CIREC project in Colombia (Phase One)
by Kaj Pedersen
BBRC members learned about the CIREC project that is based in Columbia. We will be donating a total of $5,000 to the project as it rolls out.
In Phase One, BBRC contributed with $1,000 and through leveraging mechanisms, the total amount of this project was $8,000, benefiting thousands of people, most of them victims of personal mines.
This project mapped squarely to our Rotary peace area of focus and was led by the Lake Forest RC in partnership with RC Santa-Fe in Colombia and us.
Another excellent example of how Rotarians coming together can make an impact in the cause of Peace.
