End Polio Now

Our club along with Rotary Clubs around the world have been working to eradicate polio for more than 35 years. Our goal of ridding the world of this disease is closer than ever.

Rotary members have contributed more than $2.1 billion and countless volunteer hours to protect nearly 3 billion children in 122 countries from this paralyzing disease. 

Today, polio remains endemic only in Afghanistan and Pakistan. But it’s crucial to continue working to keep other countries polio-free. If all eradication efforts stopped today, within 10 years, polio could paralyze as many as 200,000 children each year.



Our club has been financially supporting Shelterbox for many years.  Shelterbox provides emergency shelter to families who have lost their home to disaster, whether it be earthquake, floods, fires or conflict.  The big green box enables people to rebuild their lives.


Rotary Australia World Community Service (RAWCS)

For many years our club has had the support of Rotary Australia World Community Service with projects starting in New Guinea in the 1970's, through to Nepal and Timor Leste.  Currently our club is sponsoring Sexual Health Education by Pictures, an initiative of current club president Shirley Hayes. This visual course in anatomy, family planning and STIs,  provides PowerPoint presentation slides to assist teachers and nurses.


Donations in Kind

Rotary Donations In Kind (DIK) is a major recycling operation that gives suitable goods to people in need, for free.  For a number of years our club has sourced items such as hospital beds, wheelchairs, school desks and chairs from local schools and Moruya and Batemans Bay Hospitals.  All goods are transported to DIK warehouse in West Footscray, Melbourne for distribution to developing countries around the world.
