eClub supports AFAR region, Ethiopia

Rotary D9510online, eClub President PDG Eric C Russell MBE invites Clubs to partner with the recovery effort for the AFAR region in Ethiopia. One of our overseas members, Valerie Browning lives and works as a volunteer in the AFAR.

After many years of drought, flooding rains have recently hit the region. Abida and her daughter (see photo below) found themselves holding the children to stop them from drowning. They were rescued by a government helicopter and brought to Hummadoyta, another sub-district in their district of Afambo. As they were evacuated, they brought nothing with them but the clothes they were wearing. They had lost their stock, their cooking utensils, their bedding – all of their meagre possessions.

We all know that Rotarians and Clubs are generous donors, and that there are many worthycauses which appeal to us all.

The RotaryD9510online Club is holding an appeal to help these people. We have the utmost faith in Valerie to ensure that all donations will go immediately to the area of greatest need, so please make a donation today!
