Clean Water for Ghana
A grant brings clean water to thousands in Ghana.  Worldwide, more than 748 million people live without access to clean water and at least 3,000 children die each day from diarrheal diseases caused by unsafe water.  Rotary is working to change that. For example, members used a Rotary grant to drill more than 20 clean-water wells and to repair another 30 in villages across Ghana.  The project also included education about and treatment of Buruli ulcer, a debilitating infection that if untreated can lead to disability and death.  Nearly 70,000 people will benefit from this initiative.
