PLACE: El Salvador
COST: Por determinar
As you will be able to verify here, most of the contributions have been from European Leonismo and I would like to think that it was thanks to the work made by us. I know of good source that many of the donations have been made, thanks to the information spread out through the Euro Latin-American Committee.
Gustavo Fraga Errecart, is the Coordinator of projects and grants for Latin America and the Caribbean of LCIF. He has informed us on the state of the donations of designated funds for El Salvador.
During the visit made by Gustavo, he went to the places most affected and four schools were identified, that by the money of the Subvention for Great Catastrophes ($ 100,000 LCIF), will be reconstructed soon. Also, he visited the Hospital of San Rafael, they accorded with the director, the construction of a new pavilion of traumatología and obstetrics. This it will be financed by a subvention of $ 50,000 between the pharmaceutical company Pfizer and designated donations received by LCIF.
It is of extreme importance to emphasizing the great amount of designated funds received, LCIF and El Salvador very are thankful by the generosity of the Lions donors of the world and to District DM-116 Spain, which thanks to its tenacity and work, it has been the greater contributor. Also it is necessary to recognize the great contribution of the 101 DM Sweden and of all the countries for their generous help.
