Hope For Venezuelan Refugees Phase 3
Thank you e-Club Rotarian, Cristal Montañez, for your ongoing support to the refugee project! These refugees are returning to Venezuela from Colombia despite the quarantine imposed by COVID-19. One of the men rides a bike carrying his baby boy in a basket attached to the steering wheel while hauling all their belonging in a tow-car hooked to the back of the bike. Other family members walk behind him, pushing a stroller. 
Their destination is the border city of Cúcuta, where they will join hundreds of Venezuelans in an overcrowded uncovered area with no food or water. People wait for days in these unsafe conditions since, according to Colombia's migration agency Venezuela limits entrances to 300 people per day. No social distance and protocols to prevent the propagation of coronavirus are followed at the migration retention area.
The Hope For Venezuelan Refugees team continues supporting our partners and volunteers on their effort to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing refugee crisis. Reina Carmona cooks a meal over an open-fire at the Punto de Hidratación Hermanos Caminantes Venezolanos y Colombianos for Venezuelan refugee families returning to Venezuela. Together, we are helping to alleviate hunger and build peace.

Rotary Clubs Help Fight the COVID-19 Pandemic

Members use ingenuity, flexibility to help people affected by coronavirus and to stay connected. 

As the COVID-19 pandemic spreads uncertainty and hardship around the world, Rotary members and participants are innovating, caring for those affected, and showing that even at a distance, there are ways to help.

As people of action, Rotary members are engaged in their communities — gathering for projects and offering help to those in need. But in many areas, life is changing drastically. Health experts are urging people to maintain distance from others or even isolate themselves in order to slow the spread of the highly contagious virus. 

Fighting disease is one of Rotary’s main causes, so members already support efforts to promote proper hand washing techniques, teach people other ways to stay healthy, and supply training and vital medical equipment to health care providers. Now they’re helping health authorities communicate lifesaving information about COVID-19 and donating protective gear and other supplies to clinics and hospitals that are under strain because of the pandemic. 

These are just some of the ways that members are supporting their communities right now:

  • In Italy, one of the countries that has been affected most, clubs in District 2080 are raising funds to purchase ventilators and protective gear for overstretched hospitals. And when the worst of the outbreak was raging in China, the district’s clubs raised more than $21,000 for protective masks to prevent spread of the disease there. 
  • Clubs in District 2041, also in Italy, raised funds online to buy protective gear for health workers who will care for COVID-19 patients at a 400-bed hospital being built at Milan’s fairgrounds. 
  • In Hong Kong, Rotary clubs have raised funds, packed medical supplies, and visited public housing to distribute masks and sanitizers. 
  • Rotary clubs in Sri Lanka installed thermometers in airport bathrooms and produced posters to raise awareness about the coronavirus for schools across the country. 
  • The Rotary Club of Karachi Darakhshan, Sind, Pakistan, distributed thousands of masks to people in Karachi. 
  • Clubs in District 3700 (Korea) have donated $155,000 to the Red Cross. 
  • Rotary clubs in Nigeria’s Akwa Ibom state conducted a campaign to raise awareness about the threat of the virus. Members shared information about the illness and how to keep safe at two schools and distributed materials about using good hygiene to stay healthy. 
  • The Rotary club of Metro Bethesda, Maryland, USA, is contacting neighbors who live alone and are quarantined. Volunteers are asked to contact at least five of those people each week to ask how they are and if they need anything. Members are also leaving flowers on their doorsteps. 
Rotary Peace Fellowships

Did you know that each year, Rotary awards up to 130 fully funded fellowships for dedicated leaders from around the world to study at one of our peace centers?

Through academic training, practice, and global networking opportunities, the Rotary Peace Centers program develops the capacity of peace and development professionals or practitioners to become experienced and effective catalysts for peace. The fellowships cover tuition and fees, room and board, round-trip transportation, and all internship and field-study expenses.

Since the program began in 2002, the Rotary Peace Centers have trained more than 1,300 fellows who now work in more than 115 countries. Many serve as leaders in governments, NGOs, the military, education, law enforcement, and international organizations like the United Nations and the World Bank.
