The threat of thunder storms didn't faze Rotarians... and the good weather came through!
Great night at the Fish Fry held on Friday, July 20th at Lakewood Park. A joint fundraiser for both our Club and Rotary club of Essex, the event was extremely successful, with close to 500 people in attendance. Proceeds raised will help provide clean water in Ghana.
Water is Life.
Humans cannot live without water, and yet many must either travel several kilometers daily to a far-away village to draw water or get it from ditches or ponds, which quite oftentimes carry waterborne disease, such as: cholera, typhoid and dysentery. The solution is to drill wells in villages to provide clean water. Through our Foundation, we have provided wells in more than 30 villages in Ghana, and yet still have many more villages requiring our help. As of 2018, each well with a hand pump costs an average of $6,000 to install. Windsor Rotarian Dr. Bacheyie says that “wells have reduced sickness and disease and have improved life expectancy. They have enabled more children to stay in school, as they no longer have to take time off school to go search for water”.
