Rotary Club to provide assistance to typhoon victims

THE Rotary Club of Saipan will provide assistance to households affected by Typhoon Yutu, but “we don’t want to duplicate what they have already received from other groups,” club president Greg Borja said.

During a recent meeting, the club members discussed how they could help rebuild the typhoon-ravaged Saipan.

They mentioned the possibility of getting relief assistance from Rotary District 2750 which includes the northern Pacific basin.

Each club member also reported their observation on the damage sustained by homes in their respective villages.

Borja said Rotary Clubs in the states want to know how they can assist the typhoon victims here.

He encouraged club members to find out the specific needs of their neighbors, friends and community members.

The local Rotarians also agreed to distribute school supplies to students.

Borja said although they are a “small club, we have a big heart” committed to help the community.
