The procedure, one of 20 performed on Ugandan children in January, was made possible by a Rotary Foundation Matching Grant through the Gift of Life India program.
Former Rotary Peace Fellow Jeanette Kroes is grateful for the generosity of donors in supporting the Foundation's work in peace and conflict resolution.
"I am particularly thankful to the Rotarians from all over the world, for the endless opportunities to see so many peacemakers in action," she says. "Truly, you Rotarians make up a United Nations of another kind."
Mariana Ponce is thankful for the loan she received through a microcredit program operated by Rotarians in Honduras, which allowed her to set up a small business out of her home near Tegucigalpa. She is now selling soy products to supplement the income she earns from washing laundry at a local hospital.
