From Kansas, USA, to Lamut, Philippines:  United in Service Above Self
 

 
 
On December 8, 2020, it was raining hard in Lamut, Philippines.  Despite second thoughts, seven Rotary Club of Lamut members joined staff from Ifugao State University (IFSU)-Lagawe campus, as well as members of the 1404th Ready Reserve Infantry Battalion of the Philippine Army Reserve Command and the Hingyon Municipal Police on a long and slippery hike to Humalophop Elementary School located in rural Hingyon in Ifugao province.  To get to Humalophop one must hike through the forest, mountains, and rice paddies on a narrow path for 2 to 4 hours, depending on whether it is dry season or wet season.  Bridges over creeks are often two slippery logs laid next to each other.  Why would seven Rotary Club members walk through the hard rain during the wet season, up mountains and through rice fields, going to a very far place with university staff, soldiers and police? This is our story.

CELEBRATING 100 YEARS OF THE ROTARY FOUNDATION

Besides this being our club's centennial year, we are also celebrating the 100th birthday of The Rotary Foundation.  Created in 1917 with the $26.50 left over after paying the costs of that year's International Convention, the Foundation received just under $269 million in 2014-15 from Rotarians around the world.  Cumulatively The Rotary Foundation has advanced $1.2 billion toward the eradication of polio and $2.2 billion to support Rotary programs of humanitarian service.  Because of generous and sustained Rotarian donations, The Foundation fulfills its mission "to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty".  Rotarians are "Doing Good in the World", through our Rotary Foundation.
