Eyeglasses for El Salvador provided by one Del Mar Solana Beach Rotarian to another

The Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary Club (DMSB Rotary) recently took one more step in helping to assist and educate the poorest of the poor, especially children and women, of El Salvador. Earlier this month, Jan Parsons, past president of DMSB Rotary, delivered two satchels containing over 100 eyeglasses to Ildiko Tesak of El Salvador, founder of the non-profit Organizacion y Educacion Empresarial Feminina de El Salvador (OEF).

The Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary Club (DMSB Rotary) recently took one more step in helping to assist and educate the poorest of the poor, especially children and women, of El Salvador.  Earlier this month, Jan Parsons, past president of DMSB Rotary, delivered two satchels containing over 100 eyeglasses to Ildiko Tesak of El Salvador, founder of the non-profit Organizacion y Educacion Empresarial Feminina de El Salvador (OEF).

Ildiko, Hungarian-born and attorney-educated, is also a member of the San Salvador Northwest Rotary Club and an honorary member of DMSB Rotary.  The eyeglasses will be distributed to those in need through both OEF and Ildiko’s Rotary Club in El Salvador.

In six years of working with Ildiko, OEF, and San Salvador Northwest Rotary, DMSB Rotary has funded a pre-school and computers for it, job-related adult education classes, classes on farming (and cooking) of more nourishing food crops, medical clinic equipment, and many other health and education projects.  To personally inspect projects it has funded or may fund, DMSB Rotarians have visited El Salvador twice thus far and are planning a third inspection trip in early 2014.

The Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary Club’s primary purpose is to provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through its men and women members from the business, professional, and community-leader communities.  To learn more about Rotary and the Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary Club, call Richard Fogg at (858) 693-7556 or see www.DMSBRotary.com.  Information about OEF can be found at www.oefes.org.
