Rotary International Convention from Atlanta Georgia (Aired on October 21, 2017 and October 22, 2017)

Atlanta 2017 Rotary Convention, part 4 (Aired on October 21 & 22, 2017)

Some 35,000 Rotarians from around the world came to the Atlanta Rotary Convention, but somehow the RadioRotary team of Jonah Triebwasser, Sarah O’Connell, and Kathy and Dave Kruger keep running into Rotarians from back home, including District 7210 Governor Jim Damiani and a Past President of
Jonah’s Red Hook Club, Sue Simon. The RadioRotary team also learned of fascinating projects from other American Rotarians, including the prospect of even more collaboration between Rotary International and the U.S. Peace Corps and a vision screening projct for elementary schools undertaken by the Cincinnati
Rotary. The Chicago Far North Rotary is working to bring specialized water carriers, called hippos, from South Africa to places in Haiti that lack access to running water.

Atlanta Rotary Convention, Part 2 (Aired on September 23 and 24, 2017)
RadioRotary interviewers at the 2017 International Rotary Convention in Atlanta,
Georgia, interviewed several project leaders attending the convention. In this broadcast, you can learn about Project Chimps from Lindsay Vanderhoogt, the Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) from Rotarian Knut Johnsen (Greater Newburgh), the Russia-United States Intercountry Committee from Rotarian Charles Heberie; Rotaplast from Rotarian Donna Lee Young Rubin (PSG District 7930, Andover, MA), and the Rotarian Action Group for Hepatitis Eradication (a.k.a. Hepatitis Zero). Project Chimps put former laboratory chimpanzees into retirement in a wooded section of Georgia; RLI teaches Rotarians how to be better in their Rotary lives; the Russia-United State Intercountry Committee promotes peace between the two nations; Rotaplast provides plastic surgery to children (mainly) with cleft palate; and Hepatitis Zero is taking a specially equipped truck around the world to test individuals for hepatitis C, which now can be medically cured.

U.N. SHOW # 1 (Aired on Jan 21 & Jan 22)

Rotary Day at the United Nations (Aired on January 21 and 22, 2017)

The annual Rotary Day at the United Nations each year brings together some
1,500 Rotarians along with various youth groups and representatives of
humanitarian organizations who work with Rotarians. For this program,
RadioRotary interviewed Mitch Kahn from ShelterBox; Rotarian Steve Goldsmith
(Hawthorne LAX Lennox Rotary) and Prabha Sankaranarayan from Mediators
Beyond Borders; and Rotarian-wannabe Anna Abraham representing The Gift of
Life, Inc. ShelterBox, whose emphasis is disaster relief, is now a Rotary Project
Partner. When Mediators Beyond Boarders looked at their members, who work
for peace between individuals, tribes, and nations, they discovered that a quarter
of its membership is Rotarians. The Gift of Life, which specialized in providing
pediatric cardiac care to children in places where such help is scarce, frequently
partners with Rotary clubs or districts in their work. Ms. Abraham’s group within
The Gift of Life works in Lebanon, currently focusing on refugees from the Syrian
Civil War. All met at the United Nations to exchange ideas about how to do good
in the world.
