Dear Donor, may you receive a warm greeting. Thank you very much for your donation, it is so rewarding to know that the work we are doing, with your help, is resulting in the improvement of the living conditions of thousands of children in need through the access to quality and timely health services

This is mainly you have helped us achieve !, your contribution is really impacting thousands of low income families living in the deprived communities of the Punta Cana tourist destination.

Nowadays the clinic continues offering health prevention programs, outpatient consultations, dental care, vaccination, emergency, laboratory, pharmacy services, x ray services, training program.

The staff of the pediatric center is committed to serve the children in the community and meet the needs of each family, going above and beyond to make sure that they are getting the help that they need. 

In this regard, taking as a framework the inter-institutional agreement with the entity Clínica de Familia the COPE project was developed, in the months of January and February of 2019.. This project, through a process of participatory and collaborative accompaniment with the staff of the center, using the COPE methodology (Oriented Client, Efficient Provider) and to which practical management tools are incorporated; Its main objective is to improve the functioning and quality of health services offered to users and greater efficiency in the use of resources. Main tools: Staff self-evaluation (focused on the rights of users and health providers), user flow analysis, user satisfaction surveys and review of files. A Quality Committee was created in the center to provide periodic and constant follow-up to the action plan developed.  As a result of our alliance with the aforementioned entity an expert pediatrician came from the USA as a volunteer to give a workshop to the medical staff (on March 13 and 14, 2019 ) on the detection of disabilities in childhood patients

 Please see the two pictures attached. 

Relevant statistics: More than 6,773 children vaccinated and more than 9,878 patients attended in emergency, since May 2017. More than 30,000 annual patients  

The construction of the unit to serve children with disabilities (diagnosis and treatment of autism, down syndrome, brain paralysis,  learning difficulty) has started. We are planning to post this project separately in the Global Giving website, given its scope and social impact it will no longer be a new area of the pediatric center but will operate independently as a specialized health center. Please see the picture attached 

There are still many needs to meet, we hope that you will continue to partner with us in our commitment to make it:

Dear Donor, may you receive a warm greeting. Generous gifts from donors like you provide the financial and moral support needed to continue our mission.

With your financial contribution you have demonstrated your deep commitment to our work of achieve a quality and affordable pediatric care center. 

Your support plays a key role in our success in improving the health conditions of the local underprivileged child population

There is no way to fully express our gratitude ! We at the Grupo Puntacana Foundation are continually inspired by the dedication and generosity of donors like yourself who answer the call to give.

Nowadays the center continues offering health prevention programs, outpatient consultations, dental care, vaccination, emergency, laboratory, x ray  and pharmacy services.

We are delighted to inform to you about the activities that took place during the last months:

  • Aiming to implement the unit to serve children with special health condition, we conducted a survey in the vulnerable communities of the tourist destination of Punta Cana, in order to locate the families with children with the aforementioned conditions. We had the collaboration of the University of Florida, the neighbors associations and the volunteers of the local Interact-Rotary Club and Grupo Puntacana company.
  • We delivered, together with the local Rotary Club, an ambulance to the pediatric care center. This vehicle is meeting the great need for transportation of the emergency cases that surpass the primary health care level and at the same time contributes to the operational efficiency of the center.
  • Together with "Centro de Diagnóstico Medicina Avanzada y Telemedicina-Cedimat" (Advanced Medicine and Telemedicine Diagnostic Center)  we held at the center a Pediatric Cardio-Vascular Mission. This included tests and clinical consultations (free of charges) for hundreds of patients, from newborns to 17 years old, living in vulnerable communities in the tourist destination of Punta Cana. At the same time, a conference was given to the center's medical staff about "Early detection of congenital heart diseases ".
  • Two x ray technicians from Akron Children's Hospital conducted internships and training sessions (about modern radiographic techniques) with the participation of the medical staff of the center.
  •  We began, together with Akron Children's Hospital, a Children Reading Progran for the benefit of the more than 150 patients who visit the pediatric center every day

Please see the 7 pictures attached to this report.

There are still many goals to meet, we hope that you will continue to partner with us in our commitment to achieve them:

  • The addition of an unit to serve children with special health condition (autism, physical disability, learning difficulty,)
  • Missing medical equipment
  • Staff training programs
  • Constant supply of medical supplies and medications.

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.
