Proposal Form

After the initial diagnosis and treatment clinic for treatment of Craniofacial and Articulation disorders is in place this coming Spring 2016 treating minor disorders, the patients having advanced and debilitating conditions will need this advanced procedure grant to be able to obtain total joint replacement surgery, release of total jaw ankylosis and further reconstructive facial procedures such as Cranio-Orthognathic reconstructions. This grant will allow them to have access for this care via specialists educating the local clinicians in the techniques, and still be able to have sustainable care provided by the ongoing educational University of Latina efforts associated with this charitable and educational clinic.

The population located in Costa Rica afflicted with residual craniofacial and articulation disorders will be the direct beneficiaries. Future patients currently treated by the Children's Hospital who will outgrow their free benefits before obtaining final reconstructive results will also benefit. There are an estimated population in Costa Rica of over 100,000 suffering with articulation disorders affiliated with Cranio-Skeletofacial or dental disorders. The timeline will take place from December 2016 until June 2017

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






DDF contributions in grey are pending approval of the corresponding district committee.

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
