Rotary and our partners have made tremendous progress against polio, but eliminating all cases is going to take even more progress and perseverance. Afghanistan and Pakistan face unique challenges, including political insecurity, highly mobile populations, difficult terrain, and, in some instances, logistical barriers. With sufficient resources, the commitment of national governments, and innovations that improve access to remote areas, we are optimistic that we can eliminate polio.

At the Rotary International Convention in Toronto June 2018, Steve Bender, President of the Rotary Club of Newport Beach met with Mike Peers Past President and Rogelio Teran, President, of the Rotary Club of Playa Coronado to discuss the possibility of the Playa Coronado hosting a group of visiting dental professionals who would give a free clinic in Panama. This would be held under the auspices of Help in a Box, The Oral Hygiene Initiative and Ayuda International, anon-profit charity.  The object of AYUDA is to be actively engaged in and dedicated to improving and sustaining the oral health and social betterment of all underserved areas by providing assistance through treatment and training both within the United States and abroad.  The visiting team is self-financing hence there was no burden on our local, limited, resources.

COUNTERS DOWN - the math game that teaches students arithmetic and helps develop social interaction skills in a fun and entertaining way.
 
"Ever since calculators were allowed in classrooms, kids have lost their ability to add in their heads. Of greater concern is that with kid’s obsession with texting (even texting each other when sitting together in the same room!!!”) kids are losing their social interaction skills and are finding it difficult to have any real conversations” say Rob Brown, game creator and project leader of the Rotary Club of Coronado.

Goals are set by President Mike or Rotary International.  A reminder, there are 40 clubs in our district spread across 4 countries.  Today we have 19 members and within Panama, the Panama City Club has around 108 members, many of whom we suspect have slightly larger disposable incomes than us.

Who in their right mind would write a Broadway-style musical, set it in Panama in the Roaring 20’s, and with an all Panamanian cast and crew? Who would possibly think they could get the Panamanian Ministry of tourism, Copa Airlines, Ron Abuelo rum, and others to become sponsors? And then who could possibly have the sheer audacity to think they could attract the attention and assistance of big-time producers, songwriters, scriptwriters and others from Broadway and Toronto?

The Rotary Club of Playa Coronado identified a need in the Beaches Area of Panama to provide emergency medical aid that could sustain life in the event of a heart attack, either before the arrival of emergency services and/or whilst the patient is being transported to a hospital. Six automatic defibrillators were purchased. Two options are available, mobile defibrillator units which could be rapidly deployed or diverted to attend case, and fixed defibrillators in permanent locations, accessible 24 hours a day.  For the fixed units, the El Rey supermarket chain agreed to keep one defibrillator at the pharmacy within the store and since the stores are well known, accessible and open 24 hours they offer an ideal location.

“A Love Story with a Roaring Twenties Twist - think
Moulin Rouge meets West Side Story on the Panama Canal”

Panamá: The Musical takes place in the Canal Zone and Avenida Cuatro de Julio, in 1927. 

A young American songwriter is forced to leave the "Zone" when her father, an Army-contractor, dies, leaving the family heavily indebted to the local cabaret/casino. Suddenly forced to make it on her own in the dangerous streets of Avenida Cuatro de Julio, will she ever realize her dream of hearing her and  her Panamanian boyfriend’s songs on this new thing called "radio?"

Desparate, her mother secretly sells her music to the cabaret/casino owner in order to keep herself out of debtor's prison. After winning a radio contest to record her songs in New York, the cabaret/casino owner threatens her if she leaves he will force her thirteen-year-old sister to repay the debt working in the cabaret.

Can she live her dream and make things right for her little sister? Come and see for yourself!

First Public Defibrillators Distributed. 

Through funds raised by The Rotary Club of Playa Coronado and The Panama Helpline - six automatic electronic defibrillators are now available to keep our members - and the public - safer.  Before today the only defibrillators were in clinics (not open 24 hours) or ambulances (few and far between).

Two of the defibrillators are mobile units, to be dispatched by Panama Roadrunner vehicles. Simply call the Panama Helpline - 6599- 3122 - and a defibrillator is on its way - 24 hours a day. 

The cost for a Panama Roadrunner defibrillator delivery is $35 an hour - and if needed, the time it takes to transport you to the hospital or clinic of your choice. 

The other units are being kept at convenient locations for the FREE use of anyone in the area. Today we delivered the first public unit to El Rey Pharmacy in Coronado. Tomorrow we deliver a unit and train the staff at El Rey in El Valle. Next week to El Rey in Penonomé.

If anyone feels a potential heart attack coming on, the 24 hour pharmacy will allow them to use the defibrillators free of charge until an ambulance arrives.

The units are fully automatic (meaning all you do is press a button - if you need a shock, it will read your vitals and administer one - if you do not need a shock - it won't) 

All units have verbal instructions in Spanish (the mobile units have audio instructions in English). 

PHL will maintain the units and ensure the batteries are changed and the units are in working order.

Moved beyond words

 
Saturday was a wonderful day, for more reasons than I can count.

The Panama Helpline and The Rotary Club of Playa Coronado shared a table at the Community Police Appreciation Day event at Gorgona. 

It was sunny, (Hot) and very well attended. Expats and locals mingled together, enjoying music, table displays, costumed folkloric dancers, cheerleaders from Coronado International School, and a police against the community soccer game (note to self-never score against a guy that wears a gun to work every day) LOL...
