ROTARY CLUB OF BOCA RATON
March 2nd, 2016, NEWSLETTER
Dear Rotary Family,
I want to thank you again for all the support and love you have shown to the UHAI Makwale Clinic in Tanzania. I have received video and pictures of the (16) metal beds and medications that they purchased with the money we raised. Because of YOU people in Tanzania now have a place that they can rest their bodies and medications to heal their diseases.
Thank you for "changing lives and building futures" in the most literal way it can be done! Slideshow/video coming soon!
Your family in service,
Rachel and Jody Huerta
