According to Wikipedia, a free internet encyclopedia; PROJECT C.U.R.E., a registered trademark of the Benevolent Healthcare Foundation, was founded in 1987 by James W. Jackson while working as an international economic consultant with heads of governments in developing nations.

During a trip to Brazil, Jackson observed how many of the clinics in rural areas were unable to accommodate many of the patients due to the lack of medical supplies and equipment and the large number of people seeking medical attention.

When he returned home to Colorado, he collected about $250,000 worth of donated, surplus medical supplies in under a month. He then personally paid for the shipping costs of the medical supplies to Brazil.

Since that first shipment in 1987, PROJECT C.U.R.E. has expanded and now works in over 130 countries around the world.
