Last Tuesday, October 16 was World Food Day and Rotary had a goal to collect 2 tonnes of food.
The Rotaract Club of May Pen partnered with the Rotaract Club of Ibicarai, Brazil (@rotaractibi) and donated food items, weighing ~28kg to a mother and her 5 children who recently lost their home and possessions to a fire.
They also donated clothing to the family and stationery for the children.
The family was grateful for the donations. Kudos to the Rotaract Clubs of May Pen and Ibicarai to help a family get a start after tragedy.
***If you would like to donate to the family, you can contact the Rotaract Club of May Pen***

The Rotary Club of Ocho Rios East is a Non-Profit Organization that serves in their Communities and offers various Benefits to their members, just as other Rotary Clubs. The Rotary Club of Ocho Rios East is a part of Rotary International, in particular, Rotary District 7020 with clubs from Jamaica and other Caribbean islands.
Earlier this year in March, Rotary Ocho Rios East donated a Water Tank to the St. Ann Infirmary. They also found time in the same month to Plant 18 Trees, representing each of their members in the Blue Mountains area.
While the Blue Mountains area has a lot of vegetation, it is also a World Heritage Site. They chose that area to plant the trees because they saw it as an opportunity to contribute to its maintenance and of course preservation of the environment.
Rotary Club of Ocho Rios East has a new Instagram page and I encourage readers to follow it. For my Suga Bears in Ocho Rios, if you are above 30 years, I would like you to consider joining their Rotary Club. You wouldn’t only be helping less fortunate Communities and others, but you will help improve yourselves too.
