Sunny

Odepiare (Sunny) Akuopha (know to us all as Sunny)  is a member of Bamako West Rotary Club in Mali.   Mali is one of several west African countries that make up District 9101.   Sunny has been selected by District colleagues to be their DG in 2022/23.

Colleagues first came across Sunny during the famous trip in the Pink Ice Cream van by the intrepid team of Rotarians from Upper Eden and Appleby.  Since then Rotarians in D1190, mainly north Cumbria, have supported a number of projects in this poor and terrorism affected part of Africa.   We have recently given support to a Covid 19 Prevention Project.

Sunny will talk to us about life & Rotary in Mali and in particular the effect that Covid 19 pandemic is having in the area.
