Year of Gifting Week 18
Aleta is on vacation this week and has asked me to submit Week 18
With Peace, Love and a Smile;
Imagine Peace Foundation Web Mistress
I learned about Project
C.U.R.E from a friend who was
volunteering at the Denver location. She
spoke about the needs assessment that is done on site by a Project C.U.R.E team member.
They observed sutures removed post surgery. The Project C.U.R.E team member asked why the doctor did not just
cut the sutures and remove the short pieces.
The response. . . "Because we re-use them."
PROJECT C.U.R.E.'s mission is to identify,
solicit, collect, sort and deliver medical supplies and services according to
the imperative needs of the world.
PROJECT C.U.R.E. (Commission on Urgent Relief & Equipment) was founded
in 1987 to help meet the need for medical supplies, equipment and services
around the world. PROJECT C.U.R.E. builds sustainable healthcare
infrastructure by providing the medical supplies and equipment that
medical personnel need to deliver healthcare to their communities. Since its
inception, PROJECT C.U.R.E. has delivered medical relief to needy people in
more than 120 countries.
Thank you for your generous
