It is without a doubt that COVID-19 has significantly impacted the social and economic lives of many citizens and residents in Antigua and Barbuda. With this in mind, the Rotary Club of Antigua (RCOA) embarked on a Food Voucher Programme, geared towards bringing relief to approximately four hundred (400) individuals, whose income have been directly affected as a result of COVID-19. The programme was officially launched on May 14, 2020 and is expected to run for at least three (3) months in the first instance. It caters to single parents and families
with children where the income earners have suffered loss of income as a result of the termination of their employment.

More than 600 entries from 56 countries and geographical areas were received for the Rotarian's 2020 photo contest . These photographs cover the vast plains of Inner Mongolia to the man-made canyons of Hong Kong. They tell a story of Rotarians exploring the world with open eyes and hearts, making connections across cultures, and capturing beauty wherever they find it. Contest judge and professional photographer, Damon Winter's discerning eye and comments on the images submitted are like a master class in photography and it is no easy task to be one of the photos selected in this contest. In the June 2020 edition of the Rotarian magazine, with his photo submission worthy of honorable mention, Rotarian Philbert Williams, from the Rotary Club of Tobago in District 7030, finds himself among these chosen few and is now a notable member of this audacious and illustrious group making his club, his district and his fellow rotarians ever so proud of his accomplishment.
While Italy has been largely locked down to fight the coronavirus, members of the Rotary Club of Morimondo Abbazia have galvanized support — and a measure of hope — for people and businesses reeling from the effects of the pandemic. Their efforts are addressing both immediate and long-term needs: donating meals to health care workers, organizing a supply chain to get the ingredients for liquid sanitizer, and helping businesses that depend on in-person commerce move their operations online.
The 2019–20 RI Board of Directors met via video conference on 18 March and 21–24 April 2020. At these meetings, the Board reviewed 10 committee reports and recorded 36 decisions many of which were in response to the evolving global circumstances surround the coronavirus pandemic and the resulting effects on Rotary clubs and members. Read more to see a summary of these decisions as of April...

KINGSTOWN, St. Vincent and the Grenadines (May 7, 2020) – The Rotary Club of St. Vincent South has signed an MOU with Rotary Medical Equipment and Supplies Abroad Foundation Inc.(MESA) in Ohio USA, to donate a 40’ container of medical equipment and supplies. These supplies are valued at over US$500,000 and are donated to the people of St. Vincent and the Grenadines through the Ministry of Health, Wellness and The Environment.  The equipment was handed over to Central Stores on Wednesday, April 29th, 2020.
Rotarians in Lithuania and Chicago, Illinois, USA, are using their influence to promote the use of “bubble helmets” and potentially lessen the need for mechanical ventilators for COVID-19 patients who struggle to breathe on their own. The Rotary Club of Vilnius Lituanica International, Lithuania, participated in Hack the Crisis, an online event in March that brought together innovators in science and technology to “hack,” or develop solutions to, issues caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Members of the Lithuanian club, along with members of the Rotary Clubs of Chicago and Chicagoland Lithuanians (Westmont), joined a team to brainstorm ways to help COVID-19 patients breathe without using mechanical ventilators.
These are certainly interesting times we live in. None of us could have foreseen these extraordinary circumstances brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, caused by the novel coronavirus. Rotary clubs everywhere are wrestling with the question, How do we stay connected and maintain membership engagement during the pandemic? Well, this is Rotary and I am sure that these challenges will bring out our considerable strengths – ingenuity, decisiveness, flexibility, and integrity. Here are some ideas  as a guide to assist clubs in their efforts to stay connected and maintain membership engagement during these difficult times. The suggestions are not exhaustive, and many clubs will surely come up with new ideas as their ingenuity and adaptability finds new and innovative ways to maintain our fellowship. But we wanted to offer this guide to all clubs as they explore online meetings and other adaptive solutions.

Rotary Club of Coppell, Texas, USA: The power of strategic planning was on display, and I could not have been more excited. It was a Saturday morning in February, before the pandemic forced us all into stay-at-home mode. I was facilitating the ninth-annual planning event for the Rotary Club of Park Cities, Texas, with 39 members in attendance for the half day session. They had signed up to craft strategic action plans for 2020-21, the third year of a three-year strategic plan. This was a quarter of their membership! Now, admittedly, social distancing has created some new challenges for all of us in planning. But as we have all seen and heard, there are some pretty awesome tools available to stay connected virtually. And as Rotary has much to give the world in these unprecedented times, the value of strategic planning is as critical as ever. It is in that spirit that I look back and share what we were able to accomplish, hoping to encourage other clubs to enhance their impact by doing the same.
