Welcome to Meeting No. 185 of the Rotary eClub of Latitude 38 

This week's meeting material

Donations In Kind

Just looking back at a post made by David R in March about the DIK warehouse in Footscray.  Very good video which explains how DIK works, what type of items are received and from where they come from. At the time it was suggested that this also go up on our public page but in checking I can see that we missed that one so I have shared it now. Check the video out and comment.

DIK’s roots go back 50 years, when Australian Rotarians began hands-on projects overseas and it became obvious that surplus material in Australia would be very valuable. It is part of Rotary Australia World Community Service (RAWCS) a group that assists with practical projects in developing countries. A Donations In Kind (DIK) project is often the most practical and cost effective way to help people in developing countries and it also provides excellent opportunities to help local communities.It provides Rotarians, the Public and Corporate Sector with the chance to make a meaningful difference in the lives of people who need our help.
