The impact of Hurricane Matthew will be felt in our district as well as in Haiti & the Bahamas for a long time. Many Rotarians have asked how they can help.
Following a special district board, I will share with you what we learned about the impact of the storm and the ways in which you as Rotarians could help, if you so choose.

Would your club like to help fund this project?
This farm tractor is ready to ship to Cameroon. It will be delivered to an agricultural area in the foothills of Mt Cameroon where potatoes, carrots, peanuts, coffee and the like are grown. Presently the tractor they are using is old and in need of replacement. The village has 55,000 residents and rely on this harvest. Their children play a large role in tending to these crops.
It will cost $6,000 Canadian to ship this tractor on a RO-RO vessel to Cameroon. On arrival the R.C. of Limbe will deliver the tractor to the Awing Village.
Please email PDG Pete with your commitment. firstname.lastname@example.org
