Mequon – Thiensville Rotarians’ international projects include:

Guatemala Mission

Annual Health, Dental & Vision Missions to Guatemala,  involving local doctors, dentists, eye physicians and more, who also pay their own way each year to serve approximately 1200 people in the remote and underserved village of Oliveros, and the surrounding area in Guatemala.

Clean Water Project

Eliminating  Water Borne Diseases in Kenya and Tanzania through mission trips to Africa, installing clean water & sanitation systems and offering free clinics, staffed with local volunteers who pay their own way to serve.

Eliminating Polio

Eliminating Polio from this planet:   Over the past 25 years,  Rotary volunteers and funds have helped cut new cases from 300,000 annually to only 223 in the world in 2012.  While only three countries remain polio-endemic — Nigeria, Pakistan, and Afghanistan — the world is at risk of outbreaks until all three stop the virus.
