Letter: Rotary raised $50,000 for global COVID fight
Letter

Dear editor:

In April, the NOTL Rotary Club chose to support Doctors Without Borders in the global fight against COVID-19. We’ve stepped up and wish to say thank you, Niagara-on-the -Lake.

Thank you for sharing with those facing COVID-19 in the beleaguered refugee camps of Bangladesh and the slums of Lima, Peru, and in countries where health care systems have collapsed and communities are too poor to provide hygiene or minimal safety.

Health care heroes of Doctors Without Borders risk everything to save lives, give dignity, treasure each human right to health, to just have that chance. 

Doctors Without Borders is at work in 78 countries hardest hit by COVID-19. And you helped — the funds we raised provide care, hygiene and life-saving equipment, and you’ve got doctors into the field.

In April, NOTL Rotary Club raised more than $50,000 to help those in need. 

Thank you! 

Rotary Club of Niagara-on-the-Lake
