The International Committee
Every year the Rotary Club of Wolverhampton allocates a proportion of the money it raises to this Committee. These funds are used on overseas projects in the poorer parts of the world. The aims of these projects are as follows:
- Fighting disease.
- Providing clean water, sanitation and hygiene.
- Saving mothers and children.
- Supporting education.
- Growing local economies.
- Promoting peace.
In the last year to meet these aims we have supported the following:
