Healing Little Hearts in the Dominican Republic.
Country of Focus.
In 2020 we began a new partnership with CEDIMAT Hospital in Santo Domingo, continuing our efforts to develop a reliable treatment option for Dominican children with heart disease. We have now successfully conducted five training visits to CEDIMAT since the beginning of the global pandemic. During these five visits, 85 children have been treated. We look forward to healing more Dominican hearts in November 2021 and in early 2022. Our previous partnership with Hospital Infantil Dr. Robert Reid Cabral provided hope to more than 160 children in need. We are grateful for the dedication and support of Gift of Life Rotary District 7980, the Rotary Club of Santo Domingo, The Rotary Foundation and the many partners which have helped to fund the Rotary Global Grants to support this program.
