Ways to help

Dear Club Presidents and other Rotary leaders,

I have been asked by District Governor Margaret Walton to share the attached document with you.  A number of Clubs and individual Rotarians have been asking for information about what one can do when Haiti and Haitians have once again been traumatized by a force of nature. I have put together some information and a number of ways clubs and individuals can take action.  Click here for "Ways to assist the people of Haiti". If you have comments or questions please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours in Rotary Service,

Dawn Straka,
Director, Service Projects

Nearly 1.4 billion employed people live on less than $1.25 a day. Our members promote economic and community development and reduce poverty in underserved communities through training, well-paying jobs, and access to financial management institutions. Projects range from providing people with equipment to vocational training. Our members work to strengthen local entrepreneurs and community leaders, particularly women, in impoverished communities.

As those who attended the Rotary Weekend in April are aware, at the end of that weekend we cut off registrations at 350 due to concerns regarding the capacity to seat people at the Saturday Masquerade and the farewell brunch on Sunday.  We have now arranged with the resort to accommodate more people, and therefore have been able to re-open registrations.
