Rotary is a global network of 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.
Solving real problems takes real commitment and vision. For more than 110 years, Rotary’s people of action have used their passion, energy, and intelligence to take action on sustainable projects. From literacy and peace to water and health, we are always working to better our world, and we stay committed to the end.
Rotary members believe that we have a shared responsibility to take action on our world’s most persistent issues. Our 35,000+ clubs work together to:
- Promote peace
- Fight disease
- Provide clean water, sanitation, and hygiene
- Save mothers and children
- Support education
- Grow local economies
Club activities, social events, and volunteer projects offer networking opportunities that build personal and professional connections. And Rotarians can extend those networks by visiting other clubs around Australia and the globe.
What We Say About COVID 19
We helped hospitalize COVID-19 patients, many terminally ill. by purchasing ‘tablets’ and gave them to 18 hospitals and nursing homes, allowing more than 1,500 patients to see and talk to loved ones. As part of the project, classical musicians also gave virtual concerts that soothed the patients.Rotary Club of Milano Europa
