Implantation of an Ophthalmology and Otorhinolaryngology Service to provide Health Recovery through Consultations, Therapy, Surgical Procedures of the Sight, Heard, Nose and Throat. The beneficiaries will be from 14 municipalities in the Northeast Region of RS: Paim Filho, São Joao da Urtiga, Sananduva, Barracão, Machadinho, Maximiliano de Almeida, Carlos Gomes, Cacique Doble, São José do Ouro, Santo Expedito Sul, Tupanci do Sul, Capão Bonito do Sul, Lagoa Vermelha and Pinhal da Serra with a population of approximately 90 thousand inhabitants. This service is non-existent in the region, and there is a considerable suppressed demand of patients who need to perform surgical procedures such as Cataract Surgery, Pterygium, Glaucoma, Adenoids, Tonsils. There are a large number of people with the diseases related, mainly by age over 60, whose nearest service is 150 km and the average waiting time and approximately 6 months for the first consultation, in these specialties.
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%.
