Service club sees beauty, poverty of island nation
A group of local teenagers shared stories, observations and images from a trip promoting “service above self” at the Tunica Rotary Club on Thursday, Sept. 19.
The Tunica Academy Interact Club traveled to the Dominican Republic in the summer of 2013 to provide water filters for citizens and help with the construction of a local hospital.
Rotary Club liaison Wes Ryals, who also traveled with the group, previously reported that they found “a desperate living situation” in the country.
Club sponsor Abbey Turner echoed Ryals’ remarks, saying that local water could not be consumed.
“We played cards at night and joked that the loser would have to brush their teeth with the water,” Turner said.
