During 2013, Disaster Aid Australia was delighted to welcome Mercedes-Benz Australia (through its trucks, buses and vans division) as a major sponsor. And to mark that sponsorship, a raffle to win a new Mercedes-Benz Vito Van, generously donated by Mercedes-Benz Australia was launched Australia-wide.
Disaster Aid Australia 2010 Annual Report.
Disaster Aid Australia 2011 Annual Report.
As you may be aware, I have for many years been involved in just a few of the amazing projects Rotarians in Australia energise - assisting those in need in different ways – in our country and beyond. For instance I have been the National Patron of ROMAC for 20 plus years. The miracles they manifest whilst changing lives of youngsters is beyond belief.
I am also the proud Patron of Disaster Aid Australia – a project of the Rotary Club of Endeavour Hills – and again I am happy to assist, where and how best I can, to ensure they continue to help those who need compassionate assistance in the form of shelter, water and light … Wonderful.
Since Disaster Aid Australia began in 2010 they have, with your support, assisted people who have lost everything in Pakistan, the Sudan, Haiti and now in the Horn of Africa.
This current disaster is of huge, almost unimaginable dimensions. My Rotarian friends at Disaster Aid Australia – volunteers – are on the ground, committed to doing what they can to make a difference on behalf of all Australian Rotarians. They do us proud.
And now, they really do need your immediate help.
I urge you to assist them to replenish their stock of life-saving Family Survival boxes so they can continue to make a difference to the lives of so many people in the world who are marginalised because of disaster.
A donation of just $800 can save the life of a family and give them some hope for a future.
If you are able to continue your support of this remarkable Australian Rotary Club humanitarian project, they will continue to deliver the aid on your behalf.
My heartfelt thanks for your support to date. I know firsthand the difference Disaster Aid Australia and Rotarians are making, and I encourage you to join with me and continue to make a difference … together we can, hand on heart!
