Soroptimist International (SI) of Loomis Basin contributed $1500 to the Seeds Of Hope International Project (SOHIP — www.sohip.org) and $750 to the For One Another Foundation (FOAF – www.foroneanother.org) to support international clean water projects.
According to Eileen Elder, the Soroptimist club is committed to helping women and girls both locally and internationally. “Our club was interested in selecting an international project that would have long-term impact,” said Elder. “After hearing presentations from several local organizations committed to helping those overseas, we decided to focus on clean water for the 2011-2012 year. Clean water makes a significant difference to mothers and their families.” Read more: SILB donates to international water filtration projects June 2012
