As we turn another month over on the calendar, it not only draws us closer to Winter and the end of another Financial Year. May is also a time to celebrate the only home-grown program recognised by the Australian Rotary Club themed calendar; Australian Rotary Health (ARH). Of the 1,136 Rotary Clubs in Australia, 95% have supported the work of ARH by:
ARH has expended over $33 million on research into SIDS, Bowel Cancer, Breast Cancer, Motor Neurone Disease, Diabetes and a variety of health areas for over 31 years. In 2000, they directed
funds into Mental Health research; as 45% of the Australian population will suffer a mental illness during their lifetime and it is now a leading cause of disease burden in our country.
Will you help us?
As the Financial Year comes to an end, we encourage all Rotary Clubs to consider making a donation to the work of Australian Rotary Health. Your funds will be used to help us improve the lives of those least able to assist themselves.
