Reducing Infant and Maternal Deaths in Zimbabwe

The Rotary Club of Ottawa is working with the Sunnybrook Health Center in Toronto and the Harare Dawn Rotary Club, Zimbabwe, to arrange for the shipment of 32 infant incubators to Harare for installation at the main hospital. These have been donated by Sunnybrook and have been packed into 3 shipping containers. The Harare hospital lost their infant incubators in a fire earlier this year. The transportation cost is CAD$24,000 and the Rotary Club of Ottawa is anxious to work with interested Rotary Clubs to have the incubators shipped in January of 2020. 
Thank you so much to the generous Rotarians who contributed to this very successful effort in support of R.E. Wilson School.  With your help we filled 3 hampers with lots and lots of gifts!  They were delivered to the school this past Monday and received with much appreciation.
Here is a picture of the finished hampers.

The Rotary Club of Ottawa was pleased to welcome John Chol and other members from the South Sudanese Languages Institute here in #Ottawa. The Institute used funds received from our Club to publish newly written books for learners of South Sudanese languages.
It was a cold evening when I left my warm dormitory to go to my very first Rotary night, a networking night to be more precise. I already knew of Rotary, but I had never been to a Rotary event before. Since I had just arrived in Canada, I thought that this would be an excellent opportunity to get to know more people. How wrong I was!! Wrong because I was blessed with so much more than just ‘meeting people’. I was warmly welcomed by Kateri Clark, this year's Rotary Club President and quickly introduced to all the Rotarians and Rotaractors. They made me feel so welcome, and I immediately signed up for membership of the Rotaract (Student) Club of Ottawa South.
