Healing Little Hearts in the Manila, The Philippines
Country of Focus
Gift of Life International receives more requests for help from parents of children with heart disease in the Philippines than any other country around the world. In our effort to respond to the tremendous need, we have partnered with the Rotary Club of Makati West Gift of Life Program to coordinate surgeries and caths to be performed at local hospitals within Manila. In the Rotary year 2017-18, 251 Filipino children were treated through the Makati West program. The 251 children were the most children ever treated in any Gift of Life Program for that period of time.
