As they travel the globe for work or otherwise, Newmont’s Denver employees have hand delivered 29 C.U.R.E. Kits to countries where healthcare is limited or nonexistent. Each prepackaged kit contains more than $2,000 worth of donated supplies and are approximately 48 pounds, consisting of prepackaged medical supplies that can be easily transported and checked as a piece of luggage. Typical kit contents include exam supplies, wound care and personal hygiene items – critical supplies that are essential to most clinics in developing countries.
Delivering a C.U.R.E. Kit is made easy due to Newmont’s continued partnership with Project C.U.R.E. The Community Relations teams at our mine sites help to ensure C.U.R.E. Kits are delivered to facilities in need, including facilities near our Ahafo and Akyem operations in Ghana; Yanacocha in Peru; Batu Hijau in Indonesia; and Merian in Suriname. To learn more about C.U.R.E. Kits and how you can help us meet a world of need, please visit Project C.U.R.E.’s website.
