Two decades of service beyond borders
When Rajendra Saboo finished his term as president of Rotary International in 1992, he started thinking about how he could continue to help people. By 1998, after serving as Rotary Foundation trustee chair, he knew he wanted to do something hands-on. He and a fellow Rotarian who is a pathologist and past district governor organized the first of many medical missions to perform corrective surgery on patients with polio in Uganda. In the 20 years since that first trip, they've sent hundreds of volunteers around the world to perform 67,000 surgeries and examine 250,000 patients.
