Example Projects from RAWCS Southern Region
In Recovery, a mother and new baby often had to share a bed alongside another mother and baby, in a hospital with 250 beds but often in excess of 400 patients!
The Rotary Club of Prahran worked with the team at DIK to source, pack and ship a container load of hospital beds and medical equipment to Lucena City, Quezon, Philippines.
Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Lucena Central received the shipment, arranged delivery and handled the unpacking and assembly. This joint effort has significantly improved maternal health and patient care
The donated goods aided in the refurbishment of the Rotary Hall, Quezon Memorial Centre and the Progressive medical mission operated by the Rotarians of Lucena Central.
Computer Training Centre in Timor Leste
The Gateway Rotaract Club equipped a Computer Training Centre for the people of Balibar, Timor Leste
Donations in Kind, were able to supply the educational equipment that Teachers and Students need.
Improving Education in Morobe Province
Rotary Donations In Kind is a major recycler of Medical Equipment and Educational Supplies
- We live in a rich country were we can afford to upgrade equipment before it is worn out. This material is used to improve patient care and education worldwide
- Improving education is one of the most effective ways to provide young people in developing countries with a better chance in life.
- We gather the usable material that schools no longer require and equip schools in developing countries
- Could your school help?

Saving Mothers and Children
7 million children under the age of five die each year due to malnutrition, poor health care, and inadequate sanitation. To help reduce this rate, we improve access to essential medical services, and support trained health care providers for mothers and their children.
More than 100 million people are pushed into poverty each year because of medical costs. We aim to improve and expand access to low-cost and free health care in underdeveloped areas. We educate and mobilize communities to help prevent the spread of major diseases.
Sixty-seven million children worldwide have no access to education and more than 775 million people over the age of 15 are illiterate. Our goal is to strengthen the capacity of communities to support basic education and literacy, reduce gender disparity in education, and increase adult literacy.
