For more than 30 years, Rotary Clubs and Districts have supported the Gift of Life International program. During this time, the equivalent of $500 million has been raised or provided in services that were performed at a significantly reduced rate by hospitals and health care professionals. The result of this effort on the part of Rotarians around the world is that the lives of more than 10,000 children have been saved through Gift of Life.
District 7770 is a long-time supporter of Gift of Life, a program that accepts at risk children from third world countries and provides life-saving surgeries with Rotary funds. Through partnerships with hospitals around our District, we are able to bring children to the United States, give them life-saving heart and lung surgeries, house them with Rotary families and send them home well. Since the start of our involvement, we have saved the lives of more than 100 children from around the world.
