As a community-based organization made up of business and professional leaders, Rotary is working through its clubs at the grassroots level to provide aid and assistance — both immediate and long term — to those impacted by these disasters. Examples of early Rotary relief efforts include: • Life-saving shelter, food and medicines to those impacted by the 7.6 magnitude earthquake that struck Sumatra Island on 30 September. Rotary clubs in Australia and New Zealand donated 10-person tents containing blankets, water purification, cooking equipment and other essentials in cooperation with ShelterBox. An international disaster relief charity supported by Rotary clubs around the world. • Food, water, shelter and clothing to those impacted by Typhoon Parma in the Philippines, which slammed into the country on 3 October. Local Rotary clubs distributed 700 relief packs composed of rice, sardines and instant noodles, and 300 ShelterBox tents were set up in the country’s mountainous northern region. • Emergency relief to victims of a tsunami, which struck the Samoan Islands on 30 September, following a series of earthquakes. Two-hundred Emergency Response Kits, each containing basic necessities such as blankets, food, clothing, cooking utensils and tools, toiletries, medical supplies and even candles and matches. Rotary clubs in New Zealand partnered with Air New Zealand to donate these kits – worth a total of US$55,200 in aid. Rotary clubs in New Zealand are also running an appeal for disaster relief funds.
