Dealing with the government bureaucracy

Dear Donor, please receive a cordial greeting. There no words to fully express our gratitude for trusting our project an give us your support. Your donation means the world to us ! 

Your contribution will make a real difference in the lives of the underserved people who could be at risk of blindness due to lack of timely ophthalmological care, specially those living at the eastern region of the Dominican Republic.

We continue focused on equipping the clinic areas and the staffing as well in order to inaugurate the center in 2021 and start offering the outpatient consultations services.

 We hope to offer surgical services in the second stage of the project, the surgical  equipment needs to be placed anyway even if only the clinical area is finished.

 Parallel to these actions, we are making efforts to reach a collaboration agreement with the Dominican government to put the center into operation with local human resources, of which some would be provided by the government. The signing of the agreement (regarding the assignment of some personnel and others) has been slowed down due to the change of government in the DR.    

Likewise, we are dealing with the customs arrangements for the importation of the equipment.

In the other hand, we have not yet obtained the Hospital License from the Ministry of Health. 

As we all know government paperwork often do not go forward as expected due to bureaucracy and political aspects. 

We hope to open the center at the end of the year, as soon as it has the equipment, furniture, medical materials and staffing needed to ensure high quality ophthalmological services.

We are together in this and we hope that it will remain so , your support  help make our project possible. 

We will keep you informed about the progress of the project. If you have any comment, advice or question, please feel free to direct them to us and we will answer as best we can. 

 Again, thank you very much ! 

All the best,
