Greetings Dear Donor. Your support means a lot to us, we at the Fundación Grupo Puntacana can’t tell you how much we appreciate it.
Your contribution will make a great change in the lives of the underserved people who could be at risk of blindness due to lack of timely ophthalmological care, especially those who live in the vulnerable communities at the eastern region of the Dominican Republic
We are currently intensifying the fundraising aiming to finish the construction of the clinic areas on the first half of 2020, in order to start offering the outpatient consultations services in the first stage of the project.
We hope to offer surgical services in the second stage of the project, the surgical equipment needs to be placed anyway even if only the clinical area is finished.
Parallel to these actions, we are making efforts to reach a collaboration agreement with the Dominican government to put the center into operation with local human resources, of which some would be provided by the goverment.
Likewise, we are making the customs arrangements to get the taxes exemption on the importation of the equipment.
We hope to open the center in the second quarter of 2020, as soon as it has the equipment, furniture, medical materials and staffing needed to ensure high quality ophthalmological services.
We will keep you informed about the progress of the project. If you have any comment, advice or question, please feel free to direct them to us and we will answer as best we can.
We are together in this and we hope that it will remain so , your support help make our project possible
Again, thank you very much !
All the best,
