Fund Raising Dinner For The Victims And Families Affected By Covid – 19 In India

The Rotary Club of Campbelltown held a Fund Raising Dinner for the victims and families affected by Covid- 19 in India on Saturday 19th June 2021 at the San Giorgio Club. It was very well attended with approximately 280 guests, entertained to a classical sitar recital followed by a classical Indian dance performance and to an Indian buffet dinner. Hon. James Stevens MP was among the guests. The Rotary Club of Campbelltown is working with the Rotary Club of  Madras South to see the project through. Both Clubs are working together to apply for a global grant on this project. Through Donations in Kind , the Club has also secured 60 beds to go to Rotary Club of Madras for distribution. This action by the Rotary Club of Campbelltown would most certainly make a difference to the lives of the victims and the families affected by Covid in India.

PP Jim Silvestri the Fund Raising Director and PP Babu Kanagasabai Coordinated the event.

The Covid – 19 Pandemic has no discrimination of race ,creed or religion and does not spare where you are and where you come from. Even the young are vulnerable. Today the epi-centre is India.

The media described it as a Tsunami. 400,000 daily cases and a daily death rate of 4000. This I understand is under recorded. Hospitals are running out of medical supplies, beds, oxygen and medical staff and volunteers are stretched to their limits working 24 / 7. Crematoriums are also stretched beyond words. Furnaces melting, bodies are lined up for a basic performance of last rites and they are running out of firewood.

The Rotary Club of Campbelltown is currently working with the Rotary Club of Madras South to provide assistance to the victims and their families.

A fund raising dinner will be held on Saturday 19th June 2021 at the San Giorgio Club for the purpose.
