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

  • Celebrate DEI- Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
  • Freedom to express ourselves differently but still with a special connection
  • Purple- Polio

The virtual cafes will provide a collegial space to connect and chat about shared experiences.
 
Each cafe will be facilitated by two members from the Global Nurses & Midwives Rotary Club who have been trained in the cafe facilitation process.
