ROTARY TAKES ACTION FOR Republic of Türkiye, Syria and New Zealand
RAWCS has commenced fundraising activities to support the impacted communities resulting from the Turkey and Syria Earthquake and the New Zealand Floods.
Rotary Australia World Community Service Ltd (RAWCS) will work with local and international Rotary networks to facilitate the distribution of funds raised.
The fundraising campaign was launched last week to support the communities in need as these disasters continue to cause significant loss.
“The money raised from the Appeals will go directly and quickly to support those impacted, providing essential items and financial support to supplement the funds that are being provided by World Governments,” said Rotary Australia World Community Service Ltd CEO Andrew Woodward.
Rotary Australia World Community Service has previously raised money for the Ukraine and sees this disaster as just another where the network of Rotarians can step in to assist.
Mr Woodward said that he expects the appeals to not only raise much needed funds, but also specific goods, including medical equipment and supplies that can be repurposed in the affected areas.
Rotary Australia World Community Service is a not-for-profit charity that aims to be the leading Australian charitable organization for people’s wellbeing, supporting Rotarians and Rotary Clubs undertaking humanitarian projects in Australia and overseas.
