Sue Paget, programme director for Southern Africa Rotary Family Health Days, writes:
As the programme director and on behalf of our chief executive officer and president, Alicia Michael, the Rotarians and myself, I would like to express our sincere and deepest appreciation yet again for your [Caxton Local Media’s] extraordinary support of the 2017 Rotary Family Health Days throughout South Africa last week.
The involvement of Caxton community newspapers in the national campaign as our primary print partner was invaluable in not only mobilising our communities to attend the health days, but also in profiling the important partnership between private sector, government and civil society in a common call to action.
The value add of placing our advertisement and editorials pro bono in your newspapers was so important. Some of the coverage I have seen has been fantastic. We acknowledge the vital role that you play behind the scenes.
It is too early to have a clear indication of our impact and reach but there have been some phenomenal stories that have been shared across the country and literally thousands of people have been served. We will share our final figures and reports with you once all reconciliations have been done.
The Rotary Family Health Days simply would not have succeeded positively in South Africa without your dedicated input. For this, we thank and applaud you and look forward to a continued partnership next year.
