  7. 7. Rotary stands as one of the oldest humanistic organizations which is driven by service above self motto. We put the refugee situation into four way test: -Is it fair to all concerned? -Is it the truth? -Will it build good will and better friendships? -Will it be beneficial to all concerned? And we have decided to “turn on our heart” and do a Syrian refugee children project based on health concerns and needs of the refugees. RCNY Syrian Refugee Children Project
