On the final scheduled day of surgery, the Rotaplast Lima medical team performed as many cleft lip and palate surgeries and procedures as they possibly could. Once again, we heard the inspirational stories of travel and sacrifice by families who brought their children to Lima to undergo life changing surgery. The Rotaplast team, lead by Mission Director Barbara Saffer, gave thanks to the administration and staff of the Hospital Nacional Arzobispo Loayza for their gracious hospitality and support during our two-week mission. Later, the Rotary Club Rimac hosted a goodbye dinner for the Rotaplast Lima team.
