Rotary to Receive UN Association's Humanitarian Award

The United Nations Association of New York will honor Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation of RI with its 2007 Humanitarian Award on 25 October, in recognition of Rotary’s significant efforts to provide safe water and sanitation and its commitment to sustainable development worldwide.

“In the years since RI has started focusing on water as one of its annual service emphases….. We’ve learned just how much can be accomplished with relatively little, how a single small water project, perhaps a pump or a filter, can change the life of a community,” Says RI president Wilf Wilkinson.  “However, our work has also included participation in many other major water projects.”


The award is presented annually in observance of United Nations Day (October 24).  This year’s award ceremony will focus on the global water crisis.  Professor Jeffrey D. Sachs, Director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University and special adviser to the UN Secretary-General, will serve as Honorary Chair of the event.
