Binder Supports Medical Care in Peru

Apr 15 2008 Read 2215 Times

Binder GmbH has recently donated a temperature chamber to the Diospi Suyana Hospital in Curahuasi, southern Peru, where it will be used for microbiological and serological experiments and for coagulation tests.
The charitable Diospi Suyana Organisation was founded by Dr. Martina and Dr. Klaus-Dieter John in August 2002 in order to finance
an ecumenical mission hospital. The facility aims to provide better medical care to the people of Peru, by helping to reduce the high infant mortality rate and low life expectancy resulting from poverty.
The work to complete this hospital, located in the Andes at an elevation of 8,500 feet, started in May 2005 and the building was
inaugurated in October 2007. In presenting this donation, Peter Michael Binder, owner of Binder GmbH, noted that “many of Peru's population live in poverty and cannot afford medical care.
Under these circumstances, even a minor illness can be life-threatening. We are pleased to contribute to the success of the Diospi Suyana project and hope that our products will assist local doctors in
establishing an appropriate work environment.”
