ABOUT US

RC Bangsar Logo_2012On May 16th 1984, Rotary Club of Bangsar was chartered under the sponsorship of Rotary Club of Damansara. Lead by PP Mahadev Lalchand (PHF), our Chartered President, and a group of enthusiasts, the first Rotary Club of Bangsar meeting was held at Station Hotel, Kuala Lumpur.

Over the years, Rotary Club of Bangsar had had many Past Presidents to grow the club from the humble 34 members originally to 50 members as to date with a continuous effort and aim to grow the membership annually. Furthermore, Rotary Club of Bangsar, under the leaderships and guidances of the Past Presidents, had adopted many flagship projects such as River Cleaning projects and has undertaken the following:

  • Community and other service projects to assist, support and aid the disadvantaged in our society, namely the environment, the poor, the elderly, the sick, and the handicapped.
  • The youth and the children – another category of the society that the club has worked with tirelessly as they represent the hope for the future.

On top of that, Rotary Club of Bangsar has sponsored 3 Rotary Clubs, namely The Rotary Club of Bandar Sunway (1993), The Rotary Club of Brickfields (1994) and The Rotary Club of Melawati (2000). Rotary Club of Bangsar didn’t stop there because in 1988, under the leadership of PP Charlie Chan, we sponsored the Rotaract Club of Bangsar and Rotaract Club of Methodist College Kuala Lumpur (MCKL) in 2012 under the leadership of PP Dr. Ernest Yeoh.
