Message from the RF(I) Chair

P.T. Prabhakar

Dear Rotarians,

April is the Maternal and Child Health month!

Every day mothers risk their lives giving birth and millions of children die each year from treatable, preventable causes. Through grants from The Rotary Foundation, Rotarians improve access to essential medical services for mothers and their children.
Let us further our commitment to provide education, immunizations, birthing kits, and mobile health clinics to support these causes.
In India, our Rotarians are not only contributing generously to the Foundation but also carrying out great work of the Foundation through Global grants and District grants.
As of 31 March 2021, India’s total Giving is USD9.09 million and 299 grants were approved worth USD26.18 million.

It has been an amazing achievement which demonstrates our determination to support TRF despite all odds! We are in the month of April and also in the last quarter of the Rotary year, wherein we receive the maximum contributions towards RF(I).

Although, our total giving is on the rise but I sincerely request each and every one of you to increase your contribution to APF, which will replenish the world fund, which, in turn will help TRF to distribute more district / global grants.

I would like to conclude by saying that, it is our foundation and let us do our best to support TRF.

Thanks & Warm Regards,
P.T. Prabhakar
RF(I) Chair
