Effingham Noon Rotary Club members celebrated work at their November 21 meeting accomplished to help others in Guatemala.

The work takes place in a town called Quetzaltenango, at a facility called Casa Del Nino or, in English, Home of the Child. 

Casa Del Nino functions as a school and day care center, but also as a provider of health care.  The facility also has a farm to help cover costs. 

Noon Rotarian Ted Keller has worked in Guatemala for many years, and Noon Rotary has helped support his efforts.  Noon Rotarian Monte Bartels has partnered in the work in recent years in addition to his own efforts in Costa Rica.

At the conclusion of the presentation, Bartels presented Keller with a check from Rotary to help assist with continued maintenance and expansion of the Guatemalan project.
