WASHINGTON ROTARY REACHES TO CHINA
The Rotary Club of Washington has approved an international project to support the China Little Flower Orphanage in Northern China in the Beijing Region.
The Club became aware of the needs through the efforts of Rotarian John Tecklenburg. Prior to moving to the Washington Area, John and his family spent five years in China as a part of John’s work for the Alcoa Corporation in China.
Seeing the need for humanitarian efforts with the people of China, John became aware of the orphanage and volunteered. Upon his return home the effort and support for the orphanage continued with trips back to China to work with the staff and children located there. China Little Flower registered in Nebraska in 1998 as a non-profit organization to provide much needed care for abandoned and orphaned children in China. Its work today is in the Beijing Region where the need for services is great.
