Rotary Disaster Relief Team of District 9685 was established in 2023.
After the catastrophic fires and floods in Australia in recent years, during the debilitating and ongoing effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic, Rotarians realised we could work more effectively during and after disasters.
Our Mission is to respond to those affected by a disaster and asking them “what do you need”?
With more than 1.4 million members worldwide, Rotary members are on the ground and ready to take action to help communities recover when disasters strike.
Rotary members and The Rotary Foundation play a unique role in disaster recovery and rebuilding efforts. Working closely with our partner ShelterBox and other organizations that specialize in disaster relief, Rotary members lead projects to support every phase of a community's recovery.
Rotary supports three phases of relief:
1. Immediate response: Our local clubs and partners immediately offer helping hands and supplies.
2. Short-term assistance: Our clubs and districts help affected communities wherever we can through funds and materials to re-establish day-to-day operations.
3. Long-term rebuilding: Our clubs plan and implement projects that rebuild affected communities.
