Rotarians support overseas projects

Rotarians from Clubs in the North of Scotland support many projects overseas.    Our clubs work directly with Rotary clubs and communities around the world to provide sustainable clean water and sanitation systems, fight hunger and disease, improve literacy and education, enhancing maternal and child health, and help to grow local economies.

When natural disasters, such as earthquakes, typhoons or floods occur around the world, Rotarians are usually among the first people to take action.  We organise collections and raise money for the various charities that are best equipped to provide relief for those in need.  Through our support for survival kits such as ShelterBox, AquaBox and Disaster Aid we help to provide the basic essentials required in an emergency situation. 

Rotarians educate and mobilize communities to help prevent the spread of major diseases such as polio, HIV/AIDS, and malaria. Our members from the medical professions use their expertise to run overseas clinics. These include providing prosthetic limbs and glasses etc. to those in areas of the world where these items are desperately needed. 

Information about some of our projects can be found by clicking on the International Service, Rotarian pages button, with other information available via the Foundation and Youth Service Rotarian pages buttons.
