As the 2019-20 Rotary year was coming to an end, the District Rotary Foundation Committee had never been busier!  With a global pandemic underway, Rotarians globally swung into action, initiating projects to support their local and global communities. 
Our District received a number of requests to contribute to or partner in COVID19-related projects.  One of these was a request for D9810 to act as the international partner for a global grant in North Texas, providing critical equipment to frontline caregivers and to stock food banks in affected communities.
Our District also supported COVID19 related projects in Brazil and Sri Lanka.  Our global Rotary friends pass on their thanks to our District’s members during this difficult time.
