Meet the Team
RFHA is directed by a 14 person Board of Directors comprised of Rotarian leaders from eight countries. RFHA is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia USA.
RFHA’s purpose is to provide assistance and support to Rotary clubs, districts and multi districts in planning and implementing large scale, community development and humanitarian service projects. Because the power of Rotarians influence at the community level is well known, RFHA has been successful in establishing partnerships and generating substantial funds for their programs.

My first Rotary moment was with RFHA. Visiting the informal settlements in Uganda provided me with a first hand account of RFHA’s great works in the world. It is my honor to serve on their board.

"It is a privilege to work with such a dedicated group of Rotarians. RFHA is enormously effective as an action group whose work in HIV AIDS education and prevention is well recognized. Their family health days provide wide spectrum health intervention and reach out to families and save the lives of thousands. I am delighted to re-join the Board."
