International Projects

Royal Leamington Spa Rotary also supports a number of international projects:

  • Precious Sisters of Kenya - Our club sponsors Susan Kinuthia, a pupil at Bishop Gatimu boarding school in Naivasha in Kenya. Since Covid caused closure of all Kenyan schools last May, she re-enters her final year again in January 2021, hoping then to proceed to university.           (see Photo.)
  • Shelterbox - ShelterBox is a UK based international disaster relief charity that provides emergency shelter and other aid items to families around the world who have lost their homes to disaster or conflict.
  • Aquabox - Aquabox is another UK charity that distributes aid boxes to countries around the world
    suffering from natural or man-made disasters. Each Aquabox contains water purification filters as well as items of humanitarian aid to help a family group get access to clean water.

    Donations for the provision of both Shelterboxes and Aquaboxes were sent in October 2019 to relieve suffering on islands in the Caribbean devastated by Hurricane Dorian together with assistance for their difficult transportation.
  • Sightsavers UK - A donation was made to help this charity’s 3 -year programme of work in the two areas of Mongoro and Singida in Tanzania to eradicate Trachoma  eye infections which are causing painful blindness in many of the population.
  • Rise against Hunger - We plan again to assist with this food-packing event that supplies high quality nutritional meals for the starving in Africa, to take place in Coventry in March 2021 (Covid permitting.)
