Invitation: GOL Trip to Shijiazhuang
Our Gift Of Life project partner Hebei Children’s Hospital in Shijiazhuang will host their 7th Children’s Health Festival on Saturday, May 27th. Some of the children who were supported by our club’s GOL surgery fund and outreach program will be present. The director of the hospital would like to invite our members to attend this event with a view of launching our new initiative, GOL-Hypo. This is an excellent PR event to promote Rotary and RCB and an opportunity for our members to meet the children, visit the project site and observe good deeds in action. To sign up please contact Celine by email or wechat.
