Famine story unites Rotary Clubs

March 7, 2011

It started with a radio report on a crisis in Uganda. The first half of the podcast contains this story. The report, heard by the Parkville, Missouri Rotary Club, lead to a project to do something about this crisis—a famine in northwestern Uganda. Parkville's Rotary Club collected $1000 in donations to fund a  school lunch program at Ociba Primary School in Arua, which has been particularly hard hit by the famine. Using the $1000 donation, the Arua, Uganda Rotary Club has bought food for the children and staff at the school. Recently, the Parkville Rotary agreed to extend their support of Ociba School's lunch program for one more year.  The second half of the podcast contains the story about my follow up visit to Ociba in January, 2011.
