The Rotary Foundation helps make health care available for hundreds of orphans in Uganda.
Rotary's top priority is the eradication of polio, but our members take on far greater responsibilities to fight disease. They set up health camps and training facilities in undeveloped countries and in communities struggling with HIV/AIDS and malaria. They also design and build the infrastructure for doctors, nurses, governments, and partners to reach the one in six people in the world who can't afford to pay for health care.
Disease prevention and treatment takes on many forms, from supporting studies to helping immunize people to improving drinking water and the sanitation infrastructure. The world relies on Rotary to tackle these global challenges, and to set an example for others to follow.

Haiti and Hurricane Matthew
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
