In this composite photo you are looking in the doors of each of our three operating rooms as they work on three patients at the same time. To date we have completed over 55 surgeries on patients.
Our hosts and volunteers are amazing. Their dedication and commitment is nothing less than inspiring. In addition to our host Rotarians from Rotary Cumanatogo we have an amazing local team of volunteers from Toyota, Chevron, The Rotaract Club of District 4370, and volunteers from Cumana that heard about Rotaplast on the internet.
Tiny Elizabeth, seen here between her mother on the left, and Karen Davis NP. Elizabeth arrived with a very prominent cleft lip.
What a difference a day can make for Elizabeth.
Miriannys is sporting a handsome quilt with her mother & sister.
Quilts- every Rotaplast mission includes a hand-made quilt for each patient. Most of our quilts on this mission are hand made by quilters who volunteer their skilled time to hand craft these beautiful quilts. Wrap-A-Smile in Wells, Maine has provided most of the quilts. We also had quilts made by Shenandoah Quilters Club, and Grace Lutheran Quilters. This year we gave each child a Beanie Baby that was sponsored by generous folks back home.
Las familias- Everyday we are witness to the bond between families and their children. It is touching, it is real, and it inspires us.
I think Kevin appreciates it as well.
