This past weekend, Rotary Club of Scottsdale members, family and friends joined together to pack medical supplies as part of the Club's community service programs. The Rotary Club of Scottsdale has on several occasions helped provide medical equipment and supplies to hospitals in Sonora Mexico through support of Project C.U.R.E. in its efforts to procure, inventory, store, pack, ship, deliver, off-load, setup and assure sustainability/follow-up.  As part of this week's project, the Rotary Club of Scottsdale presented a $2,500 check to Project C.U.R.E. for use in the
organization's humanitarian efforts. 



Starting in Brazil in 1987, Project C.U.R.E. began revolutionizing delivery of equipment and supplies to hospitals and clinics in more than 130 countries. Besides containers, Project C.U.R.E. sends  professionals to assist partner hospitals and clinics; provides medical supplies to traveling doctors and nurses;  and sends Kids for Kids, a backpack filled with children's basic medical items.  Annually, Project C.U.R.E. delivers approximately two-hundred semi-truck loads (valued at $450,000 each) of donated medical supplies and equipment to needy people around the world.
