We have adopted a policy of initiating projects to benefit the community; nursing the projects to self sufficiency and then handing over the administration of the projects to the public maintaining a presence at committee level.
The aims and objectives of the foundation are to receive, raise, provide or donate funds for:
The relief of suffering, distress or poverty
The improvement of the living conditions or livelihood of the aged or disabled
The provision of recreation facilities for the young and needy
The operation of a Scholarship And Loan Fund for the benefit of students
The granting of scholarships or loans to needy students
To give out aid in any form to any charitable or worthwhile cause.
This policy has proved effective and beneficial to the public as it has enabled the Rotary Club of Penang to initiate worthy projects to meet the community’s needs as and when they arise without being tied down to any one project.
We help children who would die without cardiac surgery. Saving the lives of children who could be ours, by returning them lives which should be theirs. This programme is funded in partnership with New York Rotarians, matched by the Rotary Foundation Grants, subsidized by Penang Adventist Hospital non-profit surgical charges and generous gifts from the public.

Occasionally, classes in English, taught by Rotary’s exchange students from English-speaking countries are offered.
We provide nursing care to the elderly who are bedridden or immobile and give advice to caregivers of the patients. We have one full time nurse to visit the patients 2-6 times a month. Patients are mainly referred from hospitals, doctors or nurses.
