Sabalos Status

Discussions with MINSA, the Nicaraguan Ministry of Health  and The Rotary Foundation have advanced our initial procurement of diagnostic and operating instruments!  Delivery and installation of electrical and HVAC equipment is underway.  Sets of specific surgical instruments have been ordered.  These acquisitions mark the commencement of phase three, the operational period of our/your eight year partnership.  Patience, persistence and tenacity are the principles propelling this landmark, life-saving venture which will continue to be a focus of Santa Rosa Sunrise International Service. 

Thanks to all of you for graciously supporting our efforts to equip and staff the completed Sabalos Surgery Center in Nicaragua. This Center will provide advanced diagnostics and surgical capacity to over 36,000 residents of the Rio San Juan region. Many of you are aware of the political and social turmoil that has overcome the country since the end of April 2018. At the moment, there is very little tourism and getting goods in and out of the country is almost impossible.

The Rotary Foundation had been working with us on a $200,000 grant proposal to support the purchase of needed equipment for the Center. That grant is on hold due to the circumstances in Nicaragua. They have told us that when the situation stabilizes we can resubmit the grant and move forward.

The monies raised to cover staffing costs at the Ritz event in April 2018 along with the other monies we have for equipment are still in our Rotary Foundation accounts and will only be used for the Surgery Center.

Thank you for support and understanding.
