In common with almost all the British people, the members of the Rotary Club of Rayleigh Mill are appalled at the events taking place in the Ukraine and are anxious to offer whatever help is possible to relieve the distress and suffering of the victims of the Russian invasion of their country.
UK Aid, Felsted (www.uk-aid.org) - since 2001, every eight months, UK Aid Felsted have been sending donations of supplies to the Revival Centre in the town of Chernihiv, Ukraine, in the area of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. The journey is 1,700 and costs the charity a minimum of £3,000 per trip. The cost is funded solely through people’s generosity. Since 2001, they have delivered 340,000 kg of aid to the Revival Centre. Since its inception in 1996, the Revival Centre has treated over 27,000 children. In the current war in Ukraine UK Aid Felsted will not venture into the Ukraine but left Felsted on 24th March in 3 trucks to deliver much needed supplies to Moldova where the donations will be used to ease the pain and suffering of the Ukrainian families who have been forced to leave their homes and family members behind in the wake of the Russian invasion. The Rotary Club of Rayleigh Mill donation will help to enable this vital work to go ahead.
In addition to support provided through the Disaster Response Fund, the Foundation is coordinating with partners and regional leaders, exploring effective solutions to the increased humanitarian needs. Rotary International has acted quickly and effectively to release funds from its Rotary Foundation charity to try to alleviate the refugee situation in Ukraine and the countries adjacent to Ukraine. In normal circumstances the Rotary Club of Rayleigh Mill, as do all Rotary clubs, donate to Rotary Foundation and, in the current humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, has responded by donating extra funds to the charity in the hope that it will help to to alleviate the suffering caused by the Russian invasion.
