Rotary Humanitarian Aid for Ukraine – Mar 2022

In response to the deepening humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, The Rotary Foundation has created an official channel for donors around the world to contribute funds to support the relief efforts underway by Rotary districts and has designated its Disaster Response Fund as the main avenue for contributions.

To this end, The Rotary Foundation has approved from through 30 June 2022, designated Rotary districts that border Ukraine and the Rotary district in Ukraine may apply for grants of up to $50,000 each from the Disaster Response Fund. These expedited disaster response grants can be used to provide relief to refugees or other victims of the crisis including items such as water, food, shelter, medicine and clothing.

Being able to use the pre-existing structures of Rotary Clubs in Ukraine and in countries around the Ukraine border provides a rapid way to get aid to where it’s really needed on the ground.

Banbury Rotary Club is pleased to support this and is thankful to the generosity of the people of Banbury for almost £1000 in contributions  last weekend
