The need was such that Gift of Life International felt that a return mission to the Phillippines was necessary to provide additional training to the staff of the Phillipines Childrens Medical Center. During the Summer, a team was put together from the staff of the Miller Children's Hospital in Long Beach, California. Kathy Hiltner of Rotary District 7500 Gift of Life Foundation took on the responsibility of putting together our first Global Grant Application, with the cooperation of the Toms River Morning Rotary Club, to raise $64,000 to help finance the return trip to the Phillippines. During the week of September 29 - October 5, 2013 the team successfully completed surgeries on 10 more Filipino children and provided additional training to the medical staff of the Phillippine Children's Medical Center.
The result of their hard work resulted in a gift of life to these ten Filipino children.
