Rotary Club of Wallingford, Sinodun and District
Home | International support
Advancing world understanding and peace,which is expressed in the fourth part of the Object of Rotary, is an important focus of Rotarian service.
International service promotes worldwide goodwill. It is the impetus for numerous service efforts and other cooperative ventures among Rotarians from different parts of the world. It is the reason Rotary International has a long-standing, close collaboration with the United Nations and many of its member agencies.
International service offers many opportunities to make a difference to the lifes of others across the world.
Those that have little food, safety, shelter, warmth, family and other things that we can sometimes take for granted.
As Rotarians locally we have taken the opportunity to:
- Support the distribution of emergency boxes,
- Promote the benefits of water filtration units
- Deliver a clean water project with a new bore hole in Africa
- Volunteer our free time to projects in third world countries to bridge the gap of world understanding.
Rotarians of different race, creed and custom, when brought together in fellowship, play an important part in breaking down prejudice and developing true international understanding.
