Angel on his way to OR with Dr Forbes

Our time here is almost over, and everyone is both sad and happy. We are sad that in one short hour we will have to say goodbye to the children, their families, and our host Rotarians. We are happy because 120 children received 156 procedures. These surgeries will change the lives of these individuals and their families.

Seven days of surgery tend to run together until something triggers a memory. Each one of us will carry those memories for a very long time. The patients will enter a new phase of their lives with a new smile . 

How  many of us can say, “Today I made a difference.” Rotaplast gives us that power, as part of the team whose parts are far greater than as individuals.
