CFEBA Fundraising Gala: Light & Hope for Puerto Rico
Please join us at the Charitable Foundation's 2018 Fundraising Gala, Light & Hope for Puerto Rico or Luz & Esperanza, in Spanish, on May 7, 2018 at the Renaissance Washington DC, from 5:30pm-9:00pm ET.
This year, in partnership with the Puerto Rico Primary Care Association (PCA), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, CFEBA has the special opportunity to help the US Territory of Puerto Rico ensure health center resiliency and improve its disaster preparedness in response to catastrophic destruction of the electrical grid caused by Hurricane Maria and Hurricane Irma.
With your support, CFEBA will help provide solar panels, inverters, and battery systems to 15 to 20 primary health care centers located throughout Puerto Rico. Nearly half of the permanent health care centers in Puerto Rico still remain without grid power or are operating on diesel generators. This project will address refrigeration needs for perishable medication such as insulin, vaccines, and certain liquid antibiotics, which all require proper temperature storage conditions to work as intended and to not pose risk to the health of the person receiving medicine.
