Review for Gift of Life Los Angeles, Agoura Hills, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The children of San Salvador are truly blessed to have GOL Los Angeles and the amazing support of its president, Brenda Small.

Over the past few years we have had the opportunity to see the results of this wonderful organization. Our daughter has accompanied Brenda to San Salvador on various missions and has witnessed first hand what it’s like to change a child’s life. Through their fund raising efforts offering life saving surgery’s do to Congenital Heart Disease, GOL offers amazing support not only for the children, but their families in both PRE and POST OP procedures.

In the summer of 2010, we were a host family to a 12 year old boy and his mother from San Vicente, San Salvador. Through the hard work of GOL Los Angeles, Brenda Small, in partnership with Mending Kids International, my entire family experienced this organization’s dedication in seeing this young man through his surgery and his return to a HEALTHY life in San Salvador, where he hopes one day to be a soccer star. Through their entire stay, GOL Los Angeles was here to help us, inspire us, and prove to us that they truly are “A GREAT NONPROFIT.”

Brenda Small has not only been and amazing mentor to my daughter, but she has truly changed and saved the life’s of so many in San Salvador. I wish I could give GOL Los Angeles more than five stars!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Fund raising, my daughters personal experience in visiting San Salvador, having the opportunity to be a host family in 2010.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Brenda can use all the volunteers / donations she can get. If she had 48 hours in the day, she would utilize them all.
