Our club is sponsored by Rotary Club of Paramaribo Residence. This makes them true "partners in service" and key members of the Rotary Family. We were chartered on November 4th, 2010 in Paramaribo Suriname. We meet every first and third Saturday of the month at Diakonnesenhuis Meeting room, Zinniastraat #64 from 6.00 pm - 7.30 pm.
