GREENWICH, Conn. – The Greenwich Rotary Club recently made a contribution of $5,000 to Heart Care International.

The nonprofit organization, which is headquartered in Greenwich, focuses on providing lifesaving heart procedures to children in developing countries.

Heart Care International founder and CEO Dr. Robert Michler, of Riverside, talked about the organization at the Rotary Club’s Feb. 25 meeting.

Sally Parris, president of the Greenwich Rotary Club, along with other members, presented Michler with a $5,000 check after his speech.

“Heart Care International is a perfect match for our charitable giving, which supports organizations in the local community and internationally,” Parris said in a press release.

"We thank Dr. Michler for introducing us to Heart Care International through his informative presentation. We are proud to be not only a fellow community member with Heart Care International but also a partner in its lifesaving mission.”

Michler is surgeon-in-chief and professor at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore Medical Center.

A member of Second Congregational Church in Greenwich, Michler founded Heart Care International 21 years ago.

“Heart Care International is honored to receive the support from the Greenwich Rotary Club, a fellow community member and like-minded nonprofit organization, dedicated to helping serve the underprivileged abroad who have heart disease and no hope for receiving care,” Michler said in a press release.

“This gift will save the lives of children and assure them of a bright future.

“Every dollar donated to Heart Care International goes directly to patient care since our board underwrites administrative expenses.”
