ONE for La Palma

Tuesday, September 20, 2022

On September 19, 2021, the Cumbre Vieja volcano erupted on the Canary Island of La Palma. For 85 long days, the lava did not stop spreading through several municipalities on the island, causing the evacuation of more than 7,000 people and damages worth almost one billion euros. Three of the facilities damaged by the advance of the volcano have been single schools.

Faithful to the principle of supporting children and youth, Rotary Canarias has joined forces with the 10 Rotary clubs of the archipelago and, with the support of the Rotary district 2201 and the Humanitarian Foundation of Spanish Rotarians, have launched the project “ROTARY EDUCATIONAL CENTER IN LA PALMA” with the aim of building a school to replace one or more of the unitary schools destroyed by the eruption.  

ONE for La Palma

For its construction we have the support and commitment of the Government of the Canary Islands, which will provide the land and equipment. Rotary will be in charge of managing the work and raising the necessary funds, through multiple events and donations from Rotarians, clubs, citizens and companies from all over the world that are joining this project, in a wave of solidarity rarely seen.

Now is your turn!
