A stamp to honour TRF

To commemorate the work done by TRF as it celebrates its ­Centennial, the Pakistan Government has come out with a commemorative Rs 8 postage stamp on November 20. In its letter, the Director General of Pakistan Postal Services said this was “a tribute to celebrate and ­recognise the services rendered by The Rotary Foundation to humanity at large for the last 100 years”.

District 3272 DG Mir Arif Ali said the stamp and the First Day ­Cover had been issued to ­recognise, in ­particular, TRF’s immense ­contribution in ­providing clean water, saving the lives of ­mothers and ­children, ­supporting education and growing local ­economies by enabling ­employment and ­creating ­“opportunities for decent and ­productive work for young and old, strengthening local ­entrepreneurs and community ­leaders, ­particularly women, in impoverished  ­communities around the world.”

He added that the commemorative stamp was designed by his spouse Mahru, a member of RC Lahore Model Town, and it would go a long way in enhancing Rotary’s public image.
