Rotary Makes a Difference! Here are a few examples of projects in which our district is/has been involved both locally and internationally.
TV star Ade Adepitan sums up, in a few seconds, the important role Rotary has played in overcoming polio - a disease which he contracted in childhood.
Rotary has been instrumental in assisting the Taunton East Development Trust in Halcon over the last three years through provision of the board of trustees, alongside volunteers, and using Rotarians' skill mix including strategy, risk management, finance, legal and project management to address specific needs of residents, be they legal, financial or around disability. In addition there has been provision of daily volunteers to manage enquiries at the Link Centre, and signpost people appropriately. Sustainability of the project is vital: Rotary's three year financial commitment and negotiations with key financial stakeholders help to underpin the charity’s future.

The standard water survival box is designed for a family of five who have lost their homes and all their possessions following natural or man-made disaster.
1st priority is the water purification kit – to protect against water-borne disease.
● Boxes are packed with a set of new contents.● All boxes are identical. This speeds up the customs inspection process.● Water Survival Boxes are consigned to the local Rotary Club, local Red Cross Society, or handled by locally based representatives of international aid agencies.● We aim to get the boxes to survivors of disaster as soon as possible after the event to protect against water-borne disease.
