The First Lady of Belize, Ms. Kim Simplis was the Guest of Honour at Project C.U.R.E.'s 3rd Annual First Ladies' Luncheon held in Phoenix Arizona on Friday November 14, 2008 where she secured a donation of medical equipment and supplies valued at BZ$2 million.

Project C.U.R.E. has been donating medical equipment and supplies around the world for the past ten years. It's mission is to identify, solicit, collect, sort and deliver medical supplies and services according to the needs of the world and is currently the world's largest distributor of donated medical supplies and equipment to developing nations.

In order to assist Belize after the major flooding experienced this year their goal was to raise enough funds to deliver the equipment and supplies to hospitals and clinics in Belize.

First Lady Simplis was accompanied by Chief Executive Officer in the Ministry of Health, Dr. Peter Allen and Consul General for Belize in Los Angeles, Mr. Roland Yorke. Present at the Luncheon honouring Belize's First Lady were over 1,000 business leaders and influential persons from the state of Arizona. The team utilized the opportunity to meet with many of these leaders and presented investment, tourism and bilateral opportunities in Belize.

Following the First Ladies Luncheon, Project C.U.R.E has arranging for shipment of several containers of medical equipment and supplies to be sent to Belize.

Project CU.R.E's Annual First Ladies' Luncheon honours the First Lady of a different country each year.

There is one comment, and though somewhat sharper than what I had in mind, it does beg questions.
