Past RI Director Paul Knyff brought a message from RI President Ron Burton.
There were presentations by:
Angela Gorman – “Life for African Mothers”. Her work was summed up when she asked “Why is it acceptable for women in Africa to die during childbirth, if it is not acceptable in Europe”.
David John, “Prostate Cymru,” who graphically explained Prostate cancer and encouraged all the men to get a check-up.
Congratulations to District Governor David Curtis and his team for organising a superb conference.
