In July, Yéle Haiti donated a grant to Project Medishare for Haiti, Inc. in support of the purchase of a 16-slice CT Scanner with its own trailer and generator power source. The unit arrived today at Hospital Bernard Mevs Project Medishare and will provide the first high resolution scanning available on the island to all patients regardless of their financial resources.
Before the scanner was shipped to Haiti, Hollywood, Fla. based Metro Signs donated the lettering and signage on the side of the CT Scanner trailer, and even sent a team out to install this signage. Special thank you to Bruno Dede, Omar Khan, and the wonderful folks at Metro Signs, Inc.
The CT scanner will provide technology that will allow rapid diagnosis and effective treatment to prevent unnecessary deaths from major heart attacks, strokes, major trauma and maternal emergencies. This desperately needed technology will be integrated into Project Medishare’s training and education program for Haitian healthcare workers, ensuring creation of infrastructure and sustainability necessary for the long-term health of our Haitian neighbors.
Project Medishare is grateful to Wyclef Jean and Yéle Haiti for this generous gift.
