Proposal Form

This project will begin to address the tremendous need for pediatric cardiac care not only for the underprivileged children of Monterrey, Mexico but also the surrounding communities. A total of 3 VTT training visits will be conducted in 2019-20 at Zambrano Hellison Hospital in Monterrey. Each visit will be two weeks in length with a goal of treating 15 children per mission (7 Cath procedures and 8 surgeries). The hospital has all the necessary equipment needed to conduct pediatric cardiac surgeries and catherizations. However, they are in need of skills transfer as well as funding to procure the specialized supplies and medications to complete these life-saving procedures.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






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%.
