ROTARIANS AGAINST MALARIA ( RAM)
Over a pleasant evening meal recently we heard from an amazing Rotarian, Dr Bruce Anderson, a Career Scientist, & now, National Manager for RAM.
 
Superbly qualified to take us on the Malaria journey, Bruce shared some startling facts about this devastating disease. 77% deaths from Malaria occur in children under 5 years. Infection rates & deaths have increased during Covid as there has been much disruption to services.
 
RAM was initiated in 1995, and global partners include WHO, Australian Universities, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation... Their aim is to prevent mortality and decrease morbidity, reduce the social and economic losses caused by Malaria through  progressive improvement and strengthening of local and international capacities in malaria elimination.
 
RAM is looking for ongoing financial support to provide coordination and advice on Malaria elimination projects, and more.
 
Preston Rotarians are proud RAM supporters!
