BE THE INSPIRATION by hosting Rotary Days in YOUR community!

2nd Gift of Life Child Arrives in Indy

We have a second  Gift of Life (GOL) patient for this Rotary year! Salima and her mother Soueba, plus an escort from Togo (Anna), arrived from Togo (Africa) May 3 and settled in to the Ronald McDonald House.

The surgery went well. She is recovering quickly and was released from the hospital last Saturday. Salima, and our earlier patient Johanna, are well loved and cared […]
