This Week's Program: Karl Everett, International Projects in Bolivia
Karl Everett will be presenting the status of Harbortown Rotary International projects in Bolivia.   A grand opening had been planned for March 19th but was rescheduled due to the COVID-19 concerns. However, all Rotarians are all invited to join for the dedication on the Bolivia adventure in 2021.  Karl just finished the final report and it is very appropriate that this month’s Rotary theme is Maternal and Child Health Month. The goal of the project is to provide improved medical facilities for the families in the region who lack access to quality medical care due to the remoteness of the region.
 
Bolivia’s maternal death rate during childbirth is very high, and is the highest in Latin America. A rate that can be reduced dramatically through appropriate pre- and post-natal care and attended deliveries.  The new clinic and staffing by doctors will greatly improve the health care in the region.
 
Join us virtually via Zoom.
 
“I want to thank all the Rotarians and Clubs who supported the Tocopilla Bolivia Medical Clinic, and Mano a Mano Bolivia and International for their work to complete the medical clinic that became operational this past month.”
