Meeting Report

The Rotary Club of Murray Bridge experimented this week with a Quiz Night on Zoom. Quiz master Rotarian Gordon Shultz led us through two sets of ten questions on Australia which proved to be lots of fun as well as a pleasant learning experience. An unexpected benefit over doing it live was the comments made by the participants which would normally only be heard by those nearby. It was good for member interaction.

Dear Supporter

It is a pleasure to share this update about treatment results at Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia with you.

We have so much to be thankful for.

In the six months from July to December 2021 Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia have changed the lives of more than 1,100 women.

This is thanks to their clinical skills and the steady support from people like you, our loyal donors and supporters.

Ethiopia is going through challenging times with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and upheaval.

With Dr Catherine Hamlin’s strong foundation, our loyal staff and your support, we have ensured the Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia Clinical team can provide continuity of medical services with minimal interruptions.

We are looking forward to striding ahead in 2022 with confidence, determination and teamwork.

Hamlin Fistula Ethiopia’s work to identify, treat and reintegrate fistula patients is only made possible with your ongoing commitment and support. 

Our warmest thanks

Carolyn Hardy
Chief Executive Officer
Catherine Hamlin Fistula Foundation

Dear All at Rotary Club of Murray Bridge,

Happy New Year! I have a feeling that 2022 will be extra special at The School of St Jude and I hope it is for you too.

On 29 January 2022, we celebrated our 20th birthday with a special event and, as I watched the speeches and performances, I had a moment to consider just how far St Jude’s has come. You have helped us reach many milestones since 2002 and I’m so grateful for your support.

Over the last 20 years, we’ve celebrated more milestones than I can list here, so if you’d like to hear about our history, we’ve rounded up our biggest moments in the newsletter. Also, you can read about our newest students, who recently received their brand new St Jude’s uniforms. Then, find out about our staff blood donors and the superstar student who inspired them to donate. Finally, hear what students and teachers had to say about the International Day of Education.


For some great listening, don’t forget to tune into our podcast! This episode features four of our longest serving staff members reminiscing about all their achievements at St Jude’s over the years. 

Wishing you a wonderful 2022,






Step back in time as we celebrate two decades of milestones. 

St Jude’s staff donate blood after being inspired by a primary student’s fight against leukaemia.

Wide smiles spread across the faces of the newest students on Uniform Day at The School of St Jude.

St Jude’s teachers and students share what International Day of Education means to them.

End Polio Now

In 1985 Rotary launched PolioPlus to immunize every child in the world against polio. Working with our partners and members of the global health community, together we will end polio.
Through the science of vaccines, Rotary & partners have saved nearly 19 million children from becoming paralyzed by polio. Learn more about our work to End Polio Now and how you can get involved: https://on.rotary.org/3eqtrrr

Rotary has been working to eradicate polio for more than 35 years, and we’ve made incredible progress in the fight to rid the world of it forever.

As a founding partner of the Global Polio Eradication Initiative, we've helped to reduced polio cases by more than 99.9 percent.

It’s crucial to eradicate polio from the last two countries where it remains endemic and to keep other countries polio-free.

If all eradication efforts stopped today, within 10 years, polio could paralyze as many as 200,000 children each year.

What is polio?

Polio, or poliomyelitis, is a paralyzing and potentially deadly infectious disease that most commonly affects children under the age of 5. The virus spreads from person to person, typically through contaminated water. It can then attack the nervous system.
