Gosford North Rotary Club has visited Madagascar eight times over the past few years delivering essential aid. They have been involved in a RAWCS approved program that distributes medical equipment, wheelchairs, SewAid, solar lights, blankets as well as setting up many programs including orphanage building, Skyjuice water project, carpentry skills building, school desk building, educational supplies.

 

On 6th June 2018, we are off again! This time we are taking in 1,112 RAWCS approved solar lights & undertaking a major water project. The people of Madagascar are experiencing the worst drought in many decades. We have raised some $20,000 to purchase materials to fund a two kilometre gravity fed water pipeline from a natural spring in the mountains down into a 'parched' village of 2,200 people.

Can you please help us? We are just $3,500 short of funds necessary to upgrade 12 existing, but damaged water points. We will be able to complete the work with this assistance.

On our return we would be pleased to visit your club with stories & testimonials.

 

We are so thrilled to be joined on this trip by Mr Howard Sullivan, Hydrogeologist, from Crows Nest Club. Please contact Madagascar project organiser Peter Pearce if you can assist the wonderful yet disadvantaged people of Madagascar. PS If you would love to join us on this trip, applications are open, leaving on 6th June.

 

Kind regards, YIR,
