Donations in Kind (DIK) is a program supported by Rotary Clubs in Australia which grew out of the compassion and concern of returning overseas volunteers. This recycling and reuse program involves the collection, sorting, packing, dispatch and distribution of donated items to countries in need of these goods.

Many goods and products, for which organisations in Australia have no further use, are valuable commodities in needy countries overseas and in some regions within Australia.


Donations in Kind have developed a Donations in Kind facility to register consignments to overseas destinations. We request that all Rotary Clubs and Rotarians consigning containers or pallets of goods to overseas destinations use our Donations in Kind Depots and this facility.

The purpose of this facility is to record all consignments by Rotary in one place so that when shipping companies contact RAWCS looking for the consignee of a container we can direct them to the person responsible and supply any relevant documentation.
