“Little acts of kindness and generosity make a huge difference in an individuals life, but join up all that kindness and generosity and you can change the lives of whole communities, whole nations and even a whole continent. This Global Grant of 1.125 million dollars will do that! It will change the health outcomes in every country the Global Mercy visits and the legacy will be seen for generations to come. From Inspiration, to Connecting the World, and now Rotary Opens Opportunities to bring surgical care, education and training to West Africa. Thank you to the Grants Team of District 1260 and all who made contributions, and the Mercy Ships team – our partners in making a difference.”
