Henley Rotarians Raise £1,160 for Ukrainians Displaced and Wounded

Members of the Rotary Club of Henley-on-Thames would like to thank generous member of the public who contributed £1,160 during the club’s Town Square collection last Saturday (2 April). It is money that will go directly to help embattled war victims in Ukraine and in refugee centres outside the country.

The funds will go to International Rotary’s Fellowship of Healthcare Professionals, a body of Rotarians working on the crisis in the region. Along with other money from Rotary Clubs across the world, it will be used to buy everything from tourniquets to essential medicines and mobile X-ray machines.

No expenses will be taken out of the contributions, and the money will be directed as needed by those on the ground, including Ukrainian Rotarians.  The healthcare fellowship only responds to frontline medics and works through Rotarians to ensure the money goes directly for what’s needed.
