Rotary International Vice President Anne Matthews (and District 7770 Rotarian) is leading a team of South Carolina Rotarians to Ghana on a goodwill mission. Please enjoy her own narration of the trip.
In a village in Ghana where Rotary gave them wells for clean water . They gave Walter Hughes and me the very best they had. I got four guinea fowl and Walter got a goat. We were honored to receive them. I know you want to know what we did with them. We gave them to the next village we went to. And we bought several goats (about $32 each) and gave to kids in villages, as they asked for them. This is a livelihood for a family. This trip makes me value my blessings at home. I gave pencils to children who prized them. The children are beautiful and need so much. Ron Morton, a member of the Sumter Club, got to see a well being dug in Ghana. He and Andrea are on this trip to Ghana. Two ladies from the Eau Claire Club are with us –Benetta ( a past president) and Norma. Carrington and Barry also came along from the Florence Monday Club.
