A waste water treatment facility for the Mero Beach is one project highlighted as a major undertaking of the Rotary Club of Dominica.
Rotarian Past President Adler Hamlet said the project, estimated to cost US$42, 300,00, is to “treat the water coming from the sanitary facility at the public convenience in Mero so that the discharge into the sea is almost as good as drinking water.”
The project is being undertaken together with local and international rotary clubs and has been on stream for the last three years.
“Because of the fact that this project has been in the making, for what we consider an extended period of time, there is need and we have made representation appealing to the private sector …for contributions and donations so that we can see the project to completion,” Hamlet noted.
The Rotary Club of Dominica today re-emphasized its commitment to community service, as it celebrates the 105th anniversary of the founding of Rotary.
A press conference this morning to highlight the work of the Rotary club, both locally and internationally, was among activities held to observe the one hundredth and fifth anniversary of Rotary International.
Rotarian Past President Gloria Tavernier pointed to a programme dubbed the VOSH Eye Care project, as another undertaking of the Rotary Club of Dominica. The program has been running for the past sixteen years and has provided eye examinations and spectacles to thousands of Dominicans.
The Rotary Club of Dominica also presented an EC$2, 000 cheque to the Dominica Diabetes Association.
