The Rotary Club of Westlake-Bay Village enriches our community by donating time, talents, and funds to organizations in our community and around the globe. 
July is Maternal & Child Health Month at Rotary International, a time to support initiatives that make health care available to mothers and children so they can live longer, grow stronger, and have a brighter future.​​​​​​
 
Rotary makes high-quality health care available to vulnerable mothers and children so they can live longer and grow stronger.
 

We expand access to quality care, so mothers and children everywhere can have the same opportunities for a healthy future. An estimated 5.9 million children under the age of five die each year because of malnutrition, inadequate health care, and poor sanitation — all of which can be prevented.

Rotary makes amazing things happen, like:

  • Providing a fully equipped medical Jeep to volunteers and midwives to reach mothers and children in Haiti to reduce infant mortality rates.
  • Funding a mobile cancer screening unit and awareness trainings around Chennai, India, where there is a high mortality rate of women with breast and cervical cancer due to late diagnosis.
  • Repairing obstetric fistulas in 1,500 Nigerian women, restoring dignity and hope to vulnerable mothers.
