Rotary New Zealand World Community Service remains in daily communication by telephone with Rotary Samoa. Sadly the number of deaths has now past 60.
 
To date Rotary Samoa have had made and delivered 82 beds with Vinyl Covered Mattresses and Side Tables, plus 6 Cots. In addition they have supplied 8 Wheelchairs, Tidy Containers and Hospital Consumables e.g. Kidney Dishes etc. Bereaved families will be given vouchers for food and other essential items.
 
RNZWCS is grateful for the donations that have been received from Rotary Clubs, Rotarians and the Public through its Appeal but the need is urgent and great so please continue support for this Appeal.
South Tawara Rotary Community Corps held one of its early literacy projects last week by giving out reading books and Rotary Usborne Pictorial Dictionaries to the International Preschool at Eita.  Head Teacher Mrs Talime Moote said that these will be very helpful for the teachers and the students especially as they have very few reading books in their resource library. She thanked STRCC for their charity and hoped they could continue to work with the preschool to expand their teaching resources over time. She noted that in addition to books, they have a dire need for toys and blocks for the children to play with.
On 13 November DG Gary Langford had the privilege to attend a presentation of 280 Usborne illustrated English dictionaries to students at Finlayson Park Primary School in Manurewa, the largest decile 1 school in the country.  He witnessed joy and smiles all around and was made aware again of the great effort the Bill and Lorna Boyd Charitable Trust, the Pakuranga Rotary Club and its auxiliary, are making to improve literacy standards.  Also assisting the purchase in this instance was the June Gray Charitable Trust, administered by the Newmarket Rotary Club.
On 6 November 2019, the official charter event for the Rotary Club of Tarawa was held at the Lagoon Club in the middle of the island.  Almost all of the 24 members of the club were present to receive their Charter certificate and for President Ruth to receive the chains of office from Tania Thomas, the President of the sponsoring Rotary club, the Rotary Club of Otahuhu in Auckland.  The event was attended by Mr Taoaba Kaiea, Minster of Women, Youth and Sport, and the High Commissioners for New Zealand and Australia.  Representatives of the local community were also present and we were entertained by traditional dancers from the area of Betio, in the west of the atoll.  The following is a overview of the need for a new club through to their future activities:
