Colostomy Freedom





History Logs

Project Description

Region: Asia

Country: Philippines

Location: Cagayan de Oro City

Total Budget: $42,000

Areas of Focus: Disease prevention and treatment, Maternal and child health

In areas of the Philippines where there is no Pediatric Surgeon, children born with Imperforate Anus and Hirschsprung Disease are initially treated with a Colostomy and are referred to higher centers for definitive management by the age of two. Unfortunately, many do not return because of financial problems. The discomfort and social stigma of such colostomy thus keeps them away from school and from further gainful endeavors in the future.

The project is a Surgical Mission to provide needed surgery for identified children.

Surgery will be in 8-11 December 2023

Project funds will be to transport specialists, provide for accommodations/meals of mission team, Diagnostic work-up of patients, For medical, anesthesia and surgical supplies during the Surgical mission.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
