With Texas and the Southern USA not even remotely yet recovered from Hurricane Harvey, Hurricane Irma is currently barreling through the Florida with sustained record-breaking wind speeds of 210 km/h.  Recently, floods in Thailand’s northern and eastern regions have affected over 700,000 people with damages in excess of $300 million. And on the West coast of Mexico, they experienced the strongest earthquake in their history this past week.
 
All to say, many are affected by major environmental disasters and need help.  Rotary is not, traditionally, an organisation of first responders.  However many have been asking, "How can I help as a Rotarian?"
 
One way is to support ShelterBox.

Throughout India and around the world, Rotary clubs are celebrating a major milestone: India has gone three years without a new case of polio. The last reported case was a two-year-old girl in West Bengal on 13 January 2011. To mark this historic triumph, Rotary clubs illuminated landmarks and iconic structures throughout the country with four simple but powerful words, "India is polio free."

What is it like taking a large team to Africa?  It has probably been one of the most rewarding experiences in my life. In mid February, I began leading Rotary members from all over the East Coast of the United States through Ghana. I’ve tried to give the team a warm Ghanaian welcome like I’ve received on my earlier trips. A large trip is a real blessing because each person sees Ghana and our work in a different way.
