International

Our International Committee raises funds both for disaster relief and for development projects in 3rd world countries.

Medecins Sans Frontiers

For disaster relief we usually work through well-respected international charities such as Medecins Sans Frontieres (www.msf.org.uk). The courage with which their doctors and nurses provide medical aid in war-torn disaster zones has commanded admiration throughout the world.

Shelterbox

We also support Shelterbox (www.shelterbox.org) which was founded by a Rotary Club in Cornwall but now operates throughout the world. It provides tents, blankets, water purification kits, cooking pans, plates and basic tools - all the basic needs for families made homeless in a disaster.


Development

For development projects we prefer to identify small-scale schemes in the poorest countries where our contributions can make a real difference. We have supported the reconstruction of a Health Post in an earthquake-hit part of Nepal with the aid of a 3H Global Grant and are currently supporting the expansion of a school in rural Gambia. 

Water Aid

We also contribute towards Water Aid (www.wateraid.org.uk) whose projects provide clean drinking water in remote areas of very poor countries.

Like all Rotary Clubs we make our fund-raising fun. We have a programme of quizzes, lunches and summer garden parties, all as enjoyable ways of raising funds for these vital international projects.
