Dear Members of the Rotary Club of Mississauga-Lakeshore,
We wish to thank you again for your donation to our international program,
Rotary Wheels for Learning.
Your donation provided 40 much-needed bicycles for Cambodian students, making the difference between getting an education and staying home. In rural areas, the bicycle is also the vital link for a family to get to a medical clinic or market.
Enclosed is a photo and the hand-signed forms of your sponsored children.
A total of 1,231 bicycles were distributed in January/February 2013 by our team of 19 Rotarians and Friends! Many bicycles were distributed to rural children in Battambang Province, one of the most severely landmined provinces where there has been little support for landmine-affected families. Other target areas included rural Takeo and Koh Kong provinces and to children who live surrounding the Phnom Penh garbage dump.
Please visit the above websites to see photographs of this year’s bike distribution ceremonies and the recipients.
Once again – Thank you for your generous support.
Patrick Bongers, Chair
Rotary Club of Gravenhurst
