PJT and wife had the joy of visiting a local public health clinic, Clinica Rural El Solado, to deliver some donated medical supplies brought here by some very generous Canadian friends.
It is good the government recognizes the need of medical health services for those who would not normally have access to any form of assistance.
However, the service is underfunded and austere compared to what are North American and European standards. We found the clinic wanting.
The chief medical officer, Dr. Rosi Cabrera, was pleased with our visit and the donated supplies. She asked if we could obtain some medical equipment the clinic is in acute need of:
Blood pressure cuff. hospital grade, a used wall mounted and/or portable units.
A glucometer(s) and related supplies.
An exam table. The one in service now must be 1000 years old and ready to collapse.

Your help would be appreciated.
