We expand access to quality medical care, sanitation, education and economic opportunities so mothers and their children can live and grow stronger.
Rotary makes high-quality health care available to vulnerable mothers and children so they can live longer and grow stronger.
HOW ROTARY MAKES HELP HAPPEN
Rotary provides education, immunizations, birth kits, and mobile health clinics. Women are taught how to prevent mother-to-infant HIV transmission, how to breast-feed, and how to protect themselves and their children from disease.
