Dear Rotarians,
Wonderful news! A news article came out yesterday in the New York Times highlighting the work of Dr. Alberto Paniz-Mondolfi:
Dr. Paniz-Mondolfi is the founder of the Venezuelan Science Incubator, an NGO dedicated to promoting science and treating infectious diseases in Venezuela, and one of the beneficiaries of the recently approved Rotary GG 2015574.

This GG, in the amount of $36,512, will help supply medical and laboratory equipment and reagents to build the first molecular diagnostics lab in Venezuela, under the leadership of Dr. Paniz-Mondolfi. The host club is the Rotary Club of Nueva Segovia (D-4380), and the international club is the Rotary e-Club of Houston (D-5890). Contributors also include the Rotary Club of Humble (D-5890), the Rotary District 7305 (in Pennsylvania), and the Rotary Club of Corsicana (D-5870).
Thank you for your dedication to helping the most vulnerable communities around the world in the battle against infectious diseases. Today, more than ever, we must continue fighting diseases that arise from the lack of adequate water, sanitation, and hygiene around the world. In Rotary, we are lighting the way one project at a time!
Dr. Isis Mejias - President, Rotary e-Club of Houston
