From the Sun Lakes (Arizona) Rotary Club

(Editor's Note:) Last year CMIRC made a donation to this project in honor of former member, Bill Kipp who split his time between Chiang Mai and Sun Lakes.  He had to return to Sun Lakes to live full-time after a health crisis that has sadly left him unable to participate in Rotary.  In researching this project, I was surprised to learn that many members of the Navajo Nation, U.S. citizens, live in worse conditions than the hilltribe people we serve in Thailand.  

Here is the update from Sun Lakes RC:

Presently we have achieved the installation of 31 indoor water systems of the 33 homes supported by this Rotary Foundation Global Grant.  The remaining two (2) homes will be installed September 25 and 26 and our International partner, Brantford-Sunrise Rotary Club, District 7090 in Ontario, Canada will be attending with our Sun Lakes Rotary Club to provide hands-on participation.  This is Rotary in Action.

Again, we THANK YOU for all the support provided by:

  • 9 Rotary Districts (4 USA and 5 International)
  • 43 Rotary Clubs (17 USA and 26 International)
  • The Rotary Foundation
