PDG Robert (Bob) Newlon (Oregon Rotary Club) and IPDG Jim Nelson (Rockford Club) just returned from Costa Rica where they assisted local rotarians and community members to install UDDT (urine diversion degradable toilet).  The Rockford Rotary club, as well as several other clubs in District 6420, contributed to the cost of the supplies.  Bob and Jim paid their travel expenses and/or were hosted by fellow Rotarians and community members during the project.  These toilets were installed where there are no facilities or where old facilities have been abandoned. The toilets will divert human waste away from water supplies, supply fertilizer for gardens and crops and, most importantly, provide women and girls needed safety and privacy at night.
