 Rotarians Against Malaria – an activity of Rotary Australia World Community Service (RAWCS)
Rotarians Against Malaria (RAM) is a volunteer-run organisation working to eliminate malaria. In 1900s, malaria was pandemic in the world. One can only imagine the burden of malaria disease to all countries. Progress has been made. Fifteen years ago, malaria killed a child every 30 seconds. Under the Millennium Development Goals, however, considerable progress was made in preventing, diagnosing and treating malaria. As a result, deaths have fallen by 60 per cent. Now, under the ambitious Sustainable Development Goals, we are aiming to reduce malaria cases and deaths by a further 90 per cent by 2030

The Rotary Club of Liverpool West will hold Pride of Workmanship Awards on Tuesday 27th October 2020.
Each year the club calls for nominations from the community of people who give that little extra in the performance of their jobs, it may be that little bit of extra help to customers, it might be for pride in their jobs. Nominees are invited to attend a presentation night with their partners and receive the award.
The Pride of Workmanship Awards are designed: -
  • To provide Rotarians and employers with an opportunity to recognise employees who display qualities worthy of this award.
  • To encourage favourable workplace relationships.
  • To instil a sense of pride in individual achievement.
The Club encourages members, local businesses and community members to consider nominating a local person who is a committed and enthusiastic employee or a local individual, who they feel, displays    "Pride in their Workmanship”.
The Pride of Workmanship Awards are NOT a competition and there are no winners or losers.  It is recognition by a Rotarian or employer of an individual’s achievement, commitment and ability to inspire his/her fellow employees or customers.
Vocational Service Director Russell Soedjadi distributed nomination forms to members and has more available. Nominations close on 6th October 2020
Our Members-only raffle jackpot will be $120!
The wine we offer for prizes has been ageing gracefully and our supply of exciting chocolates and mystery prizes are just waiting to be won.
We will conduct the raffle in a COVID SAFE WAY!
Trump took a quick trip to Rome to show his concern for the Pope:
 "I met with Pope Francis today. He's a really great pope -- great, great pope. You know he's the leader of the Catholic Church — big church. I couldn't believe it when he told me how many Catholics there are. Way more than I thought. They have churches all over the world; some are very, very close (so close) to my hotels and golf courses.
"He tells me he's elected for life, probably copying that Xi guy in China.  Fantastic idea, though. Fantastic.
"It turns out the Pope is a lot like me, you never see him with his wife.
He told me he's infallible. I said that's great, you'll never have to worry about breaking a hip. 
"And told me about a Mary Magdalene, beautiful girl, beautiful. I asked him for her number. Didn't catch his answer. I'm told he said it in Latin. I give the guy credit because he doesn't look Latino. 
"He took me into the Sistine Chapel. Beautiful ceiling. Not the usual white stucco stuff. I don't think too many people even know about this place. The paintings are great, I'm telling you. Lots of colours. The Pope (great guy; by the way, knows more about the Bible than almost anybody — we got along great, I think he really likes me) told me the whole thing was painted by this young Italian. I think he's from Los Angeles because his name is Mike L Angelo. At least that's what Francis (we're great friends) called him, I think. Trust me, we're going to hear more about this guy. He's really artistic, and everybody tells me I have the greatest eye for the best art. It's natural, just like my incredible understanding of science. All the renowned scientists say they can't believe it. 
"I told Frank I'd like to buy some of Mike's art. I asked if Mike's done anything on velvet. He'll check (great guy). I'll hang his stuff at Mar-a-Lago or Trump Tower. This Mike guy needs more exposure. He's too much with the churches. He could paint my presidential portrait on the Capitol Dome. Or maybe a mural on my big, beautiful border wall; but just on our side.

"When we left, the Pope gave me a bible. Huge book. Huge! I told him I have the full set. You get one for free every time you take someone to a hotel room."
