Rotary District 9700/9710 Drought Relief Appeal

This is the web page of Districts 9700 & 9710  Drought Relief Program.  A joint committee made up of members of both districts has been meeting weekly to create a program to distribute the donations received from the combined RAWCS, NFF and Channel 9 Today Drought Relief Appeal.
