We have been offered the opportunity for our clubs to partner with our great partner United By Friendship to provide a medical grade thermometer for each village in a Northern Guatemala so they can attempt to identify potential infected COVID victims and isolate them to avoid spread.
Corpus Christi Rotary Club has committed $6000 which would Fund about 100 villages . This would work well as a District Grant $3000/$3000. Timing would be important - with a Covid District Grants it is possible to advance funds prior to obtaining the grant and the reimburse out of the grant funds (which normally you cannot do).
I need to find out whether a Club would be interested. First come first served - more than club could partner up.

United by Friendship could handle the funds and obtain receipts from the health authorities - as they did on the recent Corpus Christi Rotary medical  motorcycle transportation project. There are more than 100 villages so UBF will pick up the remainder. These type of small quality international  projects with a reliable partner aren’t easy to come by. We were lucky to come with a few each year.
