Our Projects

Rotary, to borrow from the pages of Rotary International, is a global network of 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who come together to make positive, lasting change in communities at home and abroad. We, as a very small wheel in this network, do our best to do our share to affect positive and lasting change locally and globally.

On the pages in this section you will find information on current and past projects that we have been involved in as a club.

Of course one major requirement to run successful projects is fund-raising. To do so – and to help you to help us do so – we have founded a charitable foundation:

Stichting Community Service Rotary Club Utrecht International
IBAN: NL51 ABNA 0423 5991 27

The Stichting is registered in the Netherlands as an Algemeen Nut Beogende Instelling (ANBI)
RSIN/fiscaal nummer: 8157 93 170.
KVK number: 30212183
Contact address: A. G. Hearn, Huib van der Vechtlaan 5, 3981 WB Bunnik

Recent Project News:

As the COVID-19 pandemic spreads throughout the world, the healthcare systems have proven to be crucial, as well as one of the weakest links in efforts to save lives. This is even more extreme in developing countries, such as Mexico.
In Mexico, the public healthcare system cannot supply personal protective equipment (PPE) to all its healthcare workers, making them vulnerable to COVID-19. By April 13, over 500 healthcare workers were infected, and at least 9 died due to COVID-19*
Rotary Club Utrecht International recently supported health care personnel in The Netherlands. Now we are helping healthcare personnel’s abroad. For this project, we are partnering with the Mexican Rotary Club Plaza de la República, to provide PPE for health care professionals in 3 public health system hospitals in Mexico City.
We aim to raise € 3,000, i.e. the cost of the PPE to keep 10 doctors SAFE in Mexico for 3 weeks, enough to support hundreds of COVID-19 patients.

Rotary Club Utrecht International is proud to have raised and donated €1200 euros to the project “Meals for Healthcare Workers”. We would like to thank everyone for their kind donations. We partnered with the “Hart voor de zorg” initiative of Smulderskookt. 100 meals were delivered to the ICU staff at Diakonessenziekenhuis in Utrecht on 2nd April and a further 120 meals to the Sint Antonius Ziekenhuis in Nieuwegein on 4th April.

The meals were shared by doctors, nurses and support staff, who ‘were very surprised to receive our generous gift’. We, like all other members of the public are grateful to all Health Care Workers in the country. Colleagues from the ICU at Sint Antonius said that they ‘love what they do for a living, even during this busy and hectic period’. We think they are going above and beyond the call of duty on the nation’s behalf, which is why we wanted to donate something nice. The same staff also told us ‘gifts like these give us a sense of appreciation’, so from the health care workers, and the RCUI, thank you again for your contribution to this wonderful cause.

Rotary Club Utrecht International is partnering with the “Hart voor de zorg” initiative of Smulderskookt. We are raising funds for meals for health care workers who are working very hard to ensure our well being. Our club will double the amount of your donation from our foundation account, up to a maximum of € 600.

We aim to have a special day with 40 – 100 meals (6 euro per meal) sponsored. If we receive more donations, we can cover more hospitals and more days of food.
