More than just financial support

Rotary’s worldwide credentials show that we get things done… and not just through donations. One good example is a little girl in New Guinea who desperately needed an operation to repair a hole in her heart. Rotary Club of Brookvale organised flights, surgeons and accommodation, which resulted in saving this young girl’s life. Similarly, we’ve twice sent a team across to Koroipita Village in Fiji to help significantly improve life of many homeless Fijians. Rotary International has been entrusted with donations of close to half a billion dollars from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to help eradicate Polio worldwide.

SHINE for Kids – March 2018

We agreed to contribute to the request by SHINE for Kids, to assist in helping children whos parents have been imprisoned, and are in need of support and guidance.

Australian prisons are currently operating at 122% capacity. As a direct result there are over 60,000 at-risk children who are in desperate need of the support SHINE for Kids program provides.
