Lisa McCoy is a Rotarian from Gravenhurst, Ontario. She worked 23 years in
the Public Library field.
After having extensively traveled around the world, she decided to give worth
and meaning to her travels by volunteering her efforts in aid of those less
fortunate than herself; particularly the children and landmine survivors of
Cambodia and the refugees of Burma.
Lisa participated in disaster relief efforts in the aftermaths of the 2004
Boxing Day Tsunami, Cyclone Nargis on the Thai-Burma border and Typhoon Ketsana
in Cambodia. She is the executive director of the Canadian non-profit
organization 'A Mine Free World Foundation'.
In 2009, she spent 6 months in Cambodia where she attended the grand opening of
The 'Muskoka School'; a 6-room rural school funded by the citizens and Rotary
Clubs of Muskoka. She is the Field Coordinator for Rotary Wheels for Learning -
an international program of the Rotary Club of Gravenhurst, Ontario, Canada,
District 7010. In the past 2 years, close to 2,000 bicycles have been
distributed to needy students in Cambodia.
