19 Jul GRANTS FROM SOROPTIMIST INTERNATIONAL OF SARATOGA COUNTY TO CINTERANDES
Since 2011, thanks to the support of “Soroptimist International of Saratoga County” (https://soroptimistsaratoga.org/), an organization that funds different projects for the benefit of women and girls, Cinterandes has been able to perform several surgeries to girls and women throughout Ecuador. These surgeries include hernia and gallbladder removal, as well as tubal ligations and other minor procedures. Additionally, their contributions made it possible for Cinterandes to purchase iPads for Cinterandes’ telemedicine program, as well as to acquire essential surgical equipment, such as an ultrasound and a suction pump. In 2020, these grants allowed the foundation to replace surgical drapes and gowns as well as purchase a spare part for the anesthesia machine. For us at Cinterandes, it is an honor to have the support of this noble organization and we hope to continue having it in the future.
