\District 5150 Rotarians – Dr. Angeloa Capozzii (Rotary Club of Tiburon), Peter Lagarias (Rotary Club of San Francisco), and Dr. Anne Delaney (Rotary Club of Terra Linda) – were recognized in an article about their extraordinary work as part of Rotaplast International, Inc. The Marin Independent Journal on the first page of its Saturday, January 14, 2017 edition describes how Rotaplast, long supported by Rotarians throughout District 5150, has carried out its ongoing mission by performing nearly 19,000 reconstructive surgeries in 26 countries around the world. These surgeries have helped children and families worldwide by eliminating the burden of cleft lip and/or palate, burn scarring, and other deformities.
Working with local professionals, Rotarians, and other organizations, Rotaplast sends multidisciplinary medical teams to provide free reconstructive surgery, ancillary treatment, and training for the comprehensive care of these children. Rotaplast supports education and research towards prevention of cleft lip and/or palate and aims is to help local professionals build sustainable models to care of these children, improve their lives and those of their families.
No wonder that so many Rotary clubs support Rotaplast!
