The lead international partners on this grant are Gift of Life Cairo and Gift of Life North East Ohio. Dr. Shawky from Cairo has been connected with our program since 5 year old “Sherouk” and her mother came to Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital for open heart surgery in 2007. He has done an extraordinary job in building the program in Northern Egypt. Dr. Shawky’s all Egyptian team is reaching out to underserved regions of his home country and has begun working with us to lay the foundation for becoming an outbound surgical team to begin teaching, training and equipping future partners in Kenya.
Our district can be proud of the roll we have played in supporting this incredible program. I personally thank you all for the many years of sustain support and commend you all for having touched the lives of so many children and their extended families though our service.
