Walter Hughes Jr
Rotary's work to provide clean water

Walter championed Rotary projects over the past thirteen years to locate wells in
communities with the highest incidence of Guinea worm disease in Ghana and South
Sudan. The World Health Organization certified Ghana as free of Guinea worm
disease in 2014. He traveled to South Sudan during the civil war in November 2015
to inspect Rotary’s clean water project. Rotary is close to eradicating both Guinea
worm disease and polio.
