The Rotary Club of Ottawa is now a member of the Impact Hub Ottawa community where we are holding our meetings and connecting with other community builders here in the capital.


We are offering Club meetings 4 times a month – 2 midday meetings and 2 early evening meetings with new engaging meeting formats that give our members increased opportunity for friendship and meeting times that are convenient for younger Rotarians who work, female Rotarians with family commitments, as well as current and prospective members.

Rotary Peace Centers

Reducing Infant and Maternal Deaths in Zimbabwe

The Rotary Club of Ottawa is working with the Sunnybrook Health Center in Toronto and the Harare Dawn Rotary Club, Zimbabwe, to arrange for the shipment of 32 infant incubators to Harare for installation at the main hospital. These have been donated by Sunnybrook and have been packed into 3 shipping containers. The Harare hospital lost their infant incubators in a fire earlier this year. The transportation cost is CAD$24,000 and the Rotary Club of Ottawa is anxious to work with interested Rotary Clubs to have the incubators shipped in January of 2020. 
Thank you so much to the generous Rotarians who contributed to this very successful effort in support of R.E. Wilson School.  With your help we filled 3 hampers with lots and lots of gifts!  They were delivered to the school this past Monday and received with much appreciation.
Here is a picture of the finished hampers.
