Guatemala Catorce 2014

Image

The Rotary Club of Freedom’s International Service Committee has funded a project in Guatemala. Twenty Santa Cruz area Rotarians spent six days in Guatemala conducting international service. The group attended the Uniendo America Project Fair in Antigua, Guatemala (January 30 - February 1) and then proceeded on to Uspantán, a municipality in the Guatemalan department of El Quiché, to conduct a three-day health clinic (February 2 - 4). 

The group consisted of members from the Rotary Clubs of Freedom, Santa Cruz Sunrise and Scotts Valley and was joined by Rotary District 5170 Governor Angie Hassler and her husband and past district governor, Roger, as well as Kathy and Joe Hamilton.  Mr. Hamilton is immediate past District 5170 governor, 2012-13. The clinic included vision screening, lessons on effective hygiene, and dental care. Over 500 school age children were accompanied by their teachers and in many cases parents for the health service.  The children received toothbrushes and were given shoes. Optometrists in the group provided more than 150 pairs of eyewear to children and adults with conditions of near-sightedness, far-sightedness, or astigmatism.


The Rotary international service project is third of its kind to the people of Uspantán conducted in the past four years.
