National Flood Relief Appeal

MEDIA RELEASE

Australian charity, Rotary Australia World Community Service, today announced the creation of a national Flood Relief Appeal for people impacted by the current floods in Queensland and Northern NSW.

Australians impacted by the recent floods will be the beneficiaries of money raised by Flood Appeal and will be able to liaise with their local Rotary Club to advise of their needs.

The fundraising campaign was launched today to support the communities in need after yet another disaster impacting Australians. “The money raised from the Appeal will go directly and quickly to support those impacted, providing essential items and financial support where Disaster relief and Insurance claims won’t stretch,” said Rotary Australia World Community Service Ltd CEO Andrew Woodward.

“The number of disasters Australians have endured in the last few years in addition to the pandemic have been significant and left a lot of people in very difficult financial positions,” Mr Woodward said.

Rotary Australia World Community Service has previously raised money for Bushfire and Drought affected areas and sees this disaster as just another where the network of Rotarians can step in to assist.

Mr Woodward said that he expects the money to help people with the things that insurance or disaster relief funds cannot replace. Whether it be helping farmers build new fences or providing food and clothing to those that have lost everything, the money raised will be crucial in helping families get back on their feet as soon as possible.

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.

Tax Deductible Donations to the appeal can be made on the Rotary Australia World Community Service website at https://rawcs.org.au

PRESS RELEASE – Rotary Foundation – Ukraine

The Rotary Foundation has launched a worldwide appeal to support the Ukrainian people
affected by the current fighting in their country.

From now until 30 April 2022, all donations to the Foundation’s Disaster Response Fund will
be made available to the Rotary District in Ukraine and to designated Rotary Districts
bordering Ukraine sheltering refugees from the war-torn country
.

From now until 30 June 2022 those Rotary Districts will be able to access this Fund to apply
for disaster response grants to purchase items such as water, food, shelter, medicine and clothing.

The first Rotary club was established in Ukraine in 1929. During and after WW2, Rotary
International made a decision to suspend Rotary activity in the Ukrainian Occupied
Territories. The first post-war Rotary club was established in Kyiz in 1991 and Rotary has
grown throughout the country since then. Rotary is also well-established in neighbouring
countries particularly in Poland where many refugees have fled.

In 2021, local Rotary clubs established a Rotary Peace Square in Kyiv.
Rotary volunteers on the ground in Ukraine and these neighbouring countries will be able to
use the funds raised to help the suffering Ukrainian people.

Those wanting to make a donation can google Rotary Foundation Australia and click on the
Ukraine link on the homepage. Donations are tax deductible.

For more information, please telephone Maurie Stack 0427 668 821 or Mark Anderson 0408 622 698.
