History Logs

Project Description

Region: North America

Country: Mexico

Location: Guaymas

Total Budget: $32,596

Areas of Focus: Water, sanitation and hygiene, Community economic development

This is an old folks retirement home named Cobijo San Jose, located on the outskirts of Guaymas, Sonora, Mexico. This retirement home is the only on in the municipality of Guaymas, whose population is 175K. El Cobijo was first started by local Catholic priests back in 1983, with the help of the San Carlos rotary Club. Back in 2009, hurricane Jimena destroyed most of the facility, flooding the main grounds and insides of the mail building with mud. The project consists of three phases, and only the first one has been funded by other clubs and individual donations. Phase one consisted of the rehabilitation of the northeast dormitories with new beds, night tables & linens, new bathrooms, showers & sinks, refurbishment of walls, ceilings & floors, hydraulic & sanitary installations, new electrical wiring, new air conditioners, closets, common area & connecting hallway accessibility, storage room, wheelchair accessibility, kitchen appliances, bedroom heat pumps and cooling systems. What Phase two pursues is to refurbish and furnish the southeast dormitories with all of the above mentioned needs in order to provide a dignifying place for living.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
