Rotary Club of Century City Cape Town Health Projects

Dr. Aaron Motsoaledi, the previous Minister of Health called on all sectors of society to respond to the crippling quadruple burden of disease affecting the health of our country.  “We have to ensure that coverage of our services for prevention as well as treatment, care, and support, together with their quality, improves in every corner of our country.  The Key will be to improve the involvement of communities in the planning and implementation of solutions. ”

 Enter Rotary International. As an organization that, through community service, seeks to improve the lives of people within our local communities, Rotary International developed the Rotary Family Health Days and these take place in many countries throughout the world. Right here in Century City, the local Rotary Club of Century City partnered with the Century City Home Owners Association, to bring Rotary Family Health Days to our doorstep.

Rotary Family Health Day

The Rotary Family Health Day was a huge success this year, despite it having to start a day later due to some unfortunate protests - but better late than never! We think the photos speak for themselves - and just look at those stats! A huge thank you to all of the wonderful sponsors who made the day happen - there are just too many to mention, but we are ever so thankful to them all.
