This article is a post from Jess Socrates.  He is providing an update to Operation Braveheart in the Philippines.  8 more children have been helped.
A few days before the end of year 2019, when our total number of patients repaired for Braveheart II was at 98, Dr. Jonas expressed to me that he wanted to round off this number to 100 before the start of the year 2020. A few days ago, he reported to me that he did two more patients before the end of the year, thus meeting his personal goal.
Thanks to everyone's support, these 100 patients plus the 41 previously repaired, brings our grand total to 141 patients repaired.
In a few days, one of my fellow Rotarians, a career diplomat, will visit the Philippines. Jonas has scheduled another patient that he will repair on the day of this visit. This is not an inspection; it is a friendly visit from a Rotarian representing my Club, who is interested in the project.
The attached collage includes the grateful faces of patients #89 to 96 from December 2019.
Sincerely yours,
Jess Socrates, Coordinator, Operation Braveheart
