Last week, the San Pedro Polyclinic II received a substantial and much needed donation from Project CURE. Project CURE is a non-profit, humanitarian relief organization that collects medical surplus and donates it to developing countries. Director of the organization, Dr. Anne Marie Jackson handed over a total of 1.2 million dollars worth of equipment, materials and fixtures to Dr. Giovanni Solorzano of the Polyclinic II. The donation included some much needed equipment, including: office supplies, a full set laboratory, orthopedic supplies, x-ray beds/developer, examination tables, chairs, an incubator and much more that will fully equip the clinic. An ecstatic Dr. Solorzano stated, “The donation is much obliged because we were in dire need of this equipment. Now the only problem is we need to get more personnel and space so that way all the equipment will be put to good use.”
Since the beginning of the Poly Clinic II project, the organization Project CURE set its sights on the clinic and had promised to supply the facility with equipment and medical supplies. The organization makes a difference, as their substantial, ongoing donations of medical supplies and equipment change the infrastructure of healthcare systems. Project CURE helps those who have no other advocate; from founder, James Jackson, to each member of the CURE Corps of volunteers, they have become the Ambassadors of Hope.
The San Pedro community will now benefit immensely from this substantial donation and wish to thank Project CURE Belize for making it possible.
