ROTAPLAST

Did you know that Rotary conducts over a dozen life changing missions to help a couple of hundred children per mission born with life disfigurements of cleft palate and cleft lip? Medical and non-medical volunteers visit third world countries for 2 weeks and "make smiles". Each mission performs a couple hundred life altering surgeries 24x7 giving those kids their vanity or the ability to speak and lead a normal life for the first time. We get numerous inquires from people wanting to come to Rotary to be part of these wonderful teams. It's an experience no one could ever forget. There is a mission in Sept to Periera, Columbia from our district. Come out and learn more.
