Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves.

Rotary Club of Seaford

  • Shelterbag Initiative

    What are Shelterbags?

    A Shelterbag is a lightweight, waterproof, vented swag which includes a mattress and padded hood. They roll up into a 2kg backpack. The Rotary Club of Seaford has purchased 10 Shelterbags at a cost of $93.00 each for distribution by the Southern Adelaide Family Enrichment (SAFE) Centre at Christies Beach to local people dealing with homelessness. The bedding keeps dry and provides warmth and dignity. Each bag has been labelled and numbered, and the team at SAFE will assess each individual’s needs and then monitor and control distribution.

  • Bali Water Tank Site Visit

    Our Rotarian Mark Huddleston visited the remote village in Indonesia where our club has partnered with the Rotary Club of Ubud Sunset to provide 100 water tanks to local families. Mark and his family joined local Rotarians Kartika and Laura plus three Rotaractors to inspect the tanks which had recently been installed, and applied stickers to the tanks denoting the supporting club. The stickers only get applied once the local Rotarians have certified that the tanks have been installed and are being used correctly by the families. Mark recorded this video:

    Mark was visiting Bali with his family for a holiday, and was keen to visit the site in the Seraya region, on the eastern most point of Bali. Prior to the provision of these 1,200L tanks, local families had to rely on a monthly water truck delivery, where each family could only collect water once a month and lug it over rough and steep terrain. There is considerable annual rainfall, but no formal water collection and distribution infrastructure. This reliable water supply is life changing for these families, and they are extremely appreciative of Rotary’s efforts
