RAWCS Donations in Kind (DIK)

 

Donations in Kind (DIK) is a program supported by Rotary Clubs in Australia which grew out of the compassion and concern of returning overseas volunteers. This recycling and reuse program involves the collection, sorting, packing, dispatch and distribution of donated items to countries in need of these goods.

Blood Donations

Did you know that currently 1 in 3 Australians need blood, yet only 1 in 30 donates? Every week Australia needs over 27,000 blood donations. Sydney City Rotaract helps out the Australian Red Cross by organising quarterly blood donations followed by a social dinner. It's a great way to catch up with fellow Rotaractors while doing something good for the community.

Youth Homelessness

Imagine finding yourself homeless and then feeling as though you have no one to turn to.  Many young Australian’s find themselves in this exact situation with 46% of homeless Australian’s being under the age of 24 and 10% under the age of 12 years old.  In NSW alone there was over 13,000 homeless youths under the age of 24 in 2006.

Stepping Stone House

Stepping Stone House is a house for homeless teenagers who through no fault of their own find themselves unable to live at home. It is an accredited out-of-home-care residential service providing medium to long term accommodation.
