Project Description

Region: South America

Country: Brazil

Location: General Salgado

Total Budget: $34,876

Area of Focus: Maternal and child health

In the municipality of General Salgado, approximately 150 children are born annually, by normal delivery or cesarean delivery. Since Santa Casa is the only hospital in the city, and since about 6 years ago it no longer does these procedures in the city, since the Surgical Center is inactive, these mothers who need to "give birth" to their children need to look for hospitals of other cities, which puts at risk the mothers and their children, because they take risks in the trips on roads and by the inconvenience in displacements at distances of more than 30 km. If the project is implemented, around 150 pregnant mothers will be able to attend our city, avoiding trips to other cities, which always causes inconvenience, especially the risk of traffic accidents. Project will start in March 2019, with completion scheduled for December 2020. Total project cost: US $ 34,876.00, with the support of the Rotary Club General Salgado, District 4,480 and support from the Rotary Club of the District Abroad, to which we seek this partnership. Club members will assess the needs of the community supported by the project. Accompany the preparation and implementation of the Project. Track project budget. Financially support the Project. Monitor the project.

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%.
