Our club Rotaract Scheveningen is collecting funds for the Rotary Honduras Hurricane Relief!

Why should I care?

Major portions of mainland Honduras have been devastated by Hurricanes Eta and Iota.

The local Rotary club of Roatan (A Honduran island) is collecting food bags for people affected from the hurricanes in Honduras. Each food bag costs 15$ and one bag is enough to provide food for one family for an entire week! The goal of our club is to collect enough funds to provide at least 25 food bags. This way, we will be able to provide support for affected families in these extra challenging times for Honduras!  

How can I help?

When?

Sunday, 13th of December! We will be delivering breakfasts in the Hague from 8.00 am until 11.30 am. Straight to your doorstep with keeping the required distance, of course!
