Rotary Club Of Murray Bridge Projects

Overview Of Current Projects

 
The Rotary Club of Murray Bridge is always looking for projects to "Do Good In The World". Rotary Internaltional has identified seven areas of focus and these help us to deterrmine the direction of our efforts.
Whether this is on a local or global scale we aim to serve our broader communities and help those in need.
 
Power Of Music On The Brain
One of our current projects is named "Music For Dementia". This project has been identified as a real need in Australia and our Club has purchased headphone sets which are battery powered and are loaded with music which the recipient has requested or family have identified as appropriate. When the recipient plays the music, it seems to bring back memories to the extent that some people get up and move for the first time in years, speak or communicate with the loved ones or carers.
This project seems to unlock parts of the brain which have lain dorment.

Birthing Kits
Recently members of our Club assembled 200 birthing kits in conjunction with Zonta International (sister service club) & Birthing Kit Foundation Australia.
The vision of Birthing Kit Foundation is "A world in which all women and girls have access to a clean and safe birth"
The Rotary Club of Murray Bridge acknowledges the women in developing countries who do not have access to a safe and clean birthing environment and are proud to have provided these kits helping to provide a safer birth for these mums.
