West – Germany in 1948.

The Reichskommisar for das Ostland ( Governor of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania) received a letter from the Ministry of the Interior in September 1942 with a directive to start an inquiry into how many (not German nationals or of German decent) , officials had a history of membership in Rotary or a Mason Lodge and to subsequently make sure that they left office.

Dos. II 1a 451 (439)

The follow-up was quick and is dated Oct. 5 1942.

The ministry orders the immediate departure from the clubs or lodges and also requires that no contact should be kept to former club members.

On October 29 1942 the Commander of the Security Police in Riga (Befelhaber der Sicherheitzpolizei und SD, Riga) reminds all Chiefs of the security police in Reval(Tallinn), Riga, Kauen (Kaunas), Minsk) that the matter needs immediate attention and requests a report as soon as possible.

Dos. II 1a 414 Geheim

On November 17, 1942  the Reichsicherheitshauptamt, Berlin ( Bureau for State Security)  requests that all Rotary Clubs and other organization should be allowed to terminate their activities voluntarily and that  all material such as minutes from meetings, membership rosters etc should be secured.

That letter contains a full list of Rotary Club presidents and secretaries and their addresses.



Note:  President Harald Tammer, Tallinn, was taken prisoner by the Russians and deported to Siberia (1941) Secretary Silvers in Taru, and his family was taken prisoner by the Russians and deported to Siberia

The son of Architect Vytutas Landsbergis – Zemkalnis also Vytuas Landsbergis  b. 1932 became President of Lithuania in 1990 and was in the vanguard of the Lithuanian freedom fight from the Soviet Union in the frightening period in 1990 and 1991.

Professor Puusepp was a leading specialist on brain surgery at the University of Taru (founded 1632) but had died a few months before the report was written.

Dos.IV B 3 – 500/42

On February 1 1943 the German  Security Police in Estonia   reports as follows:

Free translation: Secret

“The Rotary Club of Noemme- Tallinn was abolished by the “Bolschevists” Russians in the summer of 1940. The former club secretary Mr Johannes Toomes b. 19.08.1890 had gives the archives of the club to Notary Rudolf Tikmann b. 25.03.1890 (see above) who in turn had, for fear of the Bolscheviks, burned all the material  “.

Signed Hinze, SS-Oberstumbandfürer

A further report dated 17 February 1943, tells us that:


The Rotary Club of Tallinn, admitted to Rotary International on 2 August 1930 had some 70 members in  1941 when the Russians took the President of the club, Harald Tammer, prisoner and transported him to camps in Siberia, never to return. President Tammer was a lawyer by profession.

The report goes on to tell that the membership fee was 20 Estonian Krooni, of which half went to RI  in the US.

The Rotary Club of Tallinn had contacts with clubs in Finland, Lithuania, Latvia and Germany.

After the Soviet occupation in 1940 the club actually decided to terminate. The archives of the club where partly burned by the secretary Kristelstein and partly it was disposed of by the Restaurant Kuld Lövi (Golden Lion), Tallinn. So, nothing fell into the hands of the Soviets or the Nazis.

The archives of the Rotary Club of Tartu, fell into the hands of the Soviet occupants.

After 1941 the Rotary Clubs in Tallinn did, according to an interview ,  with Bruno Wingisaar, (veterinary medicine), not have any open activity but the members of the clubs in Tallinn used to take long walks together, for fear of the secret police and  Gestapo.

Rotarian Wingisaar managed to flee to Finland in 1943 and was a member of the Rotary Club of Mikkeli and Helsinki North-West for many years to come.

The reference material has been found in Riga ,Latvia in connection with research for an other history project and I take this opportunity to thank Rotarian, Past Club President of the Rotary Club of Tallinn, Andres Sauter for sharing a part of his findings to help me write this short article.

Women are expected to maintain a perfect balance juggling their different rolesboth at home and at work

When my boss at the Kentucky New Era newspaper died,  I didn’t want to learn to work with anyone else and I needed a rest from the newspaper business.  So I stayed on the radio station until 2010 and then I retired again.


Women are expected to maintain a perfect balance juggling their different rolesboth at home and at work. Things for women are slowly changing for the better compared to a few years ago.


Earlier women were almost dormant and silent participators in the family organization. Today, they are becoming more and more active and are getting involved in a variety of social causes.


There is also an increase in the opportunities given to women in comparison to earlier.Many women have begun to recognize the vast potential hidden inside them. Society is slowly recognizing the unique capabilities of women and respects the aspirations and ambitions of women.


The life of working women can be especially tough with the high expectations of handling home and career well. Sometimes women may find themselves faced with issues at work such as gender perceptions, leadership challenges, etc. While handling all this, the one factor that naturally seems to take a backseat is their health.


Women regularly come across information about what is good for them and what is not. The challenge lies in listening to it and making the necessary changes, which they are unable to do. Most women struggle with it and may even feel guilty to put their needs before others.


Trying to take care of others and not their own health is not a great idea in the long run. Only when the health of the women is fine will they be able to take care of the others and handle the various responsibilities.


It is becoming increasingly common to come across women who are struggling with health issues. One such issue is obesity.


Obese people have a high risk for various health conditions and serious diseases. Some of them are heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, etc. The best way to maintain an ideal weight is eating right, exercise, and adequate sleep. Those who feel like this is a long process and wish to see quicker results may resort to supplements.


However, choosing to consume supplements may have one major advantage. It can work well to lose fat, build muscle, improve focus and performance, etc. One such example of a supplement, which works to regulate weight loss, is CocoSlimmer.


It has a unique coconut taste and is a 100% natural product. It works by suppressing appetite and its composition helps to burn fat. Drinking this product fifteen minutes before breakfast would aid in weight loss and better metabolism.


There are various organizations where women have had a significant impact on its progress. Rotary International is one such example. Women have been an extremely active percentage of the total worldwide members. They are continuously putting in their best efforts to make lasting change for a better world.


Playing multiple roles and excelling at them comes naturally to most women Rotarians. Working with passion, integrity, and dedication helps these Rotariansto overcome a challenge, however big or small. They represent Rotary’s motto of Service before Self perfectly.Learning to make the most of the given opportunities may seem like a struggle to many women but it is also something that they enjoy.


Coming back to my life, As mentioned, I’d been a member of the Cadiz Rotary Club since 2000, and found it a perfect fit. It reminded me of the military, no really, it was close knit, everyone seemed to care about each other and I felt at home immediately.

Rotary International has been in existence for more than a century

Rotary International has been in existence for more than a century. Since then it has been working tirelessly to address the various challenges that the world faces today. Its reach has spread all across the globe all thanks to the vision of the man who was responsible for founding the organization.


Paul Harris formed the Rotary Club in 1905. His aim was to create a platform for professionals to exchange ideas and forge friendships irrespective of the diverse backgrounds they belong to. He also wished that this platform contributed to bringing about positive changes in the community. The success of his mission is evident in the massive reach of the Rotary International today and its causes.


After Paul Harris, his successor was Glenn Mead. Russell Greiner was the third president of Rotary International and like his predecessors contributed significantly to the movement. His dedication continues to be a source of inspiration to young Rotarians.


When the leadership of an organization has the right skills and qualities, it can shape the culture and ensure maximum productivity. A leader is required to have numerous important traits, which directly affect the organization, its work environment, and workforce.


Some of these traits include intelligence and excellent communication skills. These are necessary to express the ideas in a precise manner to achieve the desired results. A leader must also have vision and foresight. This will enable them to find appropriate solutions to the objectives one wishes to fulfill in the future.


Having confidence and responsibility is not only essential for the leader. When these qualities are visible it will automatically make the leaders seem trustworthy to the people around. In addition, it will aid in bringing out these very qualities in their individual personalities.


Care must also be taken to stay connected and having a humanist approach to solving problems. This has a positive effort on the working environment and improves efficiency.


It is not uncommon to find individuals pursue career growth with an aim to lead their organization. However, this can have a serious impact on one’s health.


Working for longer hours leads to an increase in fatigue. This adversely impacts and decreases productivity. Some common symptoms faced would be irritability, a decrease in concentration, lack of sleep, etc. One would also be at a high risk of injuries and accidents due to the increased stress levels.


Eventually, long working hours and stressful working conditions lead to making unhealthy food choices and undesirable weight gain. Consuming unhealthy and processed foods greatly increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. It also signals the onset of lifestyle disease such as diabetes.


Weight gain can also affect your confidence and self-esteem. It could lead to a situation where social life is further neglected.


Sometimes even eating the right foods cannot guarantee that the correct weight is maintained. This where a product like Eco Slim is a great solution.


This liquid product helps the body to get rid of toxins and ensure that the gastrointestinal tract functions optimally. By regulating the metabolic processes of the body, a marked difference will be seen in the condition of skin, nails, and hair after its consumption.


Reaching the pinnacles of success with a great mind and healthy body is now possible with this product.

One of the simplest ways to lose all the extra fat on your body and get back the figure you lost is Eco Slim. It is an all natural way to supplement your weight loss regime.

The rotary club – deeply involved in many activities

The rotary club, no matter where in the world, have many aims that involve the betterment of one and all. The members always strive to spread the words of health and happiness along with friendship to everyone.

They are deeply involved in many activities that help make life better for people. One such issue is making women financially literate. As often, women are not aware of the financial situation of the house, the Rotarians encourage women to take up the financial portfolio of the house. Women in turn often suffer from lack of confidence because of poor health or neglect towards themselves.

And this is where Frumusete Sanatate comes into the picture. When health and beauty products are created, the main aim behind it is to have a healthy mind in a healthy body and for a person to be in sync with nature. As when a body is strong from outside as well as within, it naturally shows on the face in the form of attractive looks.

No doubt, the latest advances in science and technology have made it possible for people to look attractive or improve aesthetically. But no aesthetician will be able to get a person the happiness that must come from within. That will only happen when a person is close to nature. The social networking and other advances have got people closer virtually, but in the process, they have become separated from their base which is nature.

Recently there have been many signs of progress in the medical and cosmetic world that have made it possible to create products from naturally occurring substances. These products are created such that it is possible to stimulate the metabolism of the body and provide it with power and energy. However, one must beware that sometimes these products contain active components which are extremely strong and may result in side effects that might even become a permanent problem.

When we consider the modern lifestyle and the problems that come along with it, we cannot miss obesity. It has in recent past become one of the biggest problems in modern man. Not only does it affect the aesthetic appearance of a person, but their self confidence also takes a hit. Along with that, obesity also beings along with it bigger problems which include cardiovascular diseases, diabetes mellitus, high blood pressure, increased levels of cholesterol as well as deteriorated skin conditions etc.

To combat these problems, again one must stay as close to nature as possible. Combating obesity is possible by doing some simple physical exercises like running, jogging, walking or swimming. One need not invest in expensive machinery nor does one need to work out like an athlete. But simple natural forms of exercise will also do the trick.

As what the body needs is simple physical exertion. This exertion will help to flex all the muscles of the body and tone them into a better shape. It will also help to burn all the extra fat along with all the extra calories.

Exercising regularly makes a person feel good from within. It helps release dopamine which is a ‘feel good’ hormone. It gives the body that rush of energy and vitality that it needs the most. It also helps to eliminate the negativity that is caused due to stress.

Stress is an increasing problem which comes along with performance pressures, poor dietary habits, lack of sleep etc which invariably deteriorates a person’s health. But when one walks closer to nature, you will realize that your true happiness lies right there.

Rotarians have always aimed towards making life better

Rotarians have always aimed towards making life better for one and all. They do all that is possible to boost friendship and make everyone healthy and happy. They also have done some great work in empowering women and making women strong to shoulder important financial responsibilities as well.

Often women are extremely busy working towards achieving various goals in their personal as well as the professional life that they often do not have any time to look after themselves. This gives rise to many neglected skin conditions.

Spending long hours in the water, or wearing socks or closed shoes for long etc give rise to fungal infections in the nails and particularly in the space between the fingers and toes. As these conditions often do not cause any pain, these are most often ignored. Or at least put off till they become severe with redness, itching or other symptoms. Another condition that comes along with such problems is smelly feet that may be caused due to bacterial growth in affected areas. All of this can become extremely embarrassing for a person.

But again, because it appears unhealthy, people often feel shy or avoid visiting a doctor or a pharmacy and prefer to let it be. But now with Fresh Fingers easily available, one need not make that shameful visit to the pharmacy and get an easy solution to all your fingers and toes related problems.

If you are suffering from any conditions like redness and itching in the toes and fingers, fungal infections of the nails, skin feels dull and dry all the time. If you face other symptoms that include swelling, flaking of the nails etc. Fresh Fingers is the right product for you. It is a safe and reliable way to not just curb all the symptoms but also significantly reduce the infections too. It is not just easily available, it is also easy to use and is much cheaper than a visit to the doctor or the pharmacy.

The main components of Fresh Fingers include:



Vitamin E

Essential Oils

All these components work towards eliminating the infections as soon as possible. As skin infections like fungal infections and nail infections are not just unpleasant to see but can also harbor many other diseases that may be caused by bacterial growth in that area. Also, these conditions tend to worsen existing conditions like asthma or diabetes mellitus as well.

The Climbazole helps in reducing the fungal infection in the skin, it is also a useful agent in reducing the symptoms of itching that may be caused due to it. The Farnesol is what helps to block the sweat glands. It can also be used to reduce the bacterial infestation in the affected area. This can help in reducing the bad odor that comes from affected feet.

The Vitamin E is what helps in the regeneration of skin and helps to make the feet and hands soft and smooth once again. And finally, the essential oils help in providing the skin with a cooling effect along with the pleasant smells of it.

How to use Fresh Fingers? It is available as a deodorant and must be sprayed directly on the affected area. It can be used as a treatment option as well as a preventive measure too.

Ordering Fresh Fingers is now easier than ever, as its production has increased, it can be made available anywhere in Europe and that too with some attractive discount offers too.

Fishing can be a lot of fun for those who have the patience

Fishing can be a lot of fun for those who have the patience and know the rules of the game. if one wants to spend only an hour or so and get a great catch, they are only dreaming.

Rotary International is very well known for its charity work and contribution to the betterment of human lives all over the world. There are members who append more o n these projects than on themselves. Many of these members are those who can earn good money but feel their money had more value than just decorating their house or buying the most expensive car in the market.

This club is formed by a group of likeminded people and has grown ever since. This organization has only surged forward with its ideas and projects and has never stepped back. This has been possible not only because of members with money, but also because of their fellowship.

Rotary gives importance to the fellowship of its members because only when the members are friendly and comfortable with each other, will projects be carried out smoothly. Apart from just getting these members to meet up or go on a tour, we organize more specific fellowships that targets different groups.

One such fellowship is the fishing fellowship. We know there are a number of members who like to spend a day on their boat, waiting for a fish to bite. It takes a lot of time and patience to land a good catch and some of the best friendships are formed on these boats. We at rotary did not want to pass up on this opportunity, and hence this fellowship.

What we do is, we choose one of the fishing spots based on the weather and members’ suggestions, and then we hire boats and go out to fish. This is done over a weekend, so that most members can make it and need not take a day off work. Also, a weekend is a good time to bond. The members are relaxed, laid back and open to new ideas and relations.

Many new project ideas are found here and many groups are formed to carry out such projects. when you are sitting and waiting for that perfect big fish to bite the bait, it doesn’t matter whether you are sipping on a glass of Chocolate Slim or a bottle of your favorite beer, the mood is relaxed and you have nothing much to do.

These ideas and discussion is what makes Rotary unique and the members come up with new ideas and projects to make a difference to the lives of those who need it the most. Only when people discuss will they come up with useful arguments and suggestions as to what has to be done where and what could be the drawbacks. This helps us streamline our projects and reduces failure.

Each member is an experienced and distinguished member of the society, who not only have contacts but also know how the system workday and what can succeed and what can fail in the current scenario. This ensures the projects are a hit every time.

The world of medicine is making progress in leaps and bounds

The world of medicine is making progress in leaps and bounds. New technology is being developed and new products are being manufactured which is crucial in increasing the life span. This is also necessary to deal with various challenges such as unknown diseases and medical conditions.


One cannot imagine life today without the expertise of medical professionals who work tirelessly to reduce the suffering of people. They are leading tough and stressful lives but continue to dedicate their lives to the noble cause of good health. In spite of advances in technology, doctors are a vital component of the medical industry.


While medical professionals are important, their services can be of even greater help to humanity when they join an organization. With a large number of categories of medical personnel, an organization is able to utilize their potential to the maximum. One such organization is Rotary International.


With a network that spans all across the globe, we believe in the concept of service before self. This is similar to the principles that all diligent and hardworking doctors follow. Rotary International works on a number of projects in various fields such as healthcare, sanitation, education, peace, etc.


We have a fellowship exclusively for health professionals with active members around the world. Most of them include doctors, nurses, and workers in the field of healthcare and all of who are Rotarians.


Our vision is to support, promote and improve conditions all over the world. We perform volunteering work with great enthusiasm and positive spirit. Whether it is a local or international initiative in the field of healthcare, we work with a strong commitment to supporting it.


The fellowship works as a platform to facilitate interaction and exchange of ideas with fellow professionals globally. This can be a great resource for all Rotarians who are connected to the profession of health as well as its allied fields.


While one cannot deny how important the role of doctors is, medicines play a vital role in ensuring the desired results from a treatment. Medicines do not just treat a disease or injury but it can also work to prevent it from occurring. Living a longer and healthier life is possible now with the advancements in the medical industry.


Old age is inevitable and so are the diseases and ailments that come along with it. During this time the wear and tear begin to show in the body as our cells degenerate with time.


There are prescription drugs available today that not only repair the damage caused to our body but also helps avoid the possibility of surgery. Conditions like arthrosis and osteochondrosis can be extremely painful and can affect the daily lifestyle of individuals. A product called Hondrocream can help reduce the pain, regenerate joints and ligaments and make a noticeable difference in a short period of time. It is also known to be effective in healing joints after an injury.


The Rotary International has a reliable and efficient human workforce. This passionate resource along with the tools such as the right equipment and medicines can help achieve their goal of stability and prosperity.
