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.
