On February 16th our club joined the Riverdale Rotary Club and many others at Silhouette Restaurant in the Bronx to raise funds and awareness for Gift of Life International.


Another great night of Rotary in Area 5! The Rotary Club of Riverdale organized a fabulous program focusing on Gift of Life International. Rob Raylman (CEO), Robbie Donno (Founder/Director), Lina Shehayeb.(Founder Gift of Life International Lebanon), and Dr. Issam El-Rassi (Director of Pediatric Cardiac Surgery at the American University of Beirut Medical Center) spoke about their important, life-saving work caring for children with heart disease.

Gift of Life is a Rotarian-based organization that over the past 4 decades has helped more than 18,000 children from emerging countries receive treatment for their heart disease.  These children have come from 71 different countries and otherwise would not have been treated.  View a list of all countries served by GOLI.

There are over 70 Gift of Life programs throughout the world.  The majority of these programs are based in Rotary Clubs or Rotary Districts on 5 continents.
