The project, carried out by the Muyenga club and the Rotary Club of Genk-Noord, Belgium, is made possible by a Health, Hunger and Humanity Grant from The Rotary Foundation. It aims to fight malaria, improve general health, promote economic development, assist farmers, help orphans and the poor, and fight illiteracy. (Photo by Rotary International.)
