Dr. Carlos Hoyos, a plastic surgeon from Pereira working with the team is interviewed at the opening clinic.

It's a big event when Rotaplast comes into a town, especially when a team returns for the sixth time, as in Pereira, Colombia. Local and regional newspaper and television reporters are here daily checking on the progress of the  mission and getting new angles on local stories.

Dr. Al Goldberg, pediatrician, takes a break to read one of several articles published about the mission.

The local organizing Rotarians of District 4280 also use newspaper stories to publicize the arrival of the Rotaplast team to help assure that all children who could benefit from our mission are aware of the location and dates.


Mission Director Orlando Arce is interviewed for television news.

The same reporter is back for more stories with Dr. CK Park, anesthesiologist.
