The Rotary Club of Ankeny has agreed to be the International sponsor for a Rotary Global Grant to purchase equipment needed in the patient care rooms and necessary supplies in the protection of medical and paramedical personnel necessary in Honduras due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  In Honduras, there are immense deficiencies in equipment and supplies to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.  The supplies to be purchased include monitors, infusion pumps, masks, robes, and plastic face shields.  All 33 Rotary clubs in Honduras have joined in forming the Rotarian Emergency Committee of Honduras to clearly define the needs and scope of the project.  These clubs contributions plus District Designated Funds from Honduras will total $26,600 which will then receive a match from the Rotary International World Fund.     
In addition to being the International sponsor for this project, the Rotary Club of Ankeny will be contributing $2,000 which will receive a 50% match from the Rotary Foundation.  This donation will also be matched by District 6000 with $3,444 of District Designated Funds which will then be matched dollar for dollar by Rotary International's World Fund resulting in $9,888 in total funding for this project through our club.  Rich Job will be the Primary Contact for this project with Juan Arias participation in the International Committee.  The total funding for this project from all sources will be $56,538.
