Bath Rotary Club spearheads effort to help village in Ghana.

 
Deacon Ray Defendorf and Mike Slovak, of the Corning and Bath Rotary clubs, respectively, will travel to Ghana to finalize plans for a Rotary International project to support the village of Ko.
The Bath Rotary Club became involved when it learned of the needs of the people of Ko in the Upper West Region of Ghana, a community so remote and impoverished that most of its residents have no electricity, running water or public sanitation.

These needs were brought to the club’s attention by Father Peter Anglaare, formerly of Ko, who had traveled to the United States to serve parishes in the Southern Tier, including those in Bath and Hornell. Although Father Peter is now a U.S. citizen, he returns to Ko regularly and donates much of his income to assist his village, especially with educational needs, according to a press release from Bath Rotary.

Bath Rotary Club is teaming with the Rotary International Foundation, the Rotary Club of Bolgatanga in Ghana, other Rotary Clubs of District 7120 including Corning, Ontario-Walworth, and Wayland, as well as individual donors to help the people of Ko. The goal of the combined effort is to provide for the purchase of mosquito nets for the people of the community, medical equipment and supplies for the local clinic, sewing machines with the training to use them effectively, and scholarships for girls going into high school.


Anyone interested in more information should contact Michael Slovak, Bath Rotary Club International Projects Chair, at (607) 769-4900 or slovakmj@gmail.com. Donations can be sent to Bath Rotary Club, P.O. Box 648, Bath, NY 14810.
Checks should be made out to “Bath Rotary Foundation.”
