Darineyka, a 12 year old girl from Panama, arrived on July 29th in Montville. She was in need of a complicated open heart surgery and the Montville Rotary Club worked together with Gift of Life to bring her to the US, host her, and ensure that this heart surgery could take place. On August 25th finally the surgery went ahead and less than two weeks later
Darineyka was back in Panama, recovering from a major surgery and looking forward to a new and much more healthy life.
Gift of Life is a non profit organization that facilitates free medical services to children suffering from heart disease regardless of race, creed, sex or national origin and who otherwise lack access to such services. The Montville Rotary Club donated to cover expenses and hosted the girl and the child. A big thank you to all of the friends of the Montville Rotary Club who supported us along the way.
