Mr. Padraig Crumlin, MUA National Secretary
and President of the International Transport Workers Federation
Dear Mr. Crumlin,
I received with honor and deep satisfaction on behalf of our Hospital Cardiocentro Pediatrico William Soler the communication about the donation of the Tas Bull International Aid Project from the Maritime Union of Australia.
We are deeply recognized with all the good Australian friends that have been making strong efforts during many years for support our Hospital and give health to our children.
The 10, 000 dollars could be very useful for acquiring an UPS (battery unit) for protecting from power cuts the Angioscope equipment at our Cath Laboratory, where we perform the hearth catheter studies in babies.
Thank you again, dear friend Mr. Crumlin, to you and all comrades at MUA.
With our best wishes, In solidarity,
Dr. Eugenio Selman
