Rotary Bushfire Appeal
You can support those affected by the bushfires by making a (tax deductible) donation to the "Rotary National Bushfires Appeal" at:
All Australians can donate to support the victims of the devastating bushfires through the newly established Rotary Australia World Community Service (RAWCS) "Rotary National Bushfire Appeal". Funds from this account will go directly to the Districts affected by the bushfires. Any efforts from Rotary will be once the first responders have completed their good work, and Rotary can start to help residents and communities to rebuild themselves and their communities.
International donors can donate by bank transfer to the Rotary Australia Relief Fund, details below:
• SWIFT Code CTBAAU2S [case sensitive - 2nd last digit is two]
• Commonwealth Bank
• Rotary Australia Relief Fund
• BSB 067 105 | Account 10519888
• Reference 68/2019-20
With over 1,100 Rotary clubs and 30,000 members across Australia, Rotary is well placed to support immediate bushfire relief and longer-term re-building and recovery.
Local Rotary clubs are able to immediately offer assistance and supplies.  Our clubs and districts then help affected communities wherever possible through funds and materials to re-establish day-to-day operations.  Longer term re-building is supported by Rotary clubs planning and implementing projects that re-build affected communities.
Rotary International may also provide disaster response grants for Rotary Districts affected by natural disasters to launch their own projects or work with established relief organisations to help their communities recover.
A link to the fund can be found on the main page of the RAWCS website:

January is Vocational Service month
The latest news from Australian Rotary Health
RI President's January message
Rotary's commitment to vocational service is built on the highest ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful work, and the dignifying of each Rotarian's occupation as an opportunity to serve society. That last point is so important. No matter our profession, we all contribute mightily to the world when we conduct our work with integrity and always adhere to The Four-Way Test.

Foundation Trustee Chair's January message
The World Health Organization has certified type 3 of the wild poliovirus as eradicated. This is big news! We have also gone three years without any wild poliovirus on the continent of Africa. It may soon be certified polio-free.
The final mile of our journey is a difficult one. Pakistan and Afghanistan are great challenges for us — but we have met so many great challenges before. Every time a goal has seemed out of reach, Rotarians have stood together and answered the call.
