Rehabilitation International Asia & Pacific Regional Conference

26 (Wed) to 28 (Fri) June 2019, Macau

Rehabilitation International (RIG), founded in 1922, is a global organization and network that empowers persons with disabilities and provides sustainable solutions toward achieving a more inclusive society for them.  It has much linkage with Rotary.  Edgar Allen, the founding president of National Society for Crippled Children (forerunner of RIG) was a Rotarian in Ohio, USA.  The rehabilitation movement in the early days was attributed to the support of Rotary Clubs. Paul Harris was to call the “crippled children movement the most illustrious offspring of Rotary.” Paul Harris himself served as the first Chairman when International Society for Crippled Children (now RIG) was established in 1922.

To celebrate the journey together over the past 100 years, a plenary session during the Rehabilitation International Asia & Pacific Regional Conference is dedicated to showcase the rehabilitation service projects that Rotary Clubs in District 3450 have carried out.  DG YC Ho will be moderating the session.  We are now calling for club presidents and Rotarians to participate in conference and the plenary session.
