Rotarian Response to Ukraine

Rotarians Respond to Ukrainian Crisis

More than half of the 2.5 million refugees fleeing Ukraine have arrived in Poland where Rotary members are organizing shelter, transportation, and basic necessities for the incoming refugees.

Rotary Club of Olsztyn is collecting and managing donations for refugees, primarily unaccompanied children, staying at Ostróda Camp. Within a few hours, four cars full of donated items were collected— including food, clothes, bedding, personal hygiene products, as well as some toys.

The Rotary Foundation has received thousands of donations, totaling over $1.1 million. These donations support efforts like that of the Rotary Club of Olsztyn as well as provide medical supplies in Ukraine and support refugees who have fled to neighboring countries. #RotaryResponds

We will be hearing about the Rotary HANWASH ( project from Dr. Omar Keith Helferich & John Gronberg.
HANWASH (Haiti National Clean Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Strategy) is a collaborative national initiative to provide thoughtfully managed and sustainable clean water and sanitation to all citizens of Haiti, along with the associated health, community and economic benefits. The initiative is led by Rotary District 7020 and DINEPA (The Haitian Government’s National Water and Sanitation Agency), along with other non-governmental organization (NGO) partners, such as Haiti Outreach and Pure Water for the World.

Club Updates

Unfortunately, our planned speaker was ill and unable to come. So, we heard updates on what is going on with club projects.

Ken Austin reported he represented Rotary at the 102nd year anniversary celebration of the American Legion Band. The band has many special activities scheduled this year and we are welcome to attend all of them.


Russ Miller reminded us of the Jump for Polio coming up on June 25th at the Grand Haven airport. This is both a fundraiser for the Polio Plus program and an attempt to break the Guiness record for the most people skydiving out of a single plane. Rebecca Lamper and Ken Vos are jumping for our club. The District Governor is hoping to have 100 jumpers and has about 50 currently. Rebecca reminded us that she and Ken are soliciting donations for the event.


Carol Swart reported that the move of our refugee family into permanent housing went well. The dwelling is fully furnished. The only request is for 2 twin bed size comforters either new or in good condition.


We are anticipating the arrival of our inbound exchange students at the end of summer. We only have housing for one of the students. If we cannot find housing, we will have to send a student to another club and pay for their expenses. Please ask around if any of your contacts know of a family who could host a student.


Our luncheon at West Ottawa with the challenged student is set for April 28th. West Ottawa goes to great lengths to set up this annual event and Robert Ortman asked if we could all make sure to attend.
