Ethiopia 2015 - Be a gift to the world
Rotary needs funds to deliver medical equip, clothing, balls & Educational supplies to orphanages & communities in need during our visit.
Hutt City Rotary will conduct a feasibility study on the validity & impact of creating a successful global project which will benefit a whole village. We will identify & define the critical areas of need. Rotarians will visit for 3wks and interact with communities exploring the ways in which to alleviate suffering and prevent loss of life. We need to raise funds to pay for the cost of air or freight to supply gifted supplies.
Rotary Club of Hutt City Incorporated Charitable Trust's involvement (page creator)
Our role is to conduct a feasibility study to identify and define the needs to alleviate suffering and loss of life. Once we have the data and results from our study, we hope to gain funding to organise an international project between NZ, the local community and RC Finot in Addis Ababa.
The Rotary Club of Hutt City. Dedicated people, united and working together, can change the world.

It's nearly time to fly out to Ethiopia. Last minute packing of freight and suitcases before the Rotary Aid Adventure starts..... Thanks to all of those that came out and supported our fundraiser cocktail party in Lower Hutt.
The Rotary Club of Hutt City and Rotary District 9940 are sponsoring a trip by Deb Mair and Wellington Phoenix Youth player Nati Hailemariam to Ethiopia. They leave on August 23 and will spend six weeks liaising with representatives from Save the Children, World Vision, Unicef, the United Nations Development Programme and a Rotary club in Addis Ababa as they research what would be the best form for a New Zealand-led aid project there.
Last week's cocktail party at the Lower Hutt art museum raised about $4000 in cash, with a further $1500 in barter card dollars pledged from local business owners, Mair said.
After singing and strumming on guitar a version of Last Train, Rotary Club of Hutt City president Cherian submitted to the scissors as attendees put in bids for the right to snip at his dreadlocks. Then a shearing blade weilded by Brian Ross was fired up after a $200 pledge was offered if Cherian lost the lot.
