Rotaryla5 & Rotary

The Rotary Water Management Systems Project is a mission of Rotary to build clean water systems for orphanages, orphan-caring Buddhist monasteries, and villages in the Myanmar Delta Region devastated by Cyclone Nargis. This is a multi-district, multi-national project, with LA5 as the lead club.

This project began in 2005, when a then 30-year Rotarian from Anaheim Hills was leading a Rotary video documentary team in Southeast Asia following the 2004 Tsunami. In Myanmar, JT Warring spotted an opportunity to address a major public health priority in Myanmar. He asked himself, “What could be more rewarding than helping children in need, especially in a 3rd world country like Myanmar.?”
