Dear Friends and Supporters,

I forward to you the letter from The Rotary Foundation confirming the completion of the successful Global Grant # 1874107, Community Potable Water System for the communities of Las Mercedes y Palmar in Manabí, Ecuador. Thank you all so very much for your donations to make this dream a reality.

The Rotary Club of Bahía de Caráquez has now completed seven of these projects bringing safe water to the homes of about 1800 families so far... a successful effort that would never have been possible if not for the goodwill of many Rotarians, Club and Districts like yourselves.

Many thanks for your commitment and confidence,

Saludos cordiales,
