Fox Valley rotary clubs helping provide food to poor in Peru

OSHKOSH, WI (WTAQ) - Rotary clubs in the Fox Valley are helping fellow Rotarians in Peru provide food to the poor in that South American country.

Two Oshkosh clubs and one in Fond du Lac have resolved cultural differences to work with a Rotary Club in Lima Peru to make over 660 gallons of soy milk each day. The milk byproduct is used to make high protein bread, and both those items go to help the poor.

Bill Thimke of the Oshkosh Southwest Rotary Club said there was a lot of trial and error involved in making something like this happen.

Rotarians tell the Fond du Lac Reporter that they've overcome setbacks by hearing what the local residents in Peru want, and staying involved to meet their desires. Thimke says he's seen the faces of Peruvian youngsters when they get their milk. He said, "You can't get that kind of satisfaction anywhere else."
