A Big Thank You to the Rotaplast Mission Team and the Clubs and Individuals who donated and raised $65,000 to allow the District to sponsor this mission and send 8 non-medical personnel over.  Another Successful Mission occurred. There were 75 patients and 85 surgeries performed. 
One of the many stories of how the 2019 Cebu City Rotaplast Mission changed lives:
Reynald is a 14-year-old boy who came in to the hospital for a cleft lip repair. But before he came in, his mother had stopped at his school to notify them that Reynald would be absent for the duration of the repair. To her surprise, she learned that he hadn’t been showing up in school this year – other students were bullying him because of the way he looked with his cleft lip. As a result of the repair and care he receives from our Rotaplast mission, he’ll be able to go back to school. Saving Smiles, Changing Lives.
Thank you to our team and thank you for all the Clubs and Individuals who donated to make this mission possible!!!
