A passion for podcasting to tell the world about the great things Rotary is doing.

There are over 155,000 square miles of Ukraine covered in landmines. It will take at least seventy years to remove them. We must keep the children safe. And you can help.

Join us live from Ukraine to meet the people that are saving children’s lives in the middle of the invasion.

The Rotary Club of Kharkiv Nadiya (Hope) in Ukraine and the Rotary eClub of the State of Jefferson in Oregon are working to mark the mined areas with signs. This hidden danger is killing and maiming the children and farmers.

Kharkiv is near the front line. It is on the border with Russia and is one of the areas most affected from the very first days of the invasion.

We are going to meet with the teams in Kharkiv that are visiting the children in the hospitals, the experts who are in charge of this program, the soldiers who are risking their lives to put up the signs and the mothers and children they are protecting.

There is so much need in Ukraine; it’s hard to decide where to start. Buying signs is something that is so simple and inexpensive and will save lives. For as little as $3.00 US, you can buy a sign. The Ukrainian military will take your sign and mark the dangerous areas.

As Bob Gibson, President of the eClub says, “I would rather pay three dollars for a sign today than pay for a prosthetic leg for a child tomorrow.”

Please join us on September 20 at 11:00am Pacific time for this engaging webinar. Experience live what it is like to live in a war zone from the people who are there.
