The Kposowa Foundation and Rotary Club partnered, and as a result my dad Jim, Kim Zook, and many other Rotarians raised $50,000 for wells in Bumpe Chiefdom. My father Joe in Sierra Leone said "Oh Sarah, the women in a neighboring village are dancing and singing because they don't have to drink dirty water any more. They don't have to walk miles for clean water anymore. Their children don't have to die because of water born disease." This all happened because my dad in West Virginia and my birth father in West Africa did this by working together, and because of Rotary Foundation Matching Grants!
