Several clubs in Rotary District 7040 have joined the Cornwall Sunrise Rotary Club supporting a one year project which focuses on education, early detection and treatment of Buruli Ulcer, a disease which affects skin, and if left untreated can also affect the bone, with a devastating impact on its victims. It is endemic in the Ashanti Region of Ghana where this disease affects children in poor rural communities primarily and can result in long costly hospital stays, and significant morbidity and disability rates. The clubs are working with the ABURA Foundation.
 

 
 
WEEK 37 DO ALL OF OUR COMMUNITY SERVICE PROJECTS HAVE TO BE DONE THROUGH THE FOUNDATION?
 
The answer is no, however it is a wonderful way to get involved in your community. Community service projects are born when Rotary clubs from two or more countries join together to accomplish a community service project. These projects link and connect ideas from Rotary Clubs needing extra help with clubs in other countries that are willing to provide funds, materials and technical and professional assistance. Please share your service projects with the Rotary world and friends of Rotary by going to www.rotary.org, www.ideas.rotary.org and then sharing your project on Rotary showcase.
