December is Disease Prevention and Treatment Month
 
We believe good health care is everyone’s right. Yet 400 million people in the world can’t afford or don’t have access to basic health care.
 

Disease results in misery, pain, and poverty for millions of people worldwide. That’s why treating and preventing disease is so important to us. We lead efforts both large and small. We set up temporary clinics, blood donation centres, and training facilities in underserved communities struggling with outbreaks and health care access. We design and build infrastructure that allows doctors, patients, and governments to work together.

Rotary Wheels for Learning

Rotary Wheels for Learning (RWFL) is an international humanitarian project led by the Rotary Club of Gravenhurst. In its tenth year, the project’s aim is to provide bicycles to impoverished children of Cambodia so they have the opportunity to attend school. As most rural children in Cambodia have to walk great distances to school, they simply cannot attend without the aid of a bicycle. Shortcuts through fields and jungle offer the prospect of encountering long forgotten landmines or poisonous snakes.

To keep the costs low, and to support the local economy, the bicycles are purchased in Phnom Penh (the capital city of Cambodia), then transported out to the remote villages where our team assembles them for the children. 

The goal this year is to be able to distribute our 10,000th bicycle since the project started.  To achieve this, they need to raise 622 bicycles. While a bicycle seems trivial, I can personally attest that this simple act of kindness can truly be a life changing experience for the child who receives it.

A $50.00 donation will provide a gently used bicycle with a basket, bell and light to a deserving child. 100% of your donation goes towards the purchase of a bicycle. After each distribution, they will be sending out emails with pictures of the children who have benefited from your generosity and kindness. You will also receive a tax receipt for your 2022 income tax deductions. To help support this project click Donate to RWFL
