Donations in Kind (DIK) an activity of Rotary Australia World Community Service Limited (RAWCS) grew out of the compassion and concern of returning overseas volunDIKAug16-1teers. This recycling and reuse program, focussing on health & education 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.
Refer to Acceptable Goods Guidelines 2018

Donations in Kind have developed a facility to register consigndik2ments 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.
