Clean water is the key to most things in life. It literally keeps us alive; clean and healthy. For many of us, this is something we do not even think about as all we need to do is turn the tap on anywhere in our home.  But for many, access to clean and safe drinkable water is a challenge. The number of people whom find themselves in this predicament is growing annually, but solutions are available. It simply takes money and knowledge.  

 

On Friday, September 30, on the community dock on the island of Saint Helene, a dedicated group of Rotary Club of Roatan members were able to participate and travel out to the Island of St Helene to assist with distributing the donated food bags from the Rotary Club of Oakville Trafalgar (Ontario, Canada) and the Rotary Club of Evergreen (Colorado, USA). Mr. Michael McCarry of Mount Sinai Hospitals in New York City, New York, donated 600 N95 masks and 250 Face Shields to the island which were also distributed on his behalf by Rotary members.
The 4th Annual Rotary Gala was a great success yet another year.
A great thanks to all supporters and volunteers for making this event a great success, with over 100 attended this event on December 7th, 2013 at Clarion Suites Roatan.
An evening fill with great entertainment; gift baskets raffles, live and silent auctions.

   The new classroom building is underway at P. Nufio School in Politilly Bight. The school approached local residents Janice Carter and Don Rocks to help buy a few blocks to start a new classroom. The students were meeting in the outdoors because the other 2 classrooms were overcrowded. This morphed into a project supported by the Roatan Children's Fund and Rotary Club of Roatan. At the ground breaking ceremony the village volunteer workers with the help of  Mr. Carson Dilbert had prepared the area, trenched the main outline and begun laying the blocks. The classroom will also have a small storage facility for sports equipment and supplies. Rotary President, Dr. Charles Parchment spoke on behalf of Rotary Club of Roatan reminding students that education is one of the most important elements of their lives. Rotary will not only contribute monies for materials for the classroom but will also repair the bathrooms as part of it's Banos Para Ninos Project. Dr Parchment hopes this type project will be supported in many more schools in need on Roatan.
