Okotoks Rotary Doing Good Work in Mexico

 

ImageIn a little Town in South West Mexico 6 Okotoks Rotarians along with 4 spouses partnered with members of the Sylvan Lake and Red Deer Rotary Clubs to bring over 300 Wheel Chairs to needed people in the southern parts of Mexico around Huatalco. The clubs raised the money, purchased the chairs, shipped them off to Mexico and then travelled to Mexico to unpack and assemble the Chairs. They ten did work days helping people get a chair and teaching them how to manage them.
