Bicycles for Humantiy     

International Director Ken Foggo introduced our guest speaker David Tucker, a member of the Rotary Club of Crawley and a driving force behind “Bicycles for Humanity WA” (B4HWA). The organisation collects old bicycles, repairs and refurbishes them and then transports them to communities in need. Since its establishment in 2011, B4HWA has transported 5700 bikes to various countries in Africa and 1000 bikes to communities in remote WA.


24 October 2019 Focus on World Polio Day     

24th October is marked globally as World Polio Day, established by Rotary International. Rotary is dedicated to the eradication of this potentially fatal infectious disease for which there is no cure but which can be prevented through immunization. There are only three countries that have never stopped transmission of the wild poliovirus. We are so close to achieving the goal of a polio free world. On 24th October, RC Karrinyup will make a significant contribution to the polio eradication.


Support for African Outreach 2019     

International Committee Assistant Director Ken introduced Colleen Smith, whose African Outreach project in Zimbabwe has long been a recipient of the club's international service support. Meg Godwin, widow of Past President Ken Godwin, introduced our club to African Outreach many years ago and it was lovely to have Meg along to share the evening. Colleen gave us an update on what has been happening with the project since her last visit. Ken presented Colleen with this year's donation to the project, which targets aid for orphans, refugees and the elderly. 


Update from Ndola- March 2018     

RC Karrinyup's major International Project involves supporting a school for at risk children in Ndola, Zambia. Phase 1 of the project, completed in 2016, provided a reliable supply of fresh water. On a recent private visit to Zambia, our member Nchima scheduled a visit to the school. The visit was aimed at continuing to build on our relationship with Arising Life Ministries, to check on current state of affairs and review RC Karrinyup funded projects. He spent a whole day with Joyce Chimbila the Director of ALMS, her staff and the lovely children at ALMS. 


Zambia Water Project     

The Zambia Water Project involved scoping and drilling a bore to sufficient depth and installation of a pump and water tank.  This has now provided clean drinking water for the school of some eighty orphaned and vulnerable children under the support of Arising Life Ministries in Ndola, Zambia as well as to the community of the Kaloko area.


Shelter Box Always on Ground     

We are all aware of the havoc wreaked by Cyclone Winston in Fiji over the weekend, Thousands of homes have been destroyed and the Fijian Government has declared a state of emergency. As always, a ShelterBox Response Team is on the ground and the first ShelterBox aid is being distributed. RC Karrinyup has long been a generous supporter of Shelterbox.
