International Support

 
 
International Committee members of the Rotary Club of West Chester, Ernie Zlotolow (left) and Bruce Beadle, along with Club President-elect,  Mickey Hall, display a check for $7,500 that the club received for the CARS (Children with Amputations Rehabilitation Strategies)  program, that aids children with amputated limbs. The check, representing funds from The Rotary Foundation, passed through to Rotary District 7450, of which the West Chester club is a member, is designated to provide prosthetic limbs to four children from Rwanda and Ethiopia, along with an ulnar transplant for one girl. Another $500 was also contributed by District 7450's Gundaker Foundation. The children, accompanied by guardians, will receive prosthetic legs at the Shriner's Hospital for Children in Philadelphia. The project is a joint effort of Rotary, The Powell Foundation, and Shriner's Hospital, which partners with GMRF (Global Medical Relief Fund).
