Traditionally,  RAWCS has been the Australian arm of Rotary International that assists Rotary Clubs with the development and management of International projects. As a result of its recent re-organisation into a National Rotary body, RAWCS now offers more diverse opportunities for service projects here in Australia and overseas
RAWCS is the largest and fastest growing arm of Rotary in Australia.

 
 
The devastation caused by the Scotsburn fires  on December 15,   saw the people of Ballarat and district rallying to help those who had been affected by the disaster .
Through the coordination efforts of the Buninyong Lion’s Club the Rotary Clubs of the Ballarat region, we were able to provide support to the volunteer workers by preparing and serving meals .The Rotary Clubs involved worked on a roster system with other organisations such as CFA, CWA and Lion’s.
 
A wonderful effort by all, demonstrating that when disasters happen, volunteer organisations like Rotary are always ready to answer the call for help.  (picture shows volunteers with a number of fridges ready to be used to assist in the task of supporting those who had lost their homes)  You will find detailed reports on the left hand side of this page under Scotsburn Fires 2016.
