Our Rotary Club District Governor, Jorge E. Pickett Hdez, has reached out asking for help for the towns of San Carlos and Guyamos where the destruction and devastation left in the wake of the hurricane has literally left hundreds homeless and in desperate need of everything from clean water to basic medical supplies.
