Each country partner of Disaster Aid International is sponsored by a specific Rotary club. In the case of Disaster Aid UK & Ireland, that club is the Rotary Club of Denton and Audenshaw. Working together within an international context, Disaster Aid International is accordingly recognised by Rotary International.
Rotary International is the world’s first service club organisation. With origins going back to 1905 it has grown to enjoy global cover.
It currently has 1.2 million members in 34,000 clubs across more than 200 countries and geographic areas across the world.
Rotary club members form a global network of men and women from all walks of life who volunteer their time and talents to serve their local communities and to help those less fortunate around the world. Their ethos is exemplified by Rotary’s motto “Service Above Self”.
Their activities are governed by the “Four –Way Test”:
- Is it the TRUTH?
- Is it FAIR to all concerned?
- Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
- Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
