International Service

Larry King, director

Our service is global

International service encompasses actions taken to expand Rotary’s humanitarian reach around the globe and to promote world understanding and peace.

  • Sister Club program — The club has recently formed a partner relationship with Rotary in La Paz, Mexico, to collaborate on projects of mutual interest and cultural enlightenment.  La Paz is located in the southern area of Baja, near Cabo San Lucas.
  • Oduoro Village — The club has supported economic development of this impoverished Ugandan village for a number of years.  Currently, the club and several of its members support vocational scholarships for youth from the village.
  • Children’s Health Projects — The club is actively involved in a coalition of Rotary District 5330 clubs called CHIPs — Children’s Health International Projects.  Through CHIPs, Murrieta Rotary sends medical missions to impoverished parts of the world to do surgical repair cleft lips and palates on kids in need.  Closer to home, we are part of quarterly, two-day  missions to Ensenada, Mexico, where we assist in staffing and supporting the Thousand Smiles dental clinic, providing cleft lip and palate repairs on a more limited basis, but also other dental care for the poor youngsters in that area.  This program offers more members hands-on experience with international service.
