Our clubs are able to work directly with clubs in disaster hit areas across the world to assess what aid is needed and we can be sure that money raised goes directly to those in need. Projects range from providing water and sanitation, disease prevention, literacy projects, education, building schools, hospitals, water wells and growing local economies through sustainable development.
When disasters such as earthquakes, typhoons or floods occur around the world, we are quick to respond through our support for survival kits such as ShelterBox and AquaBox, which provide the basic essentials required in an emergency situation.
Rotarians from the medical professions use their expertise to run overseas clinics. These include providing much needed hearing aids, glasses and prosthetic limbs to those in areas of the world where these items are in short supply.
We also send out young adults aged 18-30 on the New Generations Service Exchange programme to work on some of our many projects around the world.
