The Project Committee is currently reviewing local charities that we can support. 

RCY endorsed a grant application to Medical Action Myanmar to support their clinic in Hlaing Thayar which had 115,000 outpatients in 2013. The clinic offers General Counselling, STD, HIV & TB treatment, Family planning services, Neo natel and paediatric medical services, Malnutrition treatment, vaccination, food supplement programs and Health Awareness.

Supporting local Charities – the early years 

From 1929 to 1974, Rotary Club of Rangoon ran an impressive number of charitable projects, per the recollection of BilalRaschid and his wife Tin Tin Nu Raschid as follows:

The is RCY’s first Global Grant Application which is currently being reviewed by the Rotary Foundation.  A team of surgeons, from the International Surgical Missions Support, will come to Mandalay Hospital in February 2015 and perform over 200 surgical procedures. The Global Grant which is being applied for is to purchase much needed surgical equipment for the hospital. 


For these projects, the RCY is providing advice and logistic support.

A number of international Rotary Clubs have a long history of supporting Myanmar.  Here are a few that we are aware of so far.
