​​​​​Vietnam Health Cards

I am pleased to announce that Latitude 38 has just purchased 940 Health Insurance Cards for residents in Dong Thap Province in the south of Vietnam, that's 940 people who will not have to worry about paying for medical treatment for the coming year. Thanks to all of our supporters who made this happen. 

This year we exceeded our goal ( last January we purchased 800 cards in Dong Thap Province ) and we are thankful that we have been able to again support those in need in Vietnam. If you would like to support us on this ongoing annual project let me know. 

Water Sanitation and Hygiene ( WaSH ) - Siem Reap Province

Our club member in Siem Reap, Cambodia, Ms Sophanit, has been working with the Rotary Club of Gravenhurst, Ontario, Canada to build toilet blocks and hand wash stations at two schools. Omanoas Primary and Donkeo Secondary school are located 50 km and 40 km from Siem Reap, Cambodia. Both schools do not have enough toilets for the amount of students and the current hand wash stations consist of either a bucket of water and soap or none at all. As the project progresses I will post photos so you can see the good work that Rotary is doing in Cambodia. Big shout out to Gravenhurst Rotary Club

Can't make it to your local club meeting due to COVID-19 or other reasons? Do a makeup session with us or join one of our regular online meetings which are very easy to join via Zoom. 

See this page for more details or leave a message on our Facebook page and we can get back to you with more details and instructions if required. Feel free to donate via the makeup page if you wish as this helps support our projects.

With the impact of COVID-19 and how it affects developing countries like Cambodia and Vietnam it is now more important than ever that we continue to support and increase our fundraising efforts with these projects.

Now it's even easier to become involved with your local Rotary Club. Becoming a Friend of Rotary eClub Latitude 38 allows those who share our ideals and objectives to participation in our activities without the responsibility of full membership. Find out more information and how to become a Friend of Rotary eClub Latitude 38 here. 

What is an eClub? An eClub is like any other Rotary clubs: it carries out service projects, supports The Rotary Foundation and members connect with each other as well as with members of other Rotary clubs. The difference is that we connect regularly online, not necessarily at the same time but at a time that’s convenient to each member.

How does an eClub operate?
 
The eClub's website is the meeting place where the weekly meeting is posted (see below), club project details are displayed and regularly updated and suitable videos and other material is available to enhance your Rotary knowledge in the area of community service. Some eClub members also meet in person at service projects, social activities, district conferences or the Rotary International Convention.
 
What do I commit to as a member of the Rotary club of Latitude 38?
 
You will be encouraged to:
  • Work through the weekly meeting below and if appropriate make comments on the club's facebook page (this should take about 30 minutes each week);
  • Participate in club projects (see projects page), engage with a project of a local Rotary Club or local community organisation and tell the other members about it on the Facebook page;
  • Spend at least 12 hours a quarter on Rotary related activities;
  • Support the Rotary Foundation; and
  • Plan to attend an annual Rotary Conference or Rotary International convention.
Who can join an eClub?
 
Each eClub is based in a specific district but its members can be from anywhere in the world. Some eClubs focus their membership in a particular region or community.
 
An eClub could be right for you if you:
  • Have a busy schedule and need a flexible meeting time
  • Live in different places throughout the year
  • Travel frequently
  • Have limited mobility
We welcome your enquiry.

Membership of Rotary, like any other activity in life, works better if you have a personal plan about how to get the most out of it. At the beginning of every Rotary year (1 July), or at any other time, why not sit down and plan how you will maximise your membership. In an eClub this is especially important as we don’t have the impetus of a weekly face-to-face meeting to give us a “push along”.

Here are some suggestions. You may think of other things you might do.

·         Run your eye over Rotary Basics to refresh yourself about what Rotary is about.

·         Work through the weekly meeting on the website and make comments on the club’s Facebook page.

·         Make regular posts on the Facebook page and respond to posts already there.

·         Look at the club’s projects page to see what projects you might become involved in.

·         Commit to contributing $A100 to the Rotary Foundation during the year through the Centurion

          Program. The club can organise this for you.

·         Commit to attending the District 9820 Conference or the district conference where you live.

·         Make suggestions on how the club can work better.

·         Participate!
