"Helping to provide clean water for children in Nigeria"
Luke Pyytic, Temecula Valley New Generations Rotary President-Elect International
The most recent project that I have been working on is a water well and storage tank at a primary school in Onitsha, Nigeria. The school currently hosts over 500 children on a daily basis. Before now the only source of water was from a unreliable water truck delivering unfiltered water from the River Niger. My Rotary Club and I performed fundraisers, as well as campaigning through other Clubs in our district to raise over $10,000 to perform the project. This well will not only provide clean water to the children, but to the surrounding community.
Luke Pytlik is a member of the Temecula Valley New Generations Rotary Club. He currently serves as the President Elect as well as the International Director. He is a Paul Harris Fellow, and is to be the President of his club in the 2015-2016 Rotary year.

In this show you’ll learn:
The importance of hydration.
How to take in the proper quantity of water.
How the quality of water is as important as the quantity.
Dehydration can manifest in a myriad of diseases and symptoms. Most of us are dehydrated and we don’t even realize it. Dehydration triggers mechanisms by which such things as asthma, allergies, heartburn, fatigue, hypertension and many others illnesses occur. Water is vital to your survival. Without sufficient water intake, your entire body slows down, and healing and repair become sluggish.
Join Dr. Ritamarie as she discusses hydration. It is such an important topic for health, that Dr. Ritamarie devotes an entire module to it in her Energy Recharge Inner Circle.
To discover how your health and life can be forever changed, become part of Dr. Ritamarie’s inner circle, and get personally guided by Dr. Ritamarie and one of her personally trained functional nutrition coaches. They’ll look at your labs, your habits, and your health history, and work with you to create and implement your very own personalized road map to vibrant health and recharged energy. This is a small intimate group. Watch the video and see the success stories HERE.
