Sister City

The luncheon with our Sister City guests has become an annual tradition, but this year it held greater significance as we await Rotary International's response to our application for a Global Grant.  Edifice Roque, Laboratory Director for the Center for Investigation, Work & Environment, Medical School at National Autonomous University of Nicaragua, updated us on the progress of this multi-year project to ensure clean water to the area of Quezelquaque, Nicaragua.  Along with the rest of the visiting team from Quezelquaque and the members of the Sister City Project here in Brookline, we learned that we now have a greater idea of the source of water contamination thanks to the research already completed. Brookline Rotary's grant will help to implement the needed changes to positively impact the delivery of clean water and educate the local citizens.  This project will hopefully have a lasting effect on the health of the citizens of Quezelquaque.
