A Thank You Letter to Rotary Club of San Marino from Bianca Cruz

To the Rotary Club of San Marino,

I wanted to thank the club for its continuous effort to support students like myself to achieve their higher education goals. In helping others, the club sets an example to those they help in serving above themselves. Since the beginning of the creation of the Rotaract Club of Cal State LA, San Marino has been a tremendous help and role model for us Rotaractors. Throughout my experience as a Rotarian and Rotaractor, I have seen how anyone can reach out to any Rotarian for help and will be helped. However, if that person happens to ask for help from a San Marino Rotarian, the club will go above and beyond to help that person. I know that whenever I have faced a challenge at Cal State, LA members like Bill Payne, Denise Wadsworth, Issac Hung, Gilda Moshir, and Fang Fang Ho have been the first to offer their wisdom and help. I especially want to thank San Marino Rotarian Lemaud James Nash for his outstanding help, support, and advice. I had always wanted to be a Rotarian, but after seeing how truly inspiring and helpful Mr. Nash and the Rotary Club of San Marino are, I knew I had to become a Rotarian immediately. If it were not for the club, I would not have achieved many things, including becoming an intern in Washington D.C. for the Panetta Institute for Public Policy.

The Rotary Club of San Marino is truly the club that makes a difference.

Kindest Rotary/Rotaract Regards
Bianica Cruz

Mr. Jean-Pierre Mainguy
The 2021-2022 President of San Marino Rotary Club

"My name is Jean-Pierre Mainguy. I have lived in South Pasadena for 20 years. I’m happily married to Barbara Hoskins who is an educational consultant with an office in Pasadena. She changes the lives of people every day. She has also been volunteering in Kenya for the last 15 years. I have 3 adult children. My two daughters live in France and I have 7 wonderful grandchildren. My son Pierre has created an NGO in Cambodia and lives there most of the year.
I was born in Paris in a family originating from Brittany, this Celtic province on the Atlantic shore, its rocky cape pointing straight at America. I spent my childhood in Africa where my father was a veterinarian. I went to school in Paris and studied Mathematics. After my Ph. D. I took a job with Hewlett-Packard in Germany. I worked at HP in different executive positions in 3 different countries: Boeblingen in Germany, Grenoble in France, and Geneva, in Switzerland. In 1998, I took a job at HP headquarters in Palo Alto. This is where I met Barbara and settled in Southern California for good. I worked for Amgen in Thousand Oaks and taught evening classes at the University of Redlands business school. I’m now retired and the time has come for me to help others in my community."

2020-2021 International Projects in The Rotary Club of San Marino

San Marino Rotary International Projects Committee is actively involved in International Projects, in line with the focus of Rotary International in preventing diseases, providing access to clean water and sanitation, enhancing maternal and child health, improving basic education and literacy, and helping communities develop.

Because of the pandemic time. There are few projects had temporary stopped continue work. There are two projects that we had completed in the year of 2020-2021.

AMBULANCE - RUN TA EK HEALTH CENTER CAMBODIA
The Tuk tuk ambulance provided a very rough and slow ride to critically ill patients needing transport from the Run Ta Ek village health center to a hospital in the city of Siem Reap. Patients died along the way, in one case tossed out of the ambulance during a particularly rough ride. The center serves 5 villages in the Run Ta Ek commune. Oct. 2020

EMERGENCY COVID – 19 AGRICULTURAL AID CAMBODIA In the summer of 2020, we funded the tourist industry has collapsed because of COVID -19 in Cambodia. Employees have gone back to their family in the villages putting severe pressures on these subsistence farmers. Provision of Seeds, Fish Fingerlings and Training to 200 families produce nutritious food very rapidly to meet emergency needs. Such produce includes snakehead fish, morning glory, and Chinese cabbage among others. Seeds will also be provided to produce high value added super foods (moringa leaves) and health tea (butterfly tea) for export.

Equipment for Hospital in Nakhon Ratchasima Province in Thailand
The Thailand Hospital Equipment project provides patient monitors, infusion pumps and pulse oximeter to a 60-bed hospital that serves about 68,000 people in South Eastern Thailand. Soeng Sang Hospital has adequate infrastructure funded by the government and qualified staff, but it lacks funds to buy and replace old and obsolete medical equipment. The lack of proper equipment not only impacts the quality of treatment, but places an unacceptable strain on human resources in a time when the patient population is rising. This is a Rotary Global Grant project with the involvement of the Rotary Club of Patumwan in Thailand and E-Club of 9920 Francophone.

Beds for Maternity Ward in Kabaale, Uganda
Buseesa Community Development Centre was founded in 2009 to start a microcredit program in Uganda. The organization has since expanded into education and healthcare. Since 2014, the school has grown from its initial two-classroom block with students in first and second grades to having 10 classrooms with 333 students. The health clinic serves over 3,000 patients with 169 babies delivered during the past 2 years. The clinic currently does not have sufficient space to meet the demand for childbirth, and hence the need to build a new maternity ward.
San Marino Rotary will provide 11 metallic beds with mattresses and install two 5,000 liter water tanks for water harvesting, solar panels to generate electricity and copper lightning arrester on top of the new 5 room maternity ward.
