Rotary District 6600 Governor Diana Savage asks us to increase our impact.
As one of the largest clubs in Rotary District 6600, District Governor Diana Savage told Lima Rotarians that we have the opportunity to have an even bigger impact in our community and on the world. She told us that we are already doing a great job. "You are a very giving club in terms of your time, your talent, your service, your monetary donations. You are very close to hitting the $1 million mark in scholarships given away. That is amazing for a club of your size. Thank you for the work you do to make Lima a better place each and every day, to have that collaboration and that positive impact, not only in this community, but in communities across the world." Diana told us that ways we can do that include growing and diversifying our membership, building awareness of what we do and how we help our community, enhancing engagement among our members,  and opening ourselves to new opportunities. District 6600 is here to help us crate lasting change with resources, seminars, leadership, committees, and other opportunities.
We need your help to eradicate polio.

Oct 24, 2022 is World Polio Day and that marks the kick off of the October Polio Plus initiative in the Lima Rotary. As you know, the Lima Rotary joins Rotarians from around the world in an effort to eliminate polio. The vaccine is 99% effective if given fully. The worst forms of polio cause paralysis and there is no cure. This means that prevention/vaccination is the best proven course of action. Please join Rotarians around the world and donate to the polio plus campaign. Any amount is greatly appreciated. 

To see how devastating polio can be, please watch this link.

Global Congress
Rotary is working to finish the fight against malaria.
The two-day Congress brings respected malaria experts, governments, NGO's, corporates, Rotarians and non-Rotarians together in Melbourne, Australia; to share, educate and discuss how to Finish the Fight Against Malaria. Malaria is treatable and curable, yet a child still dies of it almost every minute. This is the tragedy we must stop together.

“The Global Malaria Congress in Melbourne Australia comes at a very critical time. COVID diverted resources from previously progressing major malaria programs and added pressure to already fragile health systems in high malaria burden countries. At the moment one child every minute every day is dying from malaria somewhere in the world. The Congress is an opportunity for the malaria community; governments, organizations, and individuals to refocus on the actions and investment needed to avert its catastrophic impact in communities.”
Lady Roslyn Morauta, Global Fund Vice-Chair. Keynote speaker.

Pedal Against Poverty
Here's your opportunity to bicycle around New Zealand to raise money for Rotary.

When was the last time you went on a bicycle ride? The answer is probably never or it's been a while. Or you might be a cycling enthusiast, looking to push yourself to your limits. Either way, Pedal Against Poverty is one of the best cycling challenges and experiences that we would like you to take part in.

Our passion for fighting poverty is strong as ever. Now that Covid restrictions have lessened we’re pleased to announce our 2022 Pedal Against Poverty NZ/US Tour is happening over November and December.

Our New Zealand crew will be cycling the length of the North Island. For those in Texas, they’ll be taking up the cycling cause on the day the Kiwis finish. Next year, we aim to add Australia to our tour route.
Our goal is to raise $50,000. This will enable us to build ten blocks of toilets, giving at least 4,000 children to have a much-improved sanitation environment at school. Each toilet block will have guttering on it and a 2,000-litre tank where students can wash their hands.


What we need now is for your rotary club to partner with us to achieve this. Thus, we are reaching out to all our Australian Rotary family and asking for clubs to make a $500 donation towards our cause.
100% of donations go directly towards projects and we prove where your money goes via photos and videos. Clubs are also given recognition through names on a plaque.
By testing yourself to the limit, you’ll raise money for building school toilets in rural East African schools. And also, you will have a wealth of experience to look back upon in future with pride.

So what are you waiting for? Stop stalling, and sign yourself up for the cycling challenge or sponsor someone today. HERE
