Renowned New York plastic surgeon Dr. Donald Roland is honored to be chosen as recipient of the Brooklyn Bridge Rotary Club’s Humanitarian Award in recognition of his work with the children of Haiti.
The Brooklyn Bridge Rotary Club is Brooklyn’s newest Rotary Club. This year will mark the first annual Brooklyn Bridge Rotary Club Awards Banquet, to be held on May 23 at the Dyker Beach Golf Course. During the event, several distinguished honorees will receive awards including the Lifetime Achievement Award, Paul Harris Award, Humanitarian Award, and Leadership Award.
Dr. Donald Roland has been chosen as recipient of the Humanitarian Award in recognition of his work with Vanity 4 Humanity, a not-for-profit organized by Dr. Roland and his wife Fatima. Vanity 4 Humanity is dedicated to providing reconstructive surgery services for the underserved people of the Dominican Republic, Fatima’s native country. Vanity 4 Humanity made their maiden surgical mission to the Dominican Republic in 2009, which was followed by work in 2010 addressing the catastrophic earthquake and aftermath that struck neighboring Haiti. During that time, Dr. Roland spent time in a small field hospital working desperately to save limbs from amputation. At the same time, Vanity 4 Humanity organized to have New York plastic surgeons transported to Haiti in 4- and 5-day shifts where they worked to save hundreds of patients from infection and amputations.
Vanity 4 Humanity has continued with twice annual surgical missions to both Haiti and the Dominican Republic, providing burn surgery, breast reconstruction, scar revision surgery and other general plastic reconstruction services. Vanity 4 Humanity also works closely with two orphanages located in the north of Haiti.
