The announcement was made by Dr. Felix Antonio Cruz Jiminian, president of the Cruz Jiminian Foundation, during the signing of an inter-institutional agreement with Inaipi, to guarantee the development of health services provided to children, aged 0 to 5 years, who receive care at the state entity.

“Announce it, that from Inaipi campaigns will be carried out so that not a single child with hydrocephalus, cleft lip and open mouth (cleft palate) can exist in the country”, said the doctor and philanthropist.

Likewise, the also director of the Cruz Jiminián Clinic emphasized that he did not know in depth the work developed by Inaipi, which has been achieved thanks to the quality work and transparency developed by Besaida Manola Santana de Báez, executive director of the entity.
