Launched in 2006, Project C.U.R.E.’s First Ladies’ Luncheon is an annual fundraising event that brings awareness to the humanitarian efforts of First Ladies’ from around the world. Each year, nearly 2,000 distinguished guests join together to learn about the First Lady’s key healthcare issues and raise funding to deliver life-saving medical supplies and equipment to the most deserving hospitals and clinics throughout her country.
Former First Ladies’ Luncheons have welcomed Señora Ana Ligia de Saca of El Salvador, Mrs. Margarita Zavala of Mexico, Mrs. Kim Simplis of Belize, Mrs. Ernestina Naadu Mills of Ghana, the First Lady of Panama, Mrs. Marta Martinelli, Mrs. Mama Salma Kikwete, First Lady of Tanzania, and most recently Mrs. Bolormaa Khajidsuren, First Lady of Mongolia.

CASCA and Project Cure — a Providential Partnership
Monday, January 28th, 2008
CASCA Corporate Member QSE Technologies (www.qsetech.com) recently wrote in their company newsletter about Project Cure.
Project CURE – Delivering Hope and Help Throughout the World
We have mentioned this incredible organization before . . . based in Denver and with locations in Phoenix, Houston and Nashville, Project CURE is the world’s largest organization that collects usable medical supplies and equipment and ships them to over 100 needy countries, from Albania to Zambia. CURE medical teams visit each country to ensure that the contents of each 40-foot ocean-going container can be properly utilized.
QSE has been fortunate to be associated with Project CURE for the last several years. This has included many monthly “sorting sessions,” where volunteers sort through donated supplies and equipment, and then inventory and package them for shipment overseas (incredibly, each man-hour spent sorting is estimated to save 7 lives). . . .
There is a secondary component to Project CURE. If you visit their enormous warehouse, you will see literally truckloads of equipment and supplies that otherwise would end up in a landfill somewhere. These items are not usable in the US for a variety of legal, regulatory and business reasons, but they are still usable – and vital – to the countries where they are shipped.
Many of QSE’s medical clients have stepped up to the plate to donate supplies, provide sorting volunteers and even some medical assistance for the assessment teams. Many other QSE clients were already involved with Project CURE. Our thanks go out to them.
If you would like more information about Project CURE, please visit their website at www.projectcure.org or contact QSE. There is plenty of worthwhile and fulfilling work to do.

Beyond The Green Corporation
Monday, January 29th, 2007
Imagine a world in which eco-friendly and socially responsible practices actually help a company’s bottom line. It’s closer than you think.
Under conventional notions of how to run a conglomerate like Unilever, CEO Patrick Cescau should wake up each morning with a laserlike focus: how to sell more soap and shampoo than Procter & Gamble Co. (PG ) But ask Cescau about the $52 billion Dutch-British giant’s biggest strategic challenges for the 21st century, and the conversation roams from water-deprived villages in Africa to the planet’s warming climate.
