Rotary Club of Marion, IL
Water Well Projects for
Third-World Countries
With its vast international grassroots network, Rotary initiates global and community-based projects to address a wide range of health risks that threaten the well-being of those without access to adequate health care. In Tamale, Ghana, Rotary club members helped to install 180 water wells and manual water pumps to serve some 60,000 residents. Locally, our club funds the Marion Medical Mission to build one water well per year in Africa. We also provide funds to the Health programs of Rotary International to provide clean water wells to help eliminate disease in Third-World countries. Each well costs $300.
