Jonah Triebwasser conducting an interview

This is the last edition in a series of seven inspiring broadcasts taped at Rotary International’s 2013 Lisbon Convention, where in June thousands of Rotarians from around the world convened to discuss their humanitarian work. In each of the seven broadcasts, Jonah Triebwasser, co-host of RadioRotary, interviewed humanitarian leaders whose organizations save lives through various forms of medical and nutritional support. In this last broadcast from Lisbon, interviews include representatives from Walking for Water, Anti-Prostitution, Rotary Rhinos, and the Jaipur Limb Project (inexpensive artificial legs, developed at the Mahaveer hospital in Jaipur, India, especially providing help for those suffering amputations resulting from our turbulent world). The bonus in this last broadcast is the interview with Rotary International’s 2013-14 President, Ron Burton, whose motto for this Rotary year is: Engage Rotary. Change Lives.
