Letter from Rotary District Governer Howard Cohen: “Help Rotary Help in the Ukraine”

Like you, I am deeply concerned about the crisis in Ukraine. As you know, Rotarians have been the champions throughout the world of “Breathing IN Suffering and Breathing OUT Compassion! One of the most direct, high-impact ways to Breathe OUT Compassion to help alleviate the suffering of Ukrainian citizens being displaced by the conflict TODAY is to donate today to Rotary International’s Disaster Response Fund

As one of the world’s largest humanitarian organizations, Rotary has made peace the cornerstone of our global mission. We are deeply concerned about the Ukraine crisis and need your help.

Rotary is made up of people of action, especially in difficult times. In response to the deepening refugee crisis, The Rotary Foundation Trustees have decided to prioritize contributions made to the Disaster Response Fund until 30 April 2022 to support disaster response grants for districts affected by these events. These expedited disaster response grants can be used to supply water, food, medicine, shelter, and clothing.

Half a million people have fled Ukraine and are in dire need of emergency aid. The United Nations estimates that the number of refugees could grow to as many as 5 million people displaced. Rotary clubs in Europe and around the world have stepped up their relief work, some working on the ground to help displaced families. Rotary District 5030 is working to consider using any available District Grant funds to contribute to this most important relief effort. Along with the District, please consider a personal and club donation to our Disaster Response Fund. Together, we can make a difference! Please support Rotary’s relief efforts today.

With your donation to our Disaster Response Fund, we can support communities and help rebuild lives during this tragic time.  Click HERE to donate now. 

Let’s join together TODAY to “Serve to Change Lives”

Yours in Rotary,

Howard Cohen

Rotary District 5030 Governor
