Clean Water Project
Project Summary: Help the Rockville Rotary provide clean water to the residents of Bossier
Operation Simbi update as of 9/9/2020 – water for 2000 people in Bossier, Haiti
Our fundraising target is $10,000 and to this point we are more than half way at about $5400 and counting. Most contributions are small but it adds up fast so all help is welcome. Corporate sponsorships are also very welcome and we will make sure that they receive wide positive publicity. Donations should be made to the Rockville Rotary foundation (a 501(c)3, tax deductible) and please clearly marked for operation Simbi.
The simple plan is to engage a reliable drilling company as soon as the $10,000 is raised. We’re locally connected in the area in Haiti and we know whom to hire. Once the drilling company is scheduled, drilling should only take a few days and then people will have water.
