Clubs from Rotary District 6940 and District 7020 have initiated a new partnership. Sunset Rotary Club of Tallahassee, Florida, US and Rotary Club Port au Prince/Champ de Mars of Haiti are looking forward to developing a Rotary relationship, fellowship and friendship to spread goodwill and bring clean water to the community of Dumay, Haiti.

On August 10th, 2013, three of our Sunset Rotarians depart for Dumay, Haiti for seven days. They are distributing water filtration systems, educating the community on the importance of safe drinking water, and beginning a long-term partnership with the community of Dumay and the Rotary Club of Champ de Mars.

We would like to acknowledge and thank Past President Marie Pétion L. Govain and International Chair Samuel Darguin for responding to our request for Rotarian support and friendship for this project. Samuel is graciously meeting with us in Dumay to learn about what we are doing with the clean water project. Samuel wants to share the community’s needs and identify how we can help the children in the surrounding areas of Dumay.

Our Sunset Rotarians were kindly invited to attend a meeting with the Rotary Club of Champ de Mars on August 14th in Port au Prince while they are visiting and conducting the clean water project. Both Marie and Samuel have been most helpful and we appreciate their commitment to partnership. The Sunset Rotary Haiti Team, Shawn Hamm, Debbie Williams and Elizabeth Chambers are looking forward to this endeavor as we Engage Rotary and Change Lives in the global community.
