– IPDG Kenneth gave an inspiring and touching talk on Rotary Organ Donation Project progress after its launch in HK about a year ago. It’s theme ‘ LOVE.HOPE’ will be extensively promoted with launch of new website iSaveLife.hk, mobile application for organ donation, famous artist Tsang Tze Wa as ROD ambassador ,OCTOPUS card and ROD Action Groups in HK . The Organ Donation Forum in Guangzhou on Mar 19/20 will kick off a series of collaboration efforts between China and HK to call for organ donors to save life.
We were also shared by Janet and Shaun on the much higher level of organ donors in USA partly facilitated by the ease of becoming an organ donor whereby when one applies or renew a driving licence on the machine, there is a button to confirm as a donor . Then the driving licence will automatically print ‘ organ donor ‘ on it.
– President KC reported that the UK Summer Camp student selection was complete and he together with PE Kevin, PP Ip and HS Elizabete met the two students ( F4 and F5 , a boy and a girl ) at St Paul’s School in the afternoon and were impressed. The School also welcomed our club’s proposal to start a mentorship program for a group of their high grade students which will involve some of our Rotarians.
