U.N. Day- Humanitarians around the World Feb. 19, 2010
RadioRotary presents a compilation of on-site interviews with humanitarians from around the world, recorded at Rotary’s United Nations Day. Guests include Hudson Valley Rotarian Bunnee Webb, discussing polio eradication worldwide, and a representative from the ShelterBox response team, a Rotary affiliate. ShelterBox responds instantly to disasters that leave people homeless by delivering aid to those who are most in need. Each ShelterBox supplies an extended family of up to ten people with a tent and essential equipment to use while they are displaced or homeless. Other interviews include representatives from school service clubs sponsored by Rotary clubs: Interact, a high school service club for young people ages 14-18, and Rotaract, a college service club for young professionals and students ages 18-30. Both provide young people with opportunities to train for leadership and to promote international peace and understanding through service.
