Our key-note speakers next Monday are from the Auckland Health Foundation -  Gwen Green is the CEO and Hannah Davies their Fundraising and Marketing Manager.  This recently established organisation goes beyond what is presently funded in the healthcare system and through donations, financially supports projects, research and education for adult health services, which have the capacity to transform healthcare.
 
The following is a report from District 9970 Governor John Driscoll and the three nearest Rotary Club President’s to the 15 March attacks in Christchurch:
 
We are all in shock here and trying to get our heads around how the events of yesterday could happen.  The real impact is going to come in coming days as people learn about the individuals killed and maimed and the effect of that on others.  The three clubs with areas of Christchurch involved have launched an appeal.
DG John & Alison
 
Dear Fellow Rotarians,
I know you will all join me in utterly condemning the senseless and cruel events of yesterday.  Rotary is about building communities, not tearing them down and we must act accordingly in our response to this attack.  Please join with me in supporting the appeal detailed below by the Presidents of the three clubs with areas most affected.  Rotary can and must demonstrate its primary purpose in the days ahead and always....doing good in the world.
John Driscoll
DG 9970
 
From the Club Presidents......
There are no words to sufficiently express the enormous sense of sadness and outrage regarding Friday's events and the immense impact this has had on the local Muslim communities in the areas of the Riccarton, Linwood-Woolston and Ferrymead clubs and on our wider community as a whole.  At an appropriate time in the near future we will seek to make contact directly with local leaders in the Muslim community to see how Rotarians can offer further support.
 
In the meantime, we can act now by making a significant donation to a Rotary fund that has been set up to support the victims of this devastating attack.  We are asking all clubs within our district to make a donation towards this fund, which will be made as a joint donation and message of support from all Rotarians in our district.  We also condemn in the strongest terms the base values and attitudes directed towards our migrant community who have just as many rights as we all do to live life free from violence and prejudice. Those values are a complete anathema to the values of Rotary.  Please support this appeal generously by clicking on the donation button below.
Yours in Rotary
Shane Murdoch- President, Riccarton
Theresa Shaugnessy-President, Linwood/Woolston
Barbara Crooks- President, Ferrymead
 
The account number for the fund being managed by the Riccarton club is:

Each year, Rotary awards up to 100 fully funded fellowships for dedicated leaders from around the world to study at one of our Peace Centres.  Through academic training, practice and global networking opportunities, this program develops the fellows into experienced and effective catalysts for peace.  The fellowships cover tuition and fees, room and board, round-trip transportation, and all internship and field-study expenses.  In just over a decade, the Rotary Peace Centres have trained more than 1,200 fellows. Many of them now serve as leaders at international organizations or have started their own foundations.  The 2020 Rotary Peace Fellowship application is now available and we need your help to find the next cohort of experienced global peace and development leaders!  Candidates have until 31 May to submit applications to their District and Districts must submit endorsed applications to The Rotary Foundation by 1 July.  General inquiries regarding the fellowship program may be sent to rotarypeacecenters@rotary.org.

The Rotary International's 2019 Convention will be held in Hamburg, Germany from 1 to 5 June.  There are already nearly 30 people from different NZ Clubs attending, including RCA President Brett O’Riley and myself.  If you’d like to know more about this event and are possibly interested in joining us, would like to fly with and/or stay with other NZ Rotarians in Hamburg, let me know or reach out directly to the District Coordinator for this Convention: Jennie Herring: herringjennie@gmail.com  Or if you would like to register, then please go here.  If you register prior to Dec. 15, 2018, you will receive an early-registration discount, which is US$395 vs. US$495 or US$595 at later dates.  District Governor Ingrid Waugh, also mentioned the possibility of a 10-day “Zurich-to-Amsterdam Cruise” leading up to the convention  and Jennie Herring can help us get the black shirts that all the NZers wear - which will really make us stand out!  So please let us know if you are interested in attending, so we can organise a couple of fun Kiwi/RCA activities, while in Hamburg!  And also feel free to run any questions by us
