All of the 33 children featured below were funded with the initial Global Grant from the Rotary Foundation.
To get this $42,250 grant, $11,500 had to be raised from other private sources with their donations to UPMASA (University of the Philippines Medical Association in America) as seed money that was almost quadrupled by the Rotary Global grant.
Because of the success of this project, Rotary allowed a second grant, Operation Braveheart II.
The Total Rotary global grant for Operation Braveheart II was for $124,000
As in the first grant, seed money equivalent to $27,000 had to be raised from private donors through UPMASA.
This funded the repair of another 105 patients. All these patients are featured below.
All Rotary funds have been spent. Please join us in this effort to change the lives of children with curative repair of their hearts.
