RIBI Donations Trust (International Disasters)


Rotary GB&I Donations Trust

The Rotary GB&I Donations Trust is a registered charity which was set up in 2007, initially to administer the appeal for the 2007 UK floods and the money remaining in the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami appeal fund.

The purpose of the charity is to respond to international disasters in the reconstruction phase following the disaster. It is not intended as an emergency response fund which is covered by many other charities and organisations, well equipped to provide immediate relief.

The charity is administered by six trustees who are all Rotary GB&I members, who are responsible for all activities and funds. Operational and financial services are provided by the Rotary GB&I Secretariat.

The Rotary GB&I Donations Trust aims to provide funding in areas affected by these disasters for sustainable projects within these communities. This ranges from constructing and equipping school and community centres, replacing lifeboats to providing new rescue vehicles.

The UK Flood Appeal attracted support from super model, Naomi Campbell, who hosted a Fashion Relief event whereby the clothes on show were auctioned off to raise funds. In one evening, over a million pounds was raised.

If you would like to donate to any of the Rotary GB&I Donations Trust appeals, please send your cheque, made payable to Rotary GB&I Donations Trust, for the attention of the Rotary GB&I Finance Department at:

Kinwarton Road
B49 6PB

Please mark your contribution with the relevant appeal fund details, or indeed make contact with a local Rotarian.

On Pakistan

Rotary GB&I President Jim Moulson has launched an 'Rotary GB&I International Disaster Appeal". Monies donated to the appeal will be earmarked for Pakistan, for long term sustainable projects.

The immediate need is for food, clean water and shelter. Rotarians have responded, as often they do, by supporting the box projects Water Survival Box, Aquabox, ShelterBox LifeBox and Life Straws.

Please continue to support these vital projects.
