11/12: Rotaplast Trip to Guatemala City Talk at Lincoln Home

Event has passed

Susan Tigert recently traveled to Guatemala City as a photo journalist and trip historian for Rotaplast International, Inc. A non-profit organization, Rotaplast is funded by Rotarians and orther organizations, and has been helping children and families in developing countries world wide for 27 years. The organization sends multidisciplinary medical and non-medical teams to  provide free reconstructive surgery, ancillary treatment, and training for the comprehensive care of children with cleft lip and/or palate, burn scarring, and other deformities. 
Susan will share her experience at The Lincoln Home on Tuesday, November 12th at 2PM. The team of volunteers she traveled with in September helped 114 children in the two weeks they were in Guatemala City. This was Susan’s first time as a Rotaplast volunteer and as a photo journalist  and was an incredible journey and learning experience that she is excited to share. The  daily blog she wrote for Rotaplast can be read at https://rotaplast.org/all/missions/2019-guatemala-city/
