Rotary Ireland Statement
In order to expedite the delivery of relief supplies, Rotary Ireland is collecting funds from our members, Clubs and concerned donors. Please get this message to your club members, as we know there are many who may wish to make personal donations.
Both RI and RGB&I are working to establish the most effective way to use relief funds and it is intended that funds raised now in our District will be forwarded to our partner, the Shelterbox Trust, to expedite appropriate temporary housing in the area.
Donations can be made immediately by card to the District relief fund.
We have 72 great Rotary Clubs in Rotary District 1160; encompassing the whole Island of Ireland, stretching from Mizenhead in the southto Malinhead in the north. We are 1,675 men and women; all having fun whilst serving our communities and making a difference worldwide.
We like to meet people, socialise and have fun together whilst doing good in the world.
We apply our leadership and expertise to solve social issues. We raise funds and manage projects both locally in our own communities and also overseas to promote peace, alleviate poverty, support education, fight disease, provide clean water and address poor sanitation.
Since the mid eighties Rotary, together with the World Health Organisation and other partners, has also been at the forefront of the battle to eradicate polio from the world.
"Rotarians are ordinary people who go that extra mile to help other people and in the process widen their circle of friends and enhance their social life"
Rotary is not just a club that you join. It is an invitation to endless opportunities. Rotary opens opportunities for you to serve in a project as big and historic as End Polio Now and also in a small community project, where you just plant a tree. ... Everything we do opens another opportunity for someone, somewhere.
If you think Rotary could be for you we would love to hear from you soon. learn more here & contact us
On 25th August the WHO declared the Africa Region Polio Free.
By raising funds for polio eradication, advocating with world governments and national and local leaders, holding events and fundraisers for World Polio Day, and raising awareness, Rotarians in the African region and around the world have made an indelible impact in the fight to eradicate polio.
The eradication of polio has been the number one project for Rotary over the past 30 years.
1. Polio mainly affects children under age 5.
2. There is no cure, but polio is preventable with a vaccine.
3. Only two countries continue to show new cases of wild polio virus
4. We’ve reduced cases by 99.9% since 1988.
5. Until we end polio forever, every child is at risk.
Pakistan has resumed the polio drive after a four-month pause due to coronavirus outbreak.

Fifteen other children have been paralyzed by polio since the outbreak started. As we approach World Polio Day this year, we are celebrating the heroes who have been working tirelessly to combat polio in the Philippines.
