There are two other Rotary clubs in Chichester: Chichester (City), who meet at lunchtime and Chichester Harbour who meet at breakfast time. There are also many other neighbouring clubs within West Sussex . Each club tends to support projects within their own local area, so if you live in a different area, you may want to contact one of the other clubs for support, in which case look at the District Website.
ROTARY APPEAL for Deadly Earthquake that struck Ecuador
Rotary Hits The Ground Running
In The Wake Of The Quake
The Three Rotary Clubs of Chichester arranged emergency collections on Friday 22nd April and Saturday 30th April at The Market Cross in Chichester, following the deadly earthquake that had struck in Ecuador, claiming hundreds of lives and reducing buildings to rubble. The citizens of Chichester were so generous and donated £1,300 to this appeal.
Through the Rotary organisation we have direct contact with the Rotary Club of Quito Valle Interoceanico in Ecuador within the region to help us to respond in emergencies like this and purchase much needed emergency water purifying equipment. The donations received have been wired directly to this Rotary Club for their immediate use to help those poor people so badly affected by this disaster.
The deadly 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Ecuador on 17th April. More than 650 people have been confirmed dead and more than 7,000 people injured. More than 150,000 children have been affected and are in danger. These numbers will rise as we receive more information.
Homes, schools and health centres have been destroyed. Reports include children being rescued from the rubble of collapsed buildings. More than 200 aftershocks have been reported.
The situation is evolving rapidly and the number of casualties is rising. When devastating earthquakes like this strike, children urgently need clean water, life-saving food and health care to survive.
Your donations will provide emergency water and hygiene kits for families affected by the disaster.
