Service defines Rotary’s character; whether local or international, it promotes Rotary’s appeal and visibility in the community, and is the reason Rotary continues to grow.
Community service responds to the needs of a local community. Rotary clubs determine top priorities for service projects by first learning about a community’s needs and assets and then developing a response that addresses them.
Some of the local community projects supported are:
Christian Action is a Hong Kong registered charitable organisation established in 1985 (Registration No. 161383). Their mission is to help the poor and disadvantaged in Hong Kong and Mainland China with particular emphasis upon displaced persons, irrespective of race, sex, religion or nationality.
