Haiti Disaster Response Ideas From Rotary Foundation

Rotary’s Response to the Disaster in Haiti

 

Rotary clubs and districts worldwide are mobilizing resources to deliver urgently needed relief to the millions affected by Haiti's devastating earthquake. Watching the ongoing earthquake coverage has been heart wrenching and the needs of the Haitian survivors appear overwhelming. A huge response has come from Rotarians everywhere.

 

There has been an outpouring of monetary donations to the Rotary Donor Advised Fund (DAF) and the District 7020 Haiti earthquake fund as well as shipments of emergency supplies. Rotarians from the Haitian clubs are on the ground assisting with the immediate relief efforts. It touches me greatly to hear about the quick response of Rotarians, who stand always ready to help those in need, regardless of what we may get in return.

 

I wanted to provide you with some useful weblinks on Rotary’s response to the earthquake in Haiti along with an article at the end of this email that my boss has written for her district’s newsletter.
