Proposal Form

The Maternity Darcy Vargas is the principal Maternity at North of Santa Catarina State, in Brazil's South Region. It attends 28.700 mothers a year. There is a bank of human milk for breastfeeding babies in bad situation. We need to improve that, collecting milk from mothers who just had their babies, colaborating with the Intensive Care Unit (UTI)and others babies who for various reasons can not be breastfed by their real mothers. We need an utility vehicle fitted with termal box for the collection of human milk. Also extractors milk bombs and other components.

This project needs US 33.000,00 at all.

Amount Requested from The Rotary Foundation






Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
