Growing up in Masita, a small village in western Kenya, Angeline Anyango East witnessed human misery on a daily basis. But what stayed with her after she married American Bob East and moved to Pennsylvania was the way women suffered through the trials of childbirth.
 
“A woman might walk for an hour, then catch public transportation that bumped along bad roads for hours,” she said.  “And when she gets to the hospital there is no bed for her.  She either shares a bed without a mattress or takes her place on the floor.”
 
These women could not experience the joy of having a child.  
 
“When I had my first child in Pittsburgh,” she remembered, “I had a beautiful room. I vowed to  give at least one woman in Kenya a bed.”
 
She told her mother, still living in Kenya, what she wanted to do.
 
“Are you crazy child?” her mother responded. “You will be defeated. If the government can’t do it how could you do this yourself?”
 
“Just watch,” Angeline said.
 

We Care Solar Suitcase

This year's District Project will be to provide a life-saving aid to communities that have little or unreliable electrical service.
The We Care Solar Suitcase® is an economical, easy-to-use portable power unit that provides health workers with highly efficient medical lighting and power for mobile communication, laptop computers and small medical devices.  The We Care Solar Suitcase was originally designed to support timely and efficient emergency obstetric care, but can be used in a range of medical and humanitarian settings.
 
 
The Washington Rotary Club has decided that the Main Pavillion at Washington Park needs to be preserved as an important historical structure and a center for social and artistic activity in Washington.
Over the years, it has suffered the effects of weather and disregard. Now is the time to restore it to its former beauty.
Please help!

Since 1918, the Washington Rotary has been serving its neighbors here and around the world.

WASHINGTON ROTARY REACHES TO CHINA

Read the New Annual Report! Click!

 
The Rotary Club of Washington has approved an international project to support the China Little Flower Orphanage in Northern China in the Beijing Region.
 
The Club became aware of the needs through the efforts of Rotarian John Tecklenburg. Prior to moving to the Washington Area, John and his family spent five years in China as a part of John’s work for the Alcoa Corporation in China.
 
Seeing the need for humanitarian efforts with the people of China, John became aware of the orphanage and volunteered. Upon his return home the effort and support for the orphanage continued with trips back to China to work with the staff and children located there. China Little Flower registered in Nebraska in 1998 as a non-profit organization to provide much needed care for abandoned and orphaned children in China. Its work today is in the Beijing Region where the need for services is great.
