Joe Clarke of from the Toronto Eglinton Club presented the WASH program for Schools in Bugiri Uganda.  The objectives are: to provide practical facilities and education for the supply of clean water for drinking, latrine maintenance, hand washing, and menstrual hygiene management. 

Justin Van Dette gave a presentation on the East York Hall of Fame starting with some history of East York as a borough. East York has one of the highest rates of volunteerism per capita. The East York Hall of Fame was formed after Justin attended the Leaside Sports Hall of Fame and started thinking about the number of former East Yorkers who are deserving of recognition.
Toronto East Rotary Club's Jeff Rayman speaks to our club about some of the atrocities in Guatemala by a Canadian mining company and how court proceedings have developed.  This case has set a human rights precedent in being the first time a Canadian company has been tried in their domestic jurisdiction for corporate liability internationally.  Jeff hopes to provide assistance for witnesses as they attempt to travel into Canada to provide their deposition.

Polio Anywhere is a Risk to Children Everywhere

Polio cases have declined rapidly since 1985, but the fight isn't over. Polio is a crippling and potentially fatal infectious disease, and for as little as $0.60, a child can be protected against the virus for life. If we don't finish the fight right now, more than 10 million children under the age of five could be paralyzed by polio in the next 40 years.
 
Since the global initiative began more than 30 years ago, Rotary and its partners have reduced polio cases by more than 99 percent worldwide. There are only two countries where the wild polio virus has never been stopped: Afghanistan and Pakistan.

It’s Achievable: 

There is no cure for polio, but the polio vaccine successfully prevents cases.
