January 2018 saw an exciting development for the Rotary Family Health Day Programme in Southern Africa.
The International Board of RFHA Inc (Rotarians for Family Health and AIDS Prevention – a Rotarian Action Group and custodian of the Rotary Family Health Programme) agreed to the restructuring of the locally registered South African entity, RFHA SA NPC, to have more autonomy in the management of the Rotary Family Health Days Programme.
The new RFHA SA NPC’s name change is inclusive of all Rotary COSA (SADC) countries in Southern Africa who wish to participate in the RFHD Programme in the future.
An Executive Director and three local Directors of each Rotary District in South Africa have been appointed.
- PDG Anton Meerkotter (D9400)
- PDG Greg Cryer (D9370)
- DG Lynette Stassen (D9350)
- Sue Paget – Executive Director
PDG Sandra McKersey, a long-standing RFHA Inc Board member, will be the RFHA Inc representative on the local entity.
Great support for the Programme was shown at the recent Rotary COSA (Council of Southern Africa) leadership conference in Harare, Zimbabwe.
We are grateful for the support and look forward to working with all Partners to expand the Programme in Southern Africa.
