Two projects supported by Rotary Foundation Grants to install 28 water storage tanks 20,000 litres each in schools in Kamuli and Jinja, Uganda, are nearly complete

There may be some funds remaining at the end of this project and it is hoped – but no means certain – that The Rotary Foundation will authorise its use to benefit the local schools

Let’s hope they can combat the virus!



Haddehham Rotary are working with Thiruvaiyaru Rotary, Tamil Nadu, India, to prepare a Rotary Foundation  Grant application with an approximate value £35,000, to supply, fit and subsequently service and manufacture, prosthetic limbs for those unable to provide for themselves
