Project C.U.R.E. also began when its founder, economist Dr. Jim Jackson, saw firsthand, the disparity in health and service in the slums of Brazil.

“As a Christian humanitarian organization, World Vision U.S.’ mission is to help the most vulnerable children around the world. This means we work in some of the most impoverished and least developed countries, where health statistics are appalling,” said David Scheiman, the group’s senior technical advisor for health. “No organization has enough funding to meet all the need, and that's where donated equipment and supplies come in.”
