We have started our term on the right track. DG Odie seized the idea of paying particular attention to the needs of people with disabilities hindered by poverty.
It is an opportunity to open the doors of Rotary to reach out to the unreached. This promises to be the trend in our Rotary year.
Morning of July 1 – DG Odie together with Pasay Transformational Presidents headed by SDG Maya Ciriaco with spouse PP Raymond, DS Kat, SDG Edwin and Physician for Peace headed by PDG Lyne Abanilla went to Missionaries of the Poor in San Andres Bukid Manila for the Governor’s kick off Mobility Project.
In cooperation with Physicians for Peace PDG Lyne gave a talk about the Mobility Project and DG Odie was able to provide wheelchairs for the disabled. DGE Odie also provided pillows and mattresses for the children with cerebral palsy and for the elderly while the Transformational Presidents from Pasay area donated basic needs and financial aid to provide comfort to the disabled.
All in all, it was a meaningful start of our Rotary year. Thank you again for your time and full support.
