Ken Smith







There was once a strong young man who was offered a job as a woodcutter. He set about his task with energy: The first week, he turned 18 trees into firewood. The second week, he worked just as hard, but was surprised to find he had chopped only 11 trees. The third week, despite working nonstop from morning till night, the number was six, and he went despairingly to the foreman to offer his resignation. "I am losing my strength. I can no longer cut as many trees as I once could."

Australian Rotary Health

ARH is a typical Rotary story of one Rotarian’s dream becoming a successful reality. In 1981 PP Ian Scott, Rotary Club of Mornington, Victoria had a dream to establish a fund to research the mystery of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS). The research successfully led to a dramatic and sustained reduction in SIDS.

With the support of Rotarians, Rotary Clubs and Districts throughout Australia since 1985 ARH has allocated in excess of $33 million in research grants for medical research in Australia.
