Liberty Rotary Establihses Disaster Preparedness & Relief Fund (DP&R Fund)

Disaster Relief has been a staple of the Liberty NY Rotary Club for a number of years.  With the support of many local Rotary Clubs and Rotarians, community organizations, businesses and individuals, the Club has administered disaster relief campaigns in New York, Texas, North Carolina, Puerto Rico, and most recently in Belize and Haiti.  An extensive network has been established in all of these locations through Rotary along with the partnership of Operation Endeavor and the PC-12 Tango Whiskey Squadron.  

In an effort to be prepared for the next disaster, the Liberty NY Rotary Club has established a Disaster Preparedness & Relief Fund (DP&R Fund) as part of the Liberty NY Rotary Foundation Fund at CFOS.  The Club’s goal is to have funds available from the DP&RF at CFOS so that a response can be made in real time to help the victims of future disasters both domestic and international.

Liberty Rotary Seeking Help For Earthquake Victims In Haiti

At 8:30am (GMT-4) on August 14th, a strong, shallow earthquake rocked southwestern Haiti.  The 7.2 magnitude quake, which was 10km deep, toppled buildings and homes and damaged infrastructure and roads, cutting off access to some roads in the southwest such as National Road 7 (RN#7) connecting Les Cayes and Jeremie, and forcing many to flee their homes in fear that they may collapse.  There have been many casualties and deaths reported in the areas in the southwest parts of Haiti.  

We have been in contact with many of our friends in Haiti who are providing intel and information about the immediate needs.  District 7020 Past District Governor Robert Leger and member of the Rotary Club des Cayes will be helping us coordinate our relief efforts.  Gustav Clivens, who lives in Ile A Vache, an island 6.5 miles south of Les Cayes that our mission teams have visited, is currently in Les Cayes and providing intel and information for us to assess.  In addition, we have contacted Gift of Water as well as our friends in the Rotary Club des Cap Haitien to assist us in our relief efforts.   In the next few days we will be gathering information and assessing what we can do to help provide relief through our Rotary contacts in both Les Cayes and Cap Haitien.    

On behalf of our fellow Rotarians and friends in Haiti, our Liberty NY Rotary Club Disaster Relief Committee is requesting donations to support our relief efforts there.  No donation is too small or too large.   Our goal is to raise at least $10,000. Receiving the donations now will help us to be able to help our friends in Haiti in real time.

All proceeds raised will go to the Liberty NY Rotary Club Disaster Relief Fund and will be used to provide relief as determined by our assessments of the situation on the ground in Haiti.

Liberty Rotary Seeking Help For Hurricane Eta & Iota Victims

There is an immediate need for supplies to get to families affected by Hurricanes Eta and Iota in Belize, Guatemala and Honduras. Representatives from the Liberty NY Rotary Club, Operation Endeavor, the Belize Sunrise Rotary Club and The Belize Rotary Club met on zoom recently as a result of being contacted by the Executive Director of the Belize Emergency Response Team requesting disaster relief assistance. We have been able to identify needs as described by those with boots on the ground in Belize. Those needs include DONATIONS to purchase food, hygiene and domestic supplies for hurricane-stricken families as wells as to provide disaster preparedness and basic first aid training necessary to educate stakeholders and build resilience for future disasters.

Puerto Rico (PR) Disaster Relief

 

On January 7 there was an earthquake, magnitude 6.4 followed by another 6.0 tremor, which impacted the southwest coast of Puerto Rico. As a result, a number of houses collapsed and buildings and other structures have been structurally compromised. Currently there are 30-40 seismic activities every day in the southwest coast of the island. ranging from 2.4 – 5.4 in intensity.  Many people are living in fear as the ground shakes daily.  Some are afraid to sleep in their homes fearing that the next earthquake could be catastrophic. The situation is causing economic, social and emotional issues for a number of the people in those communities.

After Hurricane Maria, the Liberty, NY Rotary Club developed a network of Rotarians from Puerto Rico, Massachusetts and New York to provide assistance to the Moca, Puerto Rico, area which was devastated by the hurricane, and together we are working with the leadership Puerto Rico’s District 7000 to respond to this latest crisis.

Through the Liberty NY Rotary Club Foundation Fund at CFOS, donations are being  securely collected and distributed directly to assist the people of Puerto Rico during this frightening time. Please consider donating to our fellow citizens, brothers and sisters – no donation is too large or too small – through one of the options below.
