Healing Little Hearts in Cebu, 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 Cebu to provide reliable and sustainable care to children of the region surrounding Cebu. Over the past four years, nearly 200 Filipino children from this region have been treated for their heart ailments. 

Accomplishments to Date:

195 Children Treated
$590K Invested
6 Missions Conducted

Focus in 2021:

The global pandemic had a great impact on the efforts of the Rotary Club of Cebu to provide care to Cebuan children with heart disease. Knowing the dire need, they formed a partnership with the Makati West Rotarians to create a new pathway for these children to be treated in Manila. We will continue to support this partnership and their efforts to light the world with hope for Filipino children in need.
