Dear friends,
The current situation is very tragic.
The two successive and big earthquakes along with the aftershocks have been effective in 10 cities where more than 13 million people live. This is one of the biggest disasters of the geography we are living in leaving a huge destruction and debris.
So far 8500+ deaths were reported, 50 thousand casualties (as of today 33,000). Many people were saved but the hopes for the way too many under the rubbles are diminishing every minute. The freezing cold makes it hard to survive and the lack of electricity, natural gas and accommodation is a major problem for the survivors.
The government has declared state of emergency. The army has been given a role to help the rescue teams. 36 hours have already passed after the first earthquake, less voices are being heard from the rubbles as the time is running.
Currently we are sending generators, tents, winter cloths, diapers, hygienic peds, food, water and fuel. Also we have sent several excavators and similar construction vehicles. We have 4 Rotary centers in the region in Adana, Osmaniye, Gaziantep and Malatya where we provide either accommodation, food or both. We are in touch with Shelterbox their team is arriving tomorrow. SOS has already came with generators and tents and on their way to Elbistan, epicenter of the earthquake. In the meantime we are accepting donations to our District accounts for the future rehabilitations.
We as the 3 districts in Turkey are now applying commonly to the disaster response grant. We have also opened accounts for other donations, please find them above. Should any Rotarian or club would like to donate they are more than welcome.

RAWCS - Supporting Our Mates Across the Ditch
Earlier this week RAWCS commenced fundraising activities to support the impacted communities
resulting from the New Zealand Floods.

Unfortunately, in recent days the floods have worsened due to the impact of cyclone Gabrielle.
RAWCS is calling on Rotarians to support our New Zealand neighbours by donating to the New
Zealand appeal (details below).
By contributing to the RAWCS appeal Australian Rotarians can
receive a tax deduction and support our neighbours who have been an amazing support in recent
years when Australians were in need with floods, fire and drought.

CONNECTIONS is a new service for the members by the members of District 9810 and offers a free service for anyone wanting to advertise their business in Rotary.
This usually involves members scanning in their business cards and sending them through to the Webmaster along with their preferred business website and business category.
CONNECTIONS offers District 9810 members, family, and friends:
  • Publicise businesses and activities organized by connections on the district website
  • Invite Rotarians in the district to speak and store their videos for virtual meeting, or district workshops talking about their business and related service work
  • Seek out Rotarians who are outstanding in their professions or are enthusiastic about a hobby and encourage them to advertise on CONNECTIONS.
So, from jam to jumpers, cleaning to computers, we want your mainstream or hobby business added to CONNECTIONS:
