Commissioner Margarita Guzman went to the Dominican Republic with Dr. Roque the first time and it made a lasting impact on her.
“I’m so proud and happy that we finally got the ambulance to donate to my country,” Guzman says.
The mayor’s humanitarian efforts brought this about… by going to countries where there was great deprivation, especially medical care, according to Commissioner Susan Colacurcio.
Many years ago, the mayor says he got into a motor vehicle accident in the Dominican Republic and there was no ambulance in sight.
“Now with this ambulance we are going to be able to save a lot of lives in the Dominican Republic,” Roque says.
