Rotary Lending a Hand to sanitize water within all Public Schools of Lebanon

 

Rotary Clubs in Lebanon, with the support of the Lebanese Ministry of Education and Ministry of Public Health, are aiming to install water filters in all public schools of Lebanon.

Already 120 public schools were covered and the project first got implemented in Saida through Rotary Club of Saida.  The 3 years program aims to cover all 1,200 public schools of Lebanon with a budget exceeding two million dollors.

Rotary Incoming District Governor 2013-14 Jamil Mouawad  explains that it is impossible for Rotary to see a need in the community and not find ways to lend a hand, he adds by saying that “ Rotary will not watch this and stay quite while thousands of student life is at risk by drinking contaminated water, this is a moral commitment more than a mere project decision we take in rotary, and we are willing to ongo with this initiative despite the many challenges and financial burdens we have infront of us, we believe with right strategic planning from our side and efficient  alliance with the public, corporate, financial and governmental sectors we can make this happen”

 

The water sanitation program in Lebanon is a priority for Rotary Clubs in Lebanon and it is considered as one of  Rotary International’s main 6 focuses after reaching out to poverty, hunger, diseases, and illiteracy in the world, explains  Water Sanitation Committee  chairperson 2013-14 Paul Eddeh, adding  that “Rotary had investigated the drinking water situation in public schools of Lebanon within laboratories and found out that the filtration program is simply a must due to sever Lab test results inorder to decrease risky future consequences of ill health conditions among the Lebanese students”

In Addition, the success of this project lies in the united efforts of all Rotary clubs and individual members in particular, emphasizes District deputy Governor 2012-13 Samar Saab, she adds on by saying that “Hand in hand we can make this dream come true and sustain it for later years aswell, after all this is why Rotary exists, Rotary as an international volunteer organization which is non profit, non political and non religious and exists for more than 100 years now and in more than 150 countries with 1.6 billion members of business and professional leaders all  united to build good will, peace and reach out to humanitarian needs in all around the world”.
