Rotary Disaster Fund
Introducing our new Disaster Response Fund
When disaster strikes, Rotarians around the world come together as people of action to help those in need.
To support communities in their rebuilding efforts, The Rotary Foundation is proud to announce our new Disaster Response Fund.
Donations to the Disaster Response Fund help Rotary clubs provide disaster recovery and support relief efforts where the need is greatest by funding and providing access to disaster response grants.

World Immunisation Week 24-30th April
The week 24-30th April is World Immunization Week! Spread the word about the work Rotary is doing to end polio.
In 1988, polio paralyzed 1,000 children every day. Last year it paralyzed just 33 children. Only two countries continue to report polio cases.
Rotary’s progress in the fight to enpolio shows that vaccines work.
Through the effort to end polio, we now have found better ways to immunize children against diseases like measles, Ebola, and yellow fever.
