Rotary’s network enables rapid humanitarian relief for Ukrainian refugees

By Rotary International

The war in Ukraine is having devastating consequences on civilians as families flee their homes. According to the United Nations, more than 5 million people, most of them women and children, have sought refuge in neighboring countries and across Europe, while about 7 million more people have been displaced within Ukraine.

Rotary and Rotaract clubs in Europe and around the world have taken swift action and are working with members nearby to provide food, water, medical equipment, and shelter for refugees.

The Rotary Foundation has created an official channel for Rotary members and other donors around the world to contribute funds to support relief efforts underway by Rotary districts. The Foundation has designated the Disaster Response Fund as the main avenue for this.

The fund, to date, has received more than $10.4 million in contributions.

World Immunization Week

World Immunization Week is celebrated annually on the last week of April.  The aim is to highlight the collective action needed and to promote the use of vaccines to protect people of all ages against disease. For Rotarians, this week is an opportunity to raise awareness for polio eradication and the importance of funding the essential End Polio Now expertise in vaccination campaigns, disease surveillance, social mobilization, and outbreak response.

We chose this week as the culmination of our PolioPlus Society launch because of World Immunization Week and TriCon 2022. We want the society members to wear their lapel pins this weekend. Please join your fellow 6270 Rotarians and Rotaractors in providing ongoing financial support to end polio now and join the PolioPlus Society today. You can join at or scan the QR code above with your smartphone.

Rotary Projects Around the World - Portugal

Editors Note: This is one in a series of articles highlighting Rotary projects around the world.

Making the best of a pandemic lockdown, six members of the Rotary Club of Estoi Palace International gathered fabric, thread, and needles to crochet or knit 120 teddy bears. In December, the club distributed the handiwork to a children’s home and a center for people with disabilities. “COVID has inspired us to find different ways to raise much-needed funds,” notes Club President Shirley Dunne, “so our members came up with the idea of crocheting ‘Happy Bears.’” About $1,900 also was collected to help fulfill the “wish lists” of the two local beneficiaries.

Program Description

Gun violence is an uncontrolled epidemic raging across Wisconsin and the United States, harming all of us in one way or another. It does not have to be this way; gun violence is preventable.
