Here is what is happening in our club
Responding to a critical need of people in war-torn Ukraine, the Lander Rotary Club has launched a project to convert used solar panels into cell phone chargers for shipment to schools, hospitals, and individuals in Ukraine.  The first converted panels will be shipped to Ukraine in the next few weeks.
“Without a reliable power grid and electricity, teachers and school kids, hospital workers, and other citizens often have no way to charge their cell phones to help them stay safe in the war,” said Ken Schreuder, a retired engineer and Rotarian who is leading the Rotary club’s project.  “These solar panels have reached the end of their useful commercial lives here, but by adding a simple converter we can turn them into cell phone chargers that can charge 2-4 cell phones in a couple of hours.”
With charged cell phones, Ukrainians can receive important news and alerts, such as evacuation orders and air raid warnings.
The panels are also a source of encouragement for the Ukrainian people. Encouraging messages are written on the backs of the panels to let the people of Ukraine know that the American people support them.  “This is one way we can let them know that America has not forgotten them,” Schreuder said.
The cost of attaching a voltage converter to a panel and shipping the panel to Ukraine is about $150. 
(Pictured: Ukrainian schoolchildren hold a converted solar panel that they received recently from a group in Colorado.)
Here's your chance to donate money to support the Lander Rotary Club’s International Service projects in Rwanda (training nurses in remote areas to diagnose and treat strep throat to prevent rheumatic heart disease) and Ukraine (converting solar panels into cell phone chargers for Ukrainians impacted by the Russian invasion). You can contribute $25 to $300 via this Square link:  Various Rotary Foundation grants will be sought for these projects and other clubs and districts will be asked for support, but the projects also must have individual Rotarians supporting them if they are to succeed.  Please consider contributing today!
