When the Rotary Club of Scarborough heard that there was a further need at the Depkor School in Ghana, we decided we could help. We have worked with Carol in the past, supplying meals for the very poor children who attend this school, and found out she is a 1 person organizing committee to help this school. In Ghana, Carol's good friend Linda receives any shipments, to make sure they go to the children who need them This time, the call was for running shoes and notebooks for their schoolwork. We collected 30 pair of slightly used running shoes, and 60 pair that are brand new! There were notebooks and pencils and pens, etc., so the kids don't have to just write their lessons in the sand. With a little bit of money added, Carol was able to get all this to the shipper right away, so we know the children will receive them shortly.
Just one small way that Rotary Serves Humanity!
