Hanover Rotary Club sends School Supplies to Africa

Posted on Wednesday, October 11, 2017 at 1:13 pm

Hanover Rotary has been helping children in Monrovia, Liberia, Africa since 2001. The first projects were deep water wells for clean potable drinking water where none was available before.

Hanover Rotary started giving assistance to Lott Carey Mission School since 2009. The Club sends school supplies every year to augment the limited amount they can purchase. The student body consists of 450 children K-12. The supplies needed include Rain gear, boots, new underwear and medical supplies.

The area is one of the poorest in the world, 85% of the population is under the international poverty level, and still struggling from the devastation of Civil War and Ebola.  For more information hanoverrotary.org or jhenicheck2@gmail.com
