At the initiative of one of our members
who comes from Bethlehem, the Rotary Club Zurich Circle International has
joined forces with the Rotary Club Bethlehem in Palestine to improve the unsatisfactory
drinking water situation in Bethlehem's schools. Approximately 180 schools with
around 70,000 pupils are affected.
water supply from Israel
of suitable storage containers
of water coolers connected to a filtration system
dependence on single use plastic bottles
public awareness of the importance of water conservation
We are looking for more clubs to support this project
together with us.
Having just initiated a major project in
Beirut (heart operations on children), we currently have only limited financial
reserves. The average investment per school is around CHF 2,500 - 3,000 and we
have set ourselves the goal of helping at least 25 schools in Bethlehem.
Please do not hesitate to contact us
should you have any questions. We would also be happy to provide you with a
more detailed project description in the form of a PowerPoint and/or we would gladly
present our project at one of your club meetings either in person or via Zoom.
