 World Community Service Update

The World Community Service Committee is currently pursuing  many projects, with a focus on these four:

  1. Building a storage shelter at the Hand of Help Orphanage in Botosani, Romania. The orphanage needs to have a storage for donated clothes, dry foods, and other items to dispense to the poor, widows, and orphans in this city of 100,000 people an 85% unemployment rate and average salaries of $100 per month. The approximate cost for the shelter will be $5,000. We are looking for any other clubs in our district who might want to contribute and be involved in this project.  Mike Hyodo will be returning to this city next year.
  2. A hands-on BBRC Mexico City trip. We will help with a building project and give bicycles to an orphanage. This will be over the President's Day holiday weekend in February 2001. The cost will be $534 for a roundtrip ticket on Continental Airlines. We are looking to bring some Sammamish High School students from the Spanish class with us.  If you are interested, please contact Jeff Cashman.
  3. Recife literary project. We are contributing $500 to a district project sponsored by the Recife Rotary Club of Brazil. This is the club that sponsored our exchange student, Marina Petribu, last year. We are looking for someone to be a contact person for this project.
  4. Esperanza.  We are looking to give support to Esperanza again this year.

We are also investigating the building of a dental clinic in an orphanage in Perm, Russia.
