Gift of Life
Rotary District 7505 Gift of Life Foundation is dedicated to providing free, life-saving cardiac surgery to children in developing countries suffering from congenital heart defects; regardless of age, race, gender, creed or national origin, who, without our help, would certainly die.
Our club makes an annual contribution to Gift of Life in support of their mission to help children around the world.
Several members of our club have served on the Board of Directors in various capacities, as well as being a host family.
Michael and Jackie Wright – hosting child and family members 5 times
Michael Beyers – Patient Co-ordinator
