Project C.U.R.E. (Commission on Urgent Relief and Equipment) was founded in 1987 by James Jackson, who was working as an international economic consultant in developing countries when his work put him face to face with the needs of the sick and dying. During a trip to Brazil, Dr. Jackson visited a small clinic near Rio de Janeiro, where he learned that patients were often turned away due to a lack of basic medical supplies. Jackson was moved to action, making a promise to the clinic doctor that he would help provide relief to the people there. Since then, Project C.U.R.E. has become the largest provider of donated medical supplies and equipment to developing countries around the world. He made his promise, and it was our Chapters’ turn to make ours. Seventeen of our Chapter members came together to sort medical supplies, along the way delivering health and hope to the world. Two to three cargo containers of life-saving aid leave Project C.U.R.E.’s warehouses every week, and our Chapter members were part of making that possible. Special thanks to our three new volunteers that joined us, and the tour given to our Chapter members to learn more about the life-saving work of Project C.U.R.E.!
17 volunteers gave 34 total volunteer hours.
