Henry County Rotarians make an impact on hurricane victims in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean

This year we met with the Governors from the Rotary Districts in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean during our Zone Institute in Orlando, Florida, in October 2017.They told us that their needs included projects to repair homes, schools, and water supplies for their families affected by hurricanes. To fulfill that request we have applied donations from individual Rotarians and Rotary Clubs of District 6900 to those projects. There have been individual donations from Rotarians to the District Charitable Fund for this effort and from Rotary Clubs. The Rotary Clubs of Dunwoody, Sandy Springs, North Atlanta, North Fulton, Muscogee, and Henry County have all contributed to our Charitable Fund.

These donations have been designated for Aqua Box water filters for Puerto Rico and the Caribbean, and for home roofing project requests by the Rotary Club of Dominica. Your donations go to the Rotary Action Group – Disaster Network of Assistance (DNA – RAG) for the roofing projects in Dominica, and Aqua Box in England (run by Rotarians) to provide family and community water filters.
