International Service and Disaster Relief
Rotary activity throughout the World
As well as supporting the local and national needs, Rotary also has a commitment to the International community. Disaster relief is needed all too often and help is provided mainly through Shelterbox, Aquabox and Disaster Aid. These are all Rotary partner organisations and are often one of the first relief agencies on the scene of disasters and natural catastrophes.
We also support Marys Meals, Rotary Sand Dams to Africa and Micro finance schemes throughout the world. Rotary throughout the world has been a major supporter of Polio eradication; Clubs in Great Britain have donated in excess of £20m. See the current position at End Polio Now.
An annual street/supermarket collection is undertaken around Skipton to help fund our disaster relief work. If you wish to become involved in our International work or would like to know more please contact Peter Warburton - see link below.
