Our Rotary Club is quite unique in its creation, in that few if any of our members, both Thai and foreigners, are from the islands that our club represents. Most of us here have joined our club motivated by a feeling of being privileged to call these islands our adopted homes and privileged with the opportunities that we have had in life. We want to give back to the community that has welcomed us all here.

To improve the living conditions, infrastructure and quality of life for all people living on these islands including essential food supplies for families struggling to survive since the economic collapse caused by the covid pandemic.
FOOD 4 LIFE
To provide and distribute essential supplies to local people due to the impact of Covid and the collapse of international tourism.
