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.

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.

drawing; and 2D mixed medium and 3D art. The high school categories were: painting;

THE BUSINESS PLAN competition was coordinated with the help and guidance of Mr. Isaac Hung. Mrs. Courtney Rushing introduced each student during our meeting, then the students took the lead and delivered their innovative plans. A learning management system, boba tea shop, and other unique ideas highlighted some of the creative genius that exists in San Marino. The students never cease to amaze. The panel of judges consists of Rotarians Paul Brassard, Nicole Basseri and John Donovan had difficult time ranking these incredible entries.
