The Ramat Aviv Club was established in 1967 and its membership represents a wide spectrum of professionals such as accountants, engineers, geologists, bankers, and others. Nowadays there are 14 active club members and 2 on temporary leave.
The Club is active in two under-developed neighborhoods of Tel Aviv:
* Adoption of the Community Centers for the Elderly in Neve Eliezer Quarter and Neve Sharet Quarter; * Refurbishment of a study hall and computers room for high school students in a Social Club for Youth in Jaffa, serving mixed population of Arabs, Jews and new immigrants from various countries. This was accomplished through a matching-grant project with our twin club in Italy – Milano Oest (District 2040);
The Club is granting annual scholarships to needy students at the Afeka Engineering College.
In the past the Ramat Aviv Club carried out a matching grant experimental project in the "Ha'Tikva" neighborhood in Tel Aviv, in cooperation with a US based Club and the support of the Rotary International Fund. The project focused on empowering parents who were found unfit to raise their children at home, and whose children were taken into boarding schools, with the objective of creating a situation where the children could return home.
On the international front, Ramat Aviv club members are active in the Israel-Italy, Israel-Romania, Israel-Serbia and Israel-Hungary ICC committees. The Club has Twin-Club agreements with the Milano Oest Club in Italy, with the Iasi Club in Romania ( District 2241 ), and currently established ties with the Vač Club in Hungary ( District 1190 ).
Since 2009 the Ramat Aviv Rotary Club is involved in a humanitarian project providing life-saving heart surgery and follow-up care for children from Romania. This project is carried out with the cooperation of:
• SACH – Save A Child's Heart, an Israeli based project with the mission to improve the quality of pediatric cardiac care for children from developing countries who suffer from heart disease;
• The Wolfson Medical Center ( W.M.C.) in Holon, a governmental non-profit hospital, which provides the children with the necessary medical services - hospitalization, surgery and medical treatment;
• The Rotary Club of Pitesti, our twin club in Romania, which supports the children's families and enables them to accompany their children going to Israel for treatment and surgery.
Until now 71 children from Romania have undergone surgery and have already returned home, and some 10 more are waiting for their turn this year. Within the framework of the project, Israeli doctors from W.M.C. visited Romania, as guests of the Rotary Club of Iasi, and held there a clinic for pre-operation consultations and checkup. As a result 48 children were checked at the clinic, out of which 19 have been scheduled for surgery in Israel.
The families of these children get the support of the Iasi Rotary Club all the way up to their arrival in Israel, when the Ramat Aviv Rotary Club takes over in supporting the families.
