Rotary District 7230 Gift of Life, Inc. recently celebrated the successful surgery on the 10,000th Gift of Life child, Jonathan Olunga.

The very first Gift of Life child, Grace Agwaru, who was operated on more than 30 years ago, is now an advocate for the Gift of Life program. She was instrumental in bringing Jonathan to the U.S. for his surgery. Ms. Agwaru visited our Club in the Fall of 2008.

The Bronx Rotary Club is very proud to have now sponsored 10 children for Gift of Life surgery.

See photos of the ninth GOL child below. Her name is Skerlyn Mateo Soto from the Dominican Republic. This is the first time the Bronx Rotary Club has split sponsorship duties with another Club. That Club is the Eastchester Rotary Club. As can be seen in the photos, Skerlyn did not fail to charm all who saw her.
