Donations in Kind (DIK) is a recycling and reuse program, focussing on health and education and involves the collection, sorting, packing, dispatch and distribution of donated items to countries in need of these goods.
Many goods and products, for which organisations in Australia have no further use, are valuable commodities in needy countries overseas and within Australia. We focus on Education & Literacy, Health & Wellbeing and Vocational.
The goods for distribution need to be in good condition and have a useful life expectancy. For a list of the range of goods needed, please refer to Suitable and Unsuitable Goods
DIK is moving and needs your help!
DIK is moving from our warehouse at Minchinbury to new premises at Castle Hill at the end of 2017. We are calling on Eastern Region Rotary Clubs to come and join us for a working bee and lend a hand to sort through stock and eliminate the goods not required.

Donations in Kind have developed a facility to register consignments to overseas destinations. We request that all Rotary Clubs and Rotarians consigning containers or pallets of goods to overseas destinations use our Donations in Kind Depots and this facility. The purpose of this facility is to record all consignments by ROTARY in one place so that when shipping companies contact RAWCS looking for the consignee of a container we can direct them to the person responsible and supply any relevant documentation.
