Rotarians from Latvia visited Rotarians in Chile



Members of  Riga Ridzene  Rotary Club and Ogre Rotary club visited  Pudahuel  Rotary club (Santiago- Chile)  November  25 to December  8, 2016. The visit was organized in the framework of  “Club to club” exchange following the invitation of  Rotarians from Chile.
Latvia Rotarians visited several cities – Santiago, Talca,  Valparaiso, Los Andes, Pomaire  and  participated in four Rotary club meetings. The group was introduced to Pudahuel Children’s Burn center, established  and maintained by Rotarians, met Talca University students,  Parliament Building,  Valparaiso,  glassworks (Padre Hurtado)  and a number of vineyards.
Guests from Latvia  stayed with   families from   Santiago.
The visit  was really great. It was  blessed to get to know Rotarians living the other side of the world and to realize how alike we are. It was great to meet open minded,  friendly people  and to get once more the  evidence that Rotarians are welcomed everywhere.
Riga Ridzene Rotary club is thankful to  Latvia Honorary Consul in Chile  Ilze Kozjukeviča who was very helpful organizing the exchange visit.

With great pleasure Latvia Rotarians  will meet the  guests  from Chile in 2017.
