Five Reasons to Support the Foundation – #5 –

-Fighting hunger In Romania, orphans and sick children have eggs, milk, and meat because of a Foundation grant that benefits local farmers. The farmers are able to buy everything from animal feed to packaging materials. There is one stipulation: They must donate a portion of their products to children’s hospitals, schools, and orphanages.

– In Alaska, USA, the Rotary Club of Anchorage East is also fighting hunger by distributing food to low-income families through a mobile food pantry.

– Projects such as these help address the areas of focus of maternal and child health as well as economic and community development.

New Member – Joyce Chiu is a realtor who lives in San Ramon and works in Walnut Creek. Please introduce yourself to Joyce today and sign her member sheet.
