How can You help Ukraine?
In response to the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, The Rotary Foundation has made available the Disaster Response Fund as the main avenue for contributions.
All Donations made online at Disaster Response Fund – My Rotary, Including the use of available district designated funds (DDF), need to be received by April 30, 2022. Grant applications to take advantage of the funds will be available now through June 30, 2022. This will be the main avenue for Rotary Foundation Support, but Rotary and Rotaract Clubs are also encouraged to create their own responses to the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine.
In addition to the support provided through the Disaster Response Fund, The Rotary Foundation is coordinating with partners and regional leaders, exploring effective solutions to the increased humanitarian needs. You will find a comprehensive list of projects at this link, with the contact details and websites.
Thank you for all that you do to promote peace.
