Rotary rewards resilience with help By HANNAH SPYKSMA Helping hand: Rotary International president Ray Klinginsmith, pictured planting a tree in the friendship grove at Auckland Domain, says the networks of Rotary have reached out to support Christchurch. Photo: JASON OXENHAM ' Rotary is an amazing family and people just want to reach out and help. ' Rotary Down Under spokeswoman Beryl Robinson The strength of New Zealand- ers in the face of tragedy has impressed Rotary s inter- national president. American Ray Klingin- smith, who was last in New Zealand a week before September s earthquake, was back a week after the devas- tating February 22 shake. He was here to present at a conference for incoming Rotary presidents from around the country and says his impression of New Zea- land is that of a resilient nation. I have always admired and respected the citizens of New Zealand and they deserve the accolades of the Rotary world as they cope with the aftermath of the earthquakes. The longstanding member stayed in the badly damaged Grand Chancellor Hotel in Christchurch when he visited in August and says it is just tragic thinking about what has happened since that trip. Despite the earthquake he has been encouraging members from around the world to visit New Zealand, saying people shouldn t be put off holidaying here. While in Auckland, Mr Klinginsmith planted a tree in the Rotary friendship grove at Auckland Domain, a tradition for the organis- ation s presidents dating back to 1932. He says it s strong bonds such as this tradition that are particularly relevant at the moment, with groups from around the world mobilising to support Canterbury. Local and international chapters responded immedi- ately after the 6.3 magnitude quake hit, Rotary Down Under spokeswoman Beryl Robinson says. In the 48 hours following the powerful shake, $200,000 had already poured in from networks ranging from China to Denmark and Bulgaria. Rotary is an amazing fam- ily and people just want to reach out and help. Mrs Robinson manages the organisation s South Pacific magazine, which was about to go to print when the earth- quake happened. She managed to stop the press in time to get a photo and front page story sorted and has been amazed at the response. Rotorua district members have knitted 50 quilts since February 22 and sent them to Christchurch Hospital for victims. One was given to young amputee victim Kento Okuda, who was trapped in the CTV building. He is taking the quilt back to Japan with him. The Katikati branch donated $10,000 to relief efforts and offers of accommo- dation and getaways from members nationwide and in Australia have flooded in.
