Why Members have joined...

" I have worked in a few countries where I have seen a great need for medical assistance and the shortage of trained medical staff to meet the health needs of locals. 
Joining and being part of Global Nurses and Midwives Rotary Club (GNMRC) is a great privilege to be able to reach people globally where empowerment can be achieved through the provision of basic human needs such as:
  • Clean drinking water in rural and remote areas
  • Prevention of communicable diseases through immunisation programmes.
  • Education to empower the next generation through change.
Joining the GNMRC allows me to participate actively to achieve these goals with my fellow global nursing colleagues." - Priscilla
"The foundation of our profession is based on collegiality and fellowship.  I have joined the Global Nurses and Midwives Rotary Club to share a global experience through networking that the group has to offer. 
The roles that we play in communities earns us the highest trust levels of any profession. Sharing our experiences and knowledge between each other better equips us and enables us to continue to be the cornerstone of healthcare world-wide. 
There is not a human on this planet that is not touched or cared for by a nurse and or midwife. I want to meet you and share our stories." - Shelley

Imagine Rotary, the theme for 2022-2023, explained by incoming President Jennifer Jones

The theme graphic was designed by an Australian indigenous artist to link with the Melbourne convention in 2023. Circle - connections to one another
  • Dots around it - Our People
  • There are 7 Dots because of our Rotary’s 7 areas of focus
  • Circle + dots around it - Navigation star, our guiding light
  • Green solid line - digging stick (used when doing hard work)
  • for us it’s People of Action, represents the tools for getting things done
  • Colours: Purple, Green & White 
  • Celebrate DEI- Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
  • Freedom to express ourselves differently but still with a special connection
  • Purple- Polio
  • Green- the Environment
  • White - Peace

Represents Empowerment and Newness and also the colours were utilised for the women's movement giving us the opportunity to grow our female membership.


Turkish  Student Nurses Fundraising
The Turkish Nursing Association (TNA) is a professional organization representing and advocating for nurses and the nursing profession in Turkey.
Since the devastating earthquake in Feb 2023, the President of the TNA has told us of the immense hardship and losses that their members have suffered.
Many student nurses have lost family members, their homes and the ability to complete their Nursing studies.
With this in mind, the Global Nurses and Midwives Rotary Club encourages our Nursing colleagues and Rotarian family to assist us in raising funds to help our devastated Turkish Nursing students in need.
