500 Rotary Barrel Appeal for Maasai Tribe

Over 100 Rotary Barrels delivered, more on the way…Uganda, Sierra Leone, Kenya and ZAMBIA…. all thanks to Rotarians

Over the past few months Rotarian Bill Leslie has taken the Roll Out the Rotary Barrel message to Rotary clubs in the North East.

The response was tremendous and everyone offered support in one way or another. ROTB was not quite ready at that time to accept donations as they were organising a pilot programme in Uganda. One in Sierra Leona another in Narok, Kenya. This week 20 to Zambia!

We are pleased to say we have moved on to organising a larger consignment to the Maasai tribe in Northern Kenya. We are establishing appropriate links with Rotaries in Kenya to accept and distribute the barrels and also some Aquapumps and even Lifestraws.

For all these clubs who offered support we would now appreciate those pledged funds as we want to send 500 barrels to Kenya at the end of the month. We have an opportunity to send these with no transport costs, as these are being paid by NPCA who ship containers all over the world.

So fellow Rotarians, thank you for your support, thank you for your pledges, in some cases thank you for your cheques.

If you are prepared to offer your continued support we would appreciate either the funds or a committed pledge which can be underwritten until such times as your payment can be arranged. We have a real opportunity to make a real difference right here, right now!
