Oakland Rotary Partners With GOLI For Program in El Salvador

Keith Giron introduced Rob Raylman from Gift of Life International. Oakland #3 has partnered with Gift of Life International to develop a sustainable pediatric cardiac surgery and aftercare program in El Salvador. Oakland Rotary received a global grant of $77,200 to support our programs. The grant was composed of contributions from many sources. Our Salvadoran Rotary partners contributed $27,000, District 5170 $13,355, and Oakland Rotary $6,668. Rotary Foundation provided matching funds of $30,189.

Rob gave kudos to Keith for being the driving force behind this significant grant. The funds will be used to purchase medical equipment and fund nutritional programs. Thanks to all the other Oakland Rotary members who helped with the grant and the programs in El Salvador.  introduced Rob Raylman from Gift of Life International.
