Romford Rotary and its work across the world in partnership with the Rotary Foundation, our Rotary District 1240, and a network of Rotarian friends and colleagues in other countries.


The Rotary Club of Romford is justifiably proud of its extensive and on-going programme of humanitarian overseas aid; positive evidence that the Rotary spirit of cooperation and fellowship across borders remains alive and well in Romford as we continue to maintain and develop our close international ties in the coming post-virus years.   

The Club enjoys a strong international presence within its membership with our Club Rotarians representing, amongst other countries, India with 2 members, Lebanon, Romania, and France as well as enjoying a continuing and cordial social relationship with our twinned European Rotary Clubs in Bruay, France and Dendermonde, Belgium.

On-going personal medical assistance and advice given by club member Dr. Amar Vasireddy PHF who visits Chennai, India, on a regular basis to provide professional help in one of the world's Covid "hotspots".

 Provision of computer facilities to schools in Romania and Lebanon

Providing bunk beds for the Belgrove Primary School in Robo Kenya
Provision of SHELTER BOXES for many countries suffering chaos caused by natural disaster

Obtaining a Global Grant for assistance to an Indian project "Empowering persons with disabilities"

Support to the Syrian Refugee Crisis in the Bakaa Valley and the Help the Children campaign in the same area  

And from a little further in the past, one of our most memorable projects, when Romford Rotarians drove, on a number of occasions, a pantechnicon lorry across Europe carrying food, medicine and medical equipment to assist seriously ill children contaminated by the Chernobyl nuclear disaster.  

With the worldwide Rotary network there is a guarantee that aid gets to the right sources and with no deduction in costs.
