"It is said that every minute of every day Rotary will
touch the lives of millions somewhere in the world"
For the most part the truth of that
statement is attributable to the Humanitarian work that Clubs and Districts
carry out around the world, often using grants from The Rotary Foundation
(Rotary's own charity). There are 4 words in Foundation's Mission Statement
which sum up the core purpose of our charity: 'World Understanding and Peace';
we seek to achieve this through our local, national and international
projects. When one group of people reaches out to help another group, we
help to build friendships and understanding between nations.
