3201 S State Street, Chicago, IL
Speaker Ruth Aguilar, member of Rotary Club of Chicago Northwest, will explain how Project C.U.R.E. became the largest provider of donated medical supplies.
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.
