The Global Power of Rotary

Rotarians worldwide have contributed more than $18 million for disaster relief in supplies, services, and cash.  This included $2 million from the Haiti Earthquake Relief Fund, a Rotary Foundation donor advised fund that supports long-term rebuilding efforts.  The fund distributed $10,000 for a major cholera prevention effort run by Rotary District 7020.  (taken from The Rotarian magazine, April 2011)

Rotarians around the world continue to make donations, aiding and solving problems in every corner of the globe.  You can help support humanitarian efforts by becoming a member of a local club like the Merrimack Valley Rotary club.   Membership is all about the contacts you meet along the way and how you can make a difference here and abroad.  Want to learn more??  Click on the What's Rotary link in the sidebar and then join us for a meeting!
