Welcome to the Rotary Club of Wanchai
Welcome to Rotary Club of Wanchai’s website. We hope you enjoy your visit.
Our Club is a member of District 3450, Hong Kong, Macau, Mongolia and The Peoples’ Republic of China Guangdong Province. Our meetings are held weekly, every Monday at 12:45p.m. at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Wanchai. Our official language is English. Rotarians of other clubs and guests are always welcome to join us. Should you be interested in visiting us, please go to the page "Contact Us" or simply email firstname.lastname@example.org
By joining us at our weekly luncheon, you will have the opportunity to meet our members who come from a number of different countries around the world. This is just one of the many attractions for visitors to our Club. Some of our members have been in Hong Kong since the Club was founded 25 years ago; some are expatriates who joined more recently, whilst others are local leaders within the Hong Kong community. All are passionate about their involvement as Rotarians. As such, this diversity makes us a unique club and is most certainly the main reason why so many visiting Rotarians from all over the world like to join our luncheons when visiting Hong Kong.
We invite you to look at the projects we proudly support, whether they benefit the local community or affect the region. Our rule is to be certain that any funds donated will be used directly for those in need. Before we support a new charity/community project, our members may visit the institution to clarify exactly what we are and will be supporting. Often that charity/community project will also make a presentation to us and submit a proposal. Either way, we are confident in the projects we support. Apart from the global Rotary International projects amongst which “Eradicate Polio from Earth” is one of the most important ones, we mainly support projects in association with education, medical advances/benefits, and core values preservation projects (i.e. historical, ethical etc.). We have contributed amongst other things to building hospitals, houses for those in need, and participated in rescue programmes after major disasters such as earthquakes or tsunamis.
