Rotary helps disaster victims

The Rotary Foundation and Rotary clubs are helping bring emergency aid to communities battered by severe weather and earthquakes.

“The power of Rotary is in the Foundation's ability to pull help from around the world while local clubs provide immediate relief in their own communities,” says Don Mebus of the Rotary Club of Arlington, Texas.

An estimated 40 million people across Bangladesh, India, and Nepal have been affected after massive floods hit the area last month. UNICEF estimates 31 million people in India have lost their homes, and 8 million people in Bangladesh and 1.7 million in Nepal have been affected.

For the second time in two weeks, a powerful earthquake has hit Mexico, destroying buildings and highways, and killing hundreds of people.
