Isla Popa II, June 27, 2011

Boquete Rotary Club


Dear Boquete Rotary Club,

I am a Peace Corps Volunteer on Popa II Island in the province of Bocas del Toro.  This letter is in regards to the rainwater catchment system that was installed in the community-with much thanks to the Rotary Club’s support.

There are around 300 people living in the community of Isla Popa, some of which have rainwater catchment systems and some without.  Many of the homes suffer from lack of clean water, and so, when I was put in touch with D. Robert Pickett and The Volunteer Revolution, I was excited to find out they could put in a catchment system.

The rainwater catchment system is used, without a doubt, every day.  Your generosity has provided many homes with clean water.  I, along with the community, are truly grateful.

Thank you so much for supporting organizations such as The Volunteer Revolution and Peace Corps.  It is amazing what we can do together.


Kate Douglass, Peace Corps Panama
