Dr. S.C. Yuter and wife Elinor (left) efforts finally succeeded when Briarcliff Manor, NY Rotary Club invited AIDSfreeAFRICA volunteer Betty Lewis to speak about her experience in Cameroon and AIDSfreeAFRICA president Rolande Hodel to receive a $500 donation. See related story on the Rotary Blog. Picture below shows Club President Dean Dykeman presenting the check.
Rotary Clubs focus their service mostly within their city communities, however, many also "adopt" an international project. NY and NJ Rotary Clubs of District 7230 have supported AIDSfreeAFRICA for years. However, Briarcliff promised follow-up and an ongoing collaboration.
Donations made to AIDSfreeAFRICA are invested in income generating activities, true to our motto to teach how to fish and not to just give fish....
AIDSfreeAFRICA is grateful for the good work Rotary is doing here in the US and abroad.
