    Fighting disease is one of Rotary’s main causes, in addition to the above members are at supporting efforts to promote proper handwashing techniques, teach people other ways to stay healthy, and supply training and vital medical equipment to health care providers. Now they’re helping health authorities communicate lifesaving information about COVID-19 and donate protective gear and other supplies to clinics and hospitals that are under strain because of the pandemic. Although Rotary Clubs are canceling or postponing their in-person meetings and events, are still finding ways to keep up their fellowship, reimagine their service efforts and respond to the Pandemic.
