By PDG Belinda Yeung, JP, Rotary Club of Hong Kong Harbour
Welcome to the new Rotary year and it’s my honor to be The District Rotary Foundation Committee Chair for the next three Rotary years (2021 – 2024). Our aim is to educate, motivate and train Rotarians and Rotaractors about The Rotary Foundation grant program, recognize all supportive donors, and introduce various channels for giving opportunities.
A new year offers us fresh opportunities to imagine new possibilities and harness unfulfilled potential. By supporting the Rotary Foundation, you will experience many opportunities to do good in the world. We Have The Power And Magic – To Serve to Change Lives globally!
I’m also exciting to share with you that The Rotary Foundation Trustees and Rotary International Board of Directors have both unanimously approved adding a new area of focus: Supporting the Environment.
Covid-19 might have affected us physically interacting with international rotary partners, but this has not deterred our determination in transforming Rotarians’ gifts into service projects which save lives both locally and globally. We continue to respond to different communities given their unique needs and concerns through the Rotary Foundation. We will further diversify our efforts to address some critical and widespread humanitarian needs globally to maximize the impact. To achieve this, we need Rotarians’ continued support and donate to the Rotary
