Anne Matthews from District 9560 had this to say in the recent Rotary Downunder magazine: 
"The Rotary Foundation (TRF)is a  not for profit charity pivotal to the work of Rotary in advancing  world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of of education, and alleviation of poverty. TRF is supported soley by donations from members and friends- half is directed to District, and half goes to the World Fund. Both help to support and enable Rotary projects to become a reality through global and district grants. For example the Polio- Plus program introduced in 1985 has seen the immunization of nearly 3 billion children- thus, Polio has almost been erradicated world- wide. Hundreds of thousands of people now enjoy access to clean water, health care, and education, thanks to Foundation's humanitarian projects."  A  good number of Preston Rotarians  generously contribute to this excellent charity, and Club Foundation Director, Max Walsh recently presented Foundation's possibilities at our club meeting.
