- Rotarians reach out to assist after earthquake
Dear Rotarians :
We are deeply saddened to learn of the recent earthquake in
Indonesia. We are touched by the commitment of Rotarians to assist
the communities affected by this disaster, which has taken the lives
of more than 5,000 people and left thousands homeless.
RI's International Service Programs section is continuing to provide
information regarding club and district relief efforts on the RI Web
Additional club and district relief efforts will be posted on the Web
site as they are reported to RI. Please continue to check the Web
site regularly regarding opportunities to assist those affected by
the disaster. Rotarians wishing to contribute funds, donated goods,
or both, directly to club and district relief projects may visit the
Web site for opportunities to work with Rotarians in the affected
As always, we encourage you to work with organizations such as UNICEF
and the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent
Societies, Doctors Without Borders and grassroots Rotary projects,
ShelterBox and Aquabox, to meet the immediate needs of victims
affected by the disaster.
Thank you for your continued commitment to helping those in need and
in demonstrating Service Above Self.
Frank Devlyn, Trustee Chairman
