GOOD NEWS STORY OF THE WEEK
UCT Professor Kelly Chibale has been named as one of Fortune magazine’s 50 World’s Greatest Leaders for 2018 and we couldn’t be prouder.

Professor Kelly Chibale, the founder and director of ‘H3D’ Africa’s first integrated drug discovery centre, has been named one of Fortune Magazine’s ’50 World’s Greatest Leaders’ for 2018.

He is currently a UCT Professor and has grown H3D into a world-class centre. The centre, located at UCT, has more than 60 researchers. The centre also offers space to around 30 postgraduate (MSc and PhD) research students and postdoctoral fellows from his academic group.

His facilities are state-of-the-art, thanks to various partnerships with the Gates Foundation‚ Medicines for Malaria Venture‚ Novartis and the South African government. The facility mainly focusses on drugs to combat Malaria and TB. Professor Kelly’s goal is to create drugs that can be used and avoid the human body from becoming drug resistant.

A soldier in the war on polio
‘There are many polio warriors in Rotary, ” RI President Ian H.S. Riseley remarked at a fundraising dinner for End Polio Now in January, addressing the 400 attendees who filled the banquet hall of a hotel just south of Denver.
 
“But none are more loyal or dedicated than Grant Wilkins. … Together, with 1.2 million of his closest friends from around the world, and their partners, we are on the threshold of greatness.”
 
C. Grant Wilkins, who sat at the table in the front row with his wife of over 50 years, Marlene, took the comments and the following ovation in stride. At 91, he walks with a slight stoop but still drives, travels, speaks, and maintains a busy schedule. He may not have universal recognition as a man who has helped save millions of lives, but he is. 
MEETING DUTIES
If you cannot do your job on the day, please find someone who can do it instead of you, then contact the Sergeant on the day to update the roster. Please don't leave this until the Monday afternoon – let the Sergeant know in advance if you have not been able to arrange a swap. If you are going to be away for particular future meetings let Shelley Finch know.
