Water Is Life: What We Rotarians Are Doing To Improve The Lives of Rural Bolivians

“When I see the District 5580 District’s newsletter name “Cross Currents” I think of water. Access to clean, potable water is a major concern throughout the world. Currently District 5580 Rotary clubs are working with Mano a Mano International (MMI), and in Bolivia (MMB) & (MMNM ) on medical clinics and to develop water wells for poor rural communities in Bolivia in need of clean potable drinking water.”

Thanks Rotary District 5580 for writing about your partnership with Mano a Mano! We are happy to work together with you, and many Rotary International clubs, to address the need for water and access to health care in rural Bolivia.
