Greetings Dear Donor. we at the Fundacion Grupo Puntacana can’t tell you how much we appreciate your support. Your donation means the world to us !
Your contribution will make a real difference in the lives of the underserved people who could be at risk of blindness due to lack of timely ophthalmological care, specially those living at the eastern region of the Dominican Republic
We continue intensifying the fundraising aiming to finish the equipping of the clinic areas and the staffing on the second 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 government.
Likewise, we are making the customs arrangements to get the taxes exemption on the importation of the equipment.
As we all know government paperwork often do not go forward as expected due to bureaucracy and political aspects
We hope to open the center at the end of the year, as soon as it has the equipment, furniture, medical materials and staffing needed to ensure high quality ophthalmological services.
We are together in this and we hope that it will remain so , your support help make our project possible
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.
Again, thank you very much !
All the best,
