Dear donor, please receive a warm greeting. We truly appreciate your contribution.!

We are able to serve quality health care services to thousands of children living in the underserved communities of the Punta Cana region because of supporters like you. We are grateful that so many generous souls are supporting our cause. Thank you for helping us save precious lives.

The project is located in the community of Verón and accessible to all vulnerable communities of the Punta Can region. This health center, inaugurated in 2017, provides quality primary care to more than 15,000 children (0-15 years old) belonging to low income families .

This and all the reports to follow will update you on our progress and how your donation is been invested in this social initiative.

Currently 100% of the medical services are available. The patient service hours are from 8:00am to 4:00 pm, from Monday to Friday. Emergency is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week, including weekends and holidays.

Nowadays the clinic continues offering health prevention programs, outpatient consultations, ambulance, dental care, vaccination, x ray services, emergency, laboratory, nutrition program (together with UNICEF and “Sanar una Nación”), pharmacy, ultrasound, staff training program.

In the last 4 months the center served 9, 469 patients

The areas with the highest flow of patients are emergency, pediatric consultations, laboratory and vaccination.

The most common medical cases in the last months: Respiratory infections, febrile syndrome, skin infections, injuries from external causes and gastrointestinal disorders.

In the last months the center held the following activities:

• Delivery of fortified foods to children living in poverty

• Childhood cancer awareness talk

• Vaccination week

• Dental health orientation week

• Community Medical Mission together with VCOM (Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine). During this mission 150 children from 5 vulnerable communities in the Punta Cana region benefited from consultations and medications for free.

We are also implementing the Children's Reading Promotion Program thanks to the collaboration of Akron Children Hospital, which consists of donating books to patients to stimulate imagination, creativity, recreation and the habit of reading.

The center continues to make a difference in pediatric care and contributes to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 agenda of the United Nations (UN), specifically Goal 3 - Health and Well-being.

Please see the picture attached to this report.

There are still goals to achieve in this stage of the project:

• Purchase the needed medical equipment and furniture: Additional desktop computers, batteries for the portable x ray machine, additional sterilizer and vacuum cleaner for the emergency area, chairs for the emergency and vaccination areas, various types of sphygnomanometers, new seating sets for the waiting area, office chairs, shelves, oximeters, nebulizers, among others.

• Purchase and implement a software to improve the administrative efficiency

• Expand the staff training program

• Increase the supply of medical materials and medications.

Looking forward you continue to partner with us!

In the upcoming months we will keep you updated on the progress of our project.

If you have any comment, advice or question, please let us know and we will respond as best we can.

Thank you very much again for your support!

Best wishes !
