Hamburg Rotary International Convention, Part 4 (Aired November 23 and 24, 2019)
RadioRotary interviewers visited the 2019 Rotary International Convention in Hamburg, Germany, where they found many Rotarian groups and other Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) doing good in the world. This radio program, the fourth in a series, covers a few of these projects. Roots of Life deals with land that has been planted with land mines, which linger long after wars have passed, and replants the land with grape vines, growing grapes for wine, raisins, or food, which not only helps save lives but also provides economic benefits to farming communities. Gift of Life offers life-saving surgery to children who were born with congenital heart disease. Both organizations work with Rotary to connect around the world. The Rotarian Action Group (RAG) Against Slavery helps rescue the millions of people still enslaved, often for sex but also by businesses, and offers programs to rehabilitate them for a life of freedom. There are many locations where the Don’t Meth With Us Foundation is fighting drug abuse—primarily methamphetamine but also opioid addiction. War Child, which has independent branches in the United Kingdom, Holland, and Canada, supports all young children who have been affected by armed conflict, with education and safe zones around the world.
