RCBND Global Grant No. 1864795 – Approved!

We did it (AGAIN)!

Global Grant #1864795 has been approved by The Rotary Foundation (TRF). The total amount of the Global Grant is USD130,906.00. This will allow RC Bali Nusa Dua to perform approximately 200 hare-lip and cleft palate operations over the next 24 months (May 2017-May 2019).

This Global Grant not only continues RCBND’s two decades of life changing surgeries but expands our efforts to provide per surgery dental care for children six years old and above. We know of no other Cleft Lip and Palate program in Indonesia providing this care.

Special commendation and recognition goes to PP Karl-Heinz Schmelzer for spearheading the application process. As well a Big Hand goes to Past President of RC Bali Nusa Dua Dave Lance who now resides in Pittsburgh, PA USA for his continued care and concern for the children of Indonesia. Dave’s current club, RC Carnegie-Collier and District 7300 whose contributions totaled over USD40,000.00 (before matching funds from TRF).

As well German clubs Köln-Kapitol, Mülheim-Ruhr-Unlenhorst and Kaufbeuren-Ostallgaü joined with us again to participate in this Global Grant.

In short, a lot of Rotarians from around the world pulling together and achieving a great result.

Well done one and all!
