Rotary Club of Crystal Palace & Norwood
The Rotary Club of Crystal Palace & Norwood is part of a worldwide organisation of more than 1.2 million business, professional and community leaders who provide humanitarian service and help build goodwill and peace in the world. Their partnership with RWEYOWA began in June 2011 and has been invaluable ever since. Online donations made via the My Charity Page website are paid through the Rotary Club before being transferred to RWEYOWA. In doing so, the Rotary Club generously pays the transfer costs, allowing 100% of the donations to be spent on RWEYOWA's projects. We are also hopeful that the HMRC will accept the Rotary Club's application for charitable tax status enabling RWEYOWA to claim an extra 25% on gift aidable donations.
RWEYOWA receives material and technical support from Mildmay Uganda for efficient and effective implementation of the organization's activities.
