Public health professionals from Marechal Cândido Rondon city have presented a need for new Digital X-ray equipment, because their current equipment is obsolete, and results in unconfident diagnoses due the low quality.

In addition, it is difficult to find supplies for this old equipment, and it is not agile as the new ones. Its technological operation delays the diagnosis and also results in harmful consequences to the health of the patients and to the workers that operates it.

Finally there is the aggravating fact that the current equipment is harmful to the technicians since its operation exposes them to the radiation that was not as well controlled as it is in the new equipment.

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%.
