What is Rotary International?
Rotary International helps Rotarians to promote world understanding and peace through World Community Service and Rotary Friendship Programmes across the world.
In our own Club we -

raise funds for the purchase of Shelterboxes, which provide tents and basic supplies for areas which have suffered a natural disaster, or in in a war area; for more information visit http://www.shelterbox.org
supply local schools and organisations with Shoeboxes which are filled with toys then taken by Rotarians to orphanages in Eastern Europe;
collect old spectacles with are cleaned and graded by prisoners in Saughton before being taken to Africa where volunteer opticians prescribe then to locals;
support financially a group of local Nurses who visit Haiti regularly to immunise children and help in an orphanage.
