The Rotary Club of Les Cayes, taking advantage of the visit of our District Governor Dr. Patrick Adizua and his wife Dr. Lesline Adizua, officially handed over to the hospital of Les Cayes on Friday January 25th, 2019 a C-ARM medical imaging device worth of more than $ 182,000.00 that will make it easier for orthopedic surgeons to have a better surgical approach, allowing the physician to monitor progress at any time during the operation and make any corrections immediately. With this device, the results of treatment are better and patients recover more quickly. The hospital and also patients will benefit from savings through fewer follow-up operations.
The hospital of Les Cayes being a center of reference for all the Great South of Haiti will now be able to better serve the population affected by so many accidents of motorbikes and cars but also to receive in the future teams of orthopedic surgeons coming from other hospitals nationally or internationally allowing academic exchanges so this service we hope will become in the future one of the most modern Trauma and Orthopedic Center in Haiti.
This Global Grant project has been achieved through the Rotary Club of Les Cayes thanks to the contributions of Rotarians at their Club level but especially the contributions of 15 Districts, 4 Rotary Clubs through their members, the DAF (Donor Advised Funds) of the Rotary Foundation via the Caribbean Partnership, two Rotarians Dr. Jack Guy Lafontant of the Rotary Club of Pétion-Ville and Beverly Kennedy of the Rotary Club of Boca Raton Florida and finally two non-Rotarian contributions the APCH (the Association of Haitian Bus Owners and Drivers) and the Municipality of Les Cayes.
On behalf of the population of Haiti, particularly from the South of Haiti, with this email I want to thank all of you who made this project become a reality allowing once again Rotary to Make A Difference and Be An Inspiration.
