Welcome to the CMIRC website!
I just came back from a visit to the Rotary Club of Likas Bay in Sabah, Malaysia to join our Rotary friends in celebrating their club’s anniversary and had a wonderful time, seeing old friends and making new ones. One of the best things about Rotary, beyond our service work, is the fellowship and friendship that becoming a member of Rotary creates. I met the father of a friend of mine here in Chiang Mai recently who is also a Rotarian and he told me “Joining Rotary changed my life. It changed my viewpoint on the word, it changed the kinds of people I became friends with and socialized with. Joining Rotary introduced me to a world view that is not all about me but about those we are working together to help.”

What we are doing:
Currently our ongoing service projects include our Children’s Water Safety (Drown Proofing) project with the goal of reducing the drownings of young Thai children, our Children’s Sight Project, providing eye examinations and spectacles to poor children in Chiang Mai province. We also support The Mae Tao Clinic. We have been chosen by One World Play Project to distribute their “indestructible” footballs to poor and disadvantaged schools and learning centers. The BaBar Project helps teach young children to respect life. Each year we conduct a Winter Clothing Appeal supplying warm clothing to hill tribe children.
