Wanted: Good Samaritans 
by Dr. Barbara Brothers
If you haven’t yet read the December issue of Rotary please get out your copy and check out the work of a Nepal Rotarian doctor who is working to provide basic care, that of an Arizona doctor working on a global grant to bring telemedicine to remote areas, or the efforts of other  Rotarians to improve health care here and abroad. And you might want to dig out past issues and read about the work of other Rotarians that have been featured such as Deepa Willingham or to learn about how Rotary has contributed to the fight against Covid-19 through partnerships formed through polio eradication efforts. Read all the stories here
This story, like all issues of Rotary, expand our knowledge of the places in which Rotarians are at work and of the variety of professions and work that others do that are essential to our well being. We encourage you to make time to read it.


Mike Latessa
Compiled by Debora Flora 
What makes Mike Latessa special? It’s how he connects the Rotary motto to his experience as a traveler in South Africa, for starters. It’s his longtime commitment to playing and coaching football and what he contributed to one of YSU Football’s championship seasons. He even has a connection to Kentucky Derby history!

Inspirational Projects 
A look at Rotary Club service projects with dramatic + lasting impact meant to inspire  

Aquabox is a community project set up by the Rotary Club of Wirksworth, Great Britain to provide safe drinking water, through the use of filtration units, and humanitarian aid to crisis zones around the world. Since its formation in 1992, Aquabox has distributed more than 110,000 boxes to over 50 countries in response to natural and man-made disasters, helping hundreds of thousands of people in the process. 

Each Aquabox Gold Box, as seen here, is tailored to support a family group. It contains water purification filters as well as a wide variety of humanitarian aid items to help with shelter and shelter building, lighting, cooking and feeding, educational development, and hygiene.

If you would like to personally sponsor one or more Aquaboxes or create a fundraiser to support this effort, learn more here.
