Rotary Australia World Community Service Ltd. (RAWCS) was formed to enable Australian Rotarians, Rotary Districts and Rotary Clubs to assist communities and individuals through humanitarian aid projects.
In District 9685 we have approximately 70 projects. These are humanitarian projects overseas in developing countries and compassionate projects here in Australia.
We are working in about 30 countries.
