We are a team of Rotarians from over eighty Rotary Clubs in twelve U.S. States, two Canadian Provinces, Switzerland, and Ghana. We are working together to reduce Buruli Ulcer and other neglected tropical diseases. We were involved in the eradication of Guinea Worm Disease! Over eighty Rotary Clubs raised funds to achieve these goals. Samuel Obour is the Past President of the Sunyani Central Rotary Club. We have grants supporting Sunyani Central Rotary Club in the Brong Ahafo Region, Tamale Rotary Club in the Northern Region, and Bolgatanga Goodwill Rotary Club in the Upper East Region of Ghana.
Walter Hughes, Jr., District 7570 Grants Chair and Past-President of the Rotary Club of Rocky Mount, VA USA is leading the effort in the USA. The initial goal was to raise money for one well. The team of Rotarians raised over $1.1 million in clean water Rotary humanitarian grants. The contributions raised are usually matched by the Rotary District, the Rotary Foundation, and the Georg Fischer Jubilee Clean Water Foundation. A $100 contribution to the Rotary Matching Grant will turn into $500 when all of the matching funds are considered. We are also partnering with many non-profit and non-governmental organizations to be able to accomplish these goals. Please check out our list of partners on our partners page.
