Ecuador Medical Mission 2009 

In November 2009, Elizabethtown Rotarians Ralph Detrick, David Ritter, Ken Wolfe, and Joseph Rebman, along with Ken's daughter Andria Wolfe and Joe's daughter Katya Rebman, traveled to Guayaquil Ecuador for a Rotary sponsored Eye, Dental, and Medical mission.

This was written by Hector Hurtado of the Guayaquil South Rotary Club.

“To be a Rotarian is a good thing. You have the opportunity to know very kind people and beyond, you have the chance to improve yourself as a person, helping others to have a better life.

"Last weekend, I feel excited looking at a Rotarian army arriving to “Hospital Universitario”. It was an army with weapons, but not for war, army for peace and for humanity.

"John Kenny, RI President, has challenged us to take the future of Rotary in our hands. We have assumed it and we will comply with it, because we are committed with service above self.

"Henry Wadsworth Longfellow once says: “Give what you have. To someone, it may be better than you dare to think”. Medical mission Rotarians, welcome to Guayaquil, you honor our home and our land.”
