by 2 local Rotary Clubs
Rotary Club Curaçao, later also joined by Rotary Club Willemstad, offered Fundashon Prevenshon a financial donation through a Global Grant Project, for a new 3D digital mammograph, also known as Breast Tomosynthesis. Rotary International ensured the donation request of the Curaçao Rotary Clubs be included in the International Global Grant Applications of 2016. Rotary Club Curaçao and Rotary Club Willemstad have approached many international Rotary Clubs, as well as companies and individuals, willing to contribute to the successful completion of the project.
Additionally, the Rotary Club of Willemsted is committed to increase awareness of the benefits of breast cancer screening and the participation of target groups. Therefore, a 10 month Awareness Campaign is kicking off in October 2020.

Curaçao should be applauded for obtaining the 3D mammograph. It is currently the most advanced medical equipment, with improved accuracy in breast cancer detection, in which relatively small breast tumors can be detected at an early stage. The purchase of the 3D mammograph guarantees the continuity and sustainability of Breast Cancer Screening in Curaçao.
On behalf of the Woman of Curaçao, we offer a sincere Thank You to every single Donor for their contribution towards the purchase of the 3D mammograph.
We would like to thank Banko di Boluntario Korsou, particularly Ms. Liliana Rivera from Unidat di Bario, and her team of volunteers for helping us during our events.
