In March 2016, World of Children Founders Harry and Kay Leibowitz and World of Children supporters are visiting three World of Children Honorees to observe their work first-hand and see how your donations have made a difference in the lives of children. World of Children Celebrity Ambassador Stephanie March joined them for the first two legs of their journey.
Over the last few days, we’ve shared the work of Dr. Jorge Rojas, a doctor in Chile who has dedicated his life to providing state-of-the-art care for children with burn injuries in South America. In 2006, we honored Dr. Rojas with our World of Children Health Award. This year, we’re thrilled that some of us got to visit Dr. Rojas in person, meet the children he’s helping, and share his amazing work with many more people.
We’re excited to share pictures from our visit and introduce you to some of the amazing children we had the privilege to meet in Chile earlier this week!**
We are extremely grateful to Dr. Rojas and COANIQUEM for hosting our visit and to the parents and children who allowed us to learn more about their experiences.
