24th October is World Polio Day. Rotary Club of Kuching Central has participated in District 3310's Step Up to End Polio campaign to raise funds and awareness of Polio for the past 8 weeks. Many of the club members have taken up the challenge of achieving step or weight loss targets during this period, with several of them achieving incredible numbers all in the name of End Polio through their love of Rotary.

The Rotary Club of Kuching Central held their first physical weekly meeting for the Rotary year 2020-21 which saw a great turn out of members and spouses. It was a new experience for everyone with the special arrangements in place to follow social distancing measures in this new norm. Nevertheless, RCKC's fellowship remained in high spirits and a rousing meeting took place with lots of laughs. The meeting was also broadcast on Zoom for those unable to join in physically. ...

The training was conducted by District Interact Chair Rtn James Lee of RC Singapore, with guest speakers PDG Fong Hoe Beng and Rtn Anil Changaroth. Most of the sessions involved the active participation from the Interactors.

This video by Vocational Chair Rtn Roland Phang summarises RCKC's simple handover of 1400 assorted clothing items and 500 pieces of face masks to the residents of Rumah Panjang Chat Bilau at Julau, approximately 385km away from Kuching. The clothing items were contributed by Uniqlo Malaysia, through their Uniqlo Recycle campaign, as well as Kuching Marathon, with both having worked with the club on previous occasions. The handover trip was led by President Wong Chen Yi and Service Project Chair Rtn Calvin Chong, with 4 other Rotarians on hand to help transport the items.
We hope our small contribution has brought some positivity to them and we are happy to hear that efforts are now underway to help them rebuild their home. ... See MoreSee Less
An expedition of 6 RCKC members, led by President Wong Chen Yi and Service Project Chair Rtn. Calvin Chong handed over 1400 assorted clothing items and 500 pieces of face mask to the residents of Rumah Panjang Chat Bilat at Julau. These clothing items were contributed by Uniqlo Malaysia as part of Uniqlo Recycle, their regular clothing donation drive program, while Kuching Marathon also donated shirts. This is the 3rd time RCKC has worked with Uniqlo.
Almost the entire 20-door longhouse was razed in an afternoon fire last week and since then, the 142 residents have been staying at a chapel near the longhouse. The longhouse is located approximately 385km away from Kuching, making it a 5.5 hour drive one-way. Although it might be a tiring drive to and fro, the RCKC members were highly motivated to be able to provide some assistance to the residents for their first service project of the year. It is hoped that through this small effort, some positivity was shared with them and that they will receive more assistance to rebuild their home and lives.
RCKC will continue in its efforts to do good in our community. ... See MoreSee Less
