Thanks to Wrap-a-Smile, each Rotaplast patient here in Aracaju has been rolled off to surgery under gorgeous, colorful handmade quilts. The operating suites are nicely air-conditioned for the comfort of the medical team and the quilts keep the patients snugly warm throughout the procedure. Everyone enjoys how much they brighten the room. The quilts stay with the patients in recovery and on to their homes. They bring a generous dose of love to the experience. The quilts here have labels identifying them from Rotary Clubs around the United States and Canada.
