"Thank you Rotary Club of New York from Hamburg for your donation to Gift of Life International's Global Grant for Egypt!"

GOLI held a reception at the Rotary International Convention in Hamburg for all the affiliated GOL programs representing 25 countries from which children with congenital heart disease are taken care of. The Egyptian surgeon, Dr. Hesham Shawky, expressed his gratitude to the RCNY for our help for the 60 children in Egypt who will be served by the grant this year. President Barry Rassin honored us by coming to the reception and spoke of his respect and admiration of GOLI's work. He saw it first hand in Haiti 10 years ago with Rob Raylman and has supported the work of GOLI since then. Gift of Life International (GOLI) is one of the largest programs affiliated with Rotary International and the largest pediatric cardiac surgery program developing sustainable, pediatric cardiac surgery programs with and in emerging countries throughout the world.
