Our club strives to help our local community and to make a difference around the world. Our members teamed up to make a donation in support of Mayan villagers near Chiquimula Guatemala who are suffering under the pandemic restrictions they have to live with. We collected $5,120 CDN generously donated from our club members. We have forwarded this money down to our Rotary partners in Chiquimula and they have started purchasing and distributing the food and other necessities to the villagers! Based on this donation, our Rotary club applied for a matching grant from our Rotary District. It has now been approved and we will soon be sending down an equal amount!! Our efforts, which began as hoping to get a few hundred dollars has, through your generosity, grown to over $10,000 CDN. This will make a huge difference in the lives of many of the villagers which is what makes giving so rewarding and important. (April, 2020)
