Buy salmon, help Honduras

Most children in Honduras will never see a wild salmon, but many will owe their good health to wild sockeye salmon.

THE COMOX ROTARY Club hopes you will buy some sockeye salmon to help them provide good drinking water for Hondurans so they they don't have to share drinking water with animals from puddles.

Most children in Honduras will never see a wild salmon, but many will owe their good health to delicious wild sockeye salmon, and you.

The Comox Rotary Club decided to sell salmon because one of the members, Stan Gaskarth, travelled to the village of Comayagua and saw first-hand children and animals sharing drinking water from puddles.

Stan is director of the club’s international committee. He, with other members of his committee, works hard to organize the Wild4Water project.

This is the third year Comox Rotarians are selling salmon in the Comox Valley. All club members are selling salmon.

Every dollar raised when you buy salmon from the Comox Rotary Club is used to provide pure water, sanitation, and education for children and their families in Honduras.

The club’s slogan, Wild4Water, says it all. Wild salmon sales pay for pure water in Honduras.

Hardy Buoys-candied and smoked, vacuum-packed and frozen by the pound, these tasty sockeye salmon strips are perfect for all holiday entertaining menus and they make excellent gifts. This year, optional delivery is for 10 dollars.

The Comox Rotary Club is working in partnership with the Rotary Club of Comayagua, Honduras. Money from last year’s salmon sales paid for the new well that was drilled in February.

Comox Rotarians plan to drill more wells with your help. Support of the Wild4Water fundraiser will allow more villages to have clean water. Rotarians provide the money for the project and the villagers provide the labor.

Hondurans are educated to care for the water and sanitation systems. This ensures the sustainability of the project.

Pure water, sanitation, and education can change a child’s life. They can save a child’s life. Water changes the local economy.
