Foundation & International
Wantage Foundation & International Committee looks after our efforts to help when natural disasters strike around the world. The committee further oversees a variety of international humanitarian projects to which we offer financial support.
The Foundation & International committee provides support for key charities working in areas of human hardship around the world. Many of these charities have an organisational base in and around Wantage. Our work includes donations for ongoing health, water provision, social and educational projects and we are always ready to provide a fast fund-raising response in the event of a sudden natural disaster. We also commit to several ShelterBoxes and WaterSurvival boxes each year, which are then shipped out to areas in need.
We enjoy a close relationship with our two sister Rotary Clubs based in Walsrode Germany and Zaltbommel in the Netherlands. Such a collaboration means we are able to manage larger scale international co-projects with support from the Rotary Foundation, the global charity of Rotary International.
In addition to the committee’s international focus, we are active in helping with all the Club’s activities in supporting the local community.
