Costa Rica Help for Health facilities - Pérez Zeledón

The very first aid activities in Costa Rica were carried out by the foundation in 1987 in the south-western canton of Pérez Zeledón. For it was especially in the remote rural areas that the need of the population was greatest.

For instance, the foundation donated a minibus to the elderly home Monseñor Delfín Quesada, which provided the residents with a means of transport to go to the hospital and receive medical care. The foundation also helped to keep the local hospital running - donating medical instruments and a much-needed air conditioning unit for the hospital's intensive care unit.
