The Rotary Club of Hershey partnered with District 7450, RC of Quito Occidente and other clubs to help fund a project to improve community health in Ecuador. This $111,000 project assisted 350 individuals in 70 families.
The family and community health project focused on health promotion, disease prevention and treatment. Through workshops and on-line sessions, training was provided about healthy lifestyles and disease prevention. Diagnosis, treatments, rehabilitation were provided in areas including nutrition, sex education, drug abuse prevention, HIV/AIDS, and dental care in an effort to improve overall health in the community. Many young people involved demonstrated learning disabilities that were addressed by the project.
