We have teamed up with Inova Blood Donor Services to host a blood drive and would like to take this time to ask you to donate blood. There is no substitute for blood; it can only come from a volunteer blood donor. Currently less than 38% of our population is eligible to donate blood. If you are eligible to donate blood, please click on the link below to make your appointment today.

Donating blood is safe, simple and only takes about one hour.

Hope to see you there!

Hurricane María created health, medical, safety and security hazards, plus additional environmental and socio-economic issues in Puerto Rico. Now it lacks electricity, ICT (cell, Internet) and water services; and is suffering supplies and fuel shortages. Floods and debris are blocking roads. Life went on in darkness, isolation and little means of communication.

To complement first-responders’ efforts, the LIGHT FOR PUERTO RICO PROJECT (LFPR)  will provide 100 vulnerable families in hurricane-devasted Puerto Rico with  3-in-1 solar and crank powered devices (Flashlight, USB enabled cell/tablet charger, night lamp) which runs from 7 to 48 hours on a single charge, providing light and enabling mobile communication from affected people   with  first-responders, medical services and police, as well as their community and individual support systems. The donation has been possible thanks to DCDuckRace funding.  (http://www.dcduckrace.org/)

This week, a team of Rotarians from the Rotary Club of Washington, D.C.  and the Rotary Club of Arecibo, Puerto Rico worked together to procure the items and  participate in a packaging event in Pentagon Row Mall . Next week, the donations will be sent to Puerto Rico to be distributed to most-in-need families in the rural areas close to Arecibo.

 

 

The Rotary Club of Washington DC and, in conjunction with Rotary International, has been honored Nyumbani-USA in recognition of our humanitarian support to HIV+ Orphans Children in Kenya during the past years. Rotarian Maria Nelly Pavisich was the project lead for this Global Grant.
