Plymouth Rotarians join the fight on Malaria Every 30 seconds a child under the age of five dies of malaria in Africa—that’s more than 3,000 every day, more than 1,000,000 every year.-UNICEF.
Plymouth, MN, December 28, 2009:  Every 30 seconds a child under the age of five dies of malaria in Africa—that’s more than 3,000 every day, more than 1,000,000 every year.-UNICEF
This astounding statistic has gotten the attention of the Rotary Club of Plymouth which started a World Community Service Project called Friends of Senegal.
Senegal, located on the Northwestern coast of Africa is a country the size of South Dakota that has an approximate population of 12,000,000 residents with 50% unemployment.
In 2009, the Rotary Club of Plymouth, in collaboration with thirteen other Rotary Clubs in Minnesota formed a partnership with the Dakar Soleil Rotary Club. The following clubs pooled their financial resource, requested and received a $48,000 matching humanitarian grant through Rotary international; Dakar Soleil, Fairmont, Edina, Minnetonka, Redwood Falls, Wayzata, St. Michaels, Buffalo, St. Cloud Granite, St. Louis Park Sunrise, Hopkins, Maple Grove, and Fridley-Columbia Heights. This entire project will encompass the entire township of Diokoul Kher in Rufisque, Senegal, West Africa.
