Clean water and hygiene education can improve the health of children. That's the goal of Rotary International's Water, Sanitation And Hygiene (WASH) program. At today's meeting, Narayan Murarka from the Rotary Club of Barrington (Breakfast) informed the membership of the status of the work being done in Sumpango, a part of the Rotary Club of Guatemala Sur, which is part of Rotary District 4250.

The Barrington Breakfast Club has taken the lead on the Rotary International Challenge Grants program.  Of the 46 clubs that applied for these grants, Barrington was selected as one of the four winners. Their task was to solicit individual clubs within District 6640 to raise for this project. The Rotary Club of Cary-Grove was eager to participate in this endeavor. At today's meeting, President, Pat Finlon presented Narayan with the club's check, which will be matched by Rotary District 6440.
