Greeting to Rotarians, Rotaractors, Interactors, family, and friends.  April is designated as Maternal and Child Health month, appropriately so as we prepare to celebrate Mother’s Day in May. 
Rotarians worldwide are actively engaged in a multitude of humanitarian efforts to provide a higher quality of healthcare, better living conditions, food security, proper nutrition and education for mothers and children.  Rotarians collaborate with local leaders, governmental and nongovernmental health service organizations, and many other partners to help identify and address these most pressing community needs. 
With the support of The Rotary Foundation, we seek solutions to address the lack of or inadequate health care services, poor sanitary conditions, hunger and malnutrition.  Working together, we can ensure that families live longer and grow stronger with the peace of mind and a renewed hope knowing that they are not alone.
