Her Excellency the Most Honourable Lady Allen, through the assistance of the Issa Trust Foundation, on Monday, February 10, 2014 donated one Stethoscope, three boxes of Welch Allyn Thermometer Probe Covers and an iPad to the Bustamante Hospital for Children (BHC). The brief handing-over ceremony took place in the Learning Centre and was witnessed by senior members of staff and young patients who were waiting for their regular interactive session with Her Excellency.
Lady Allen said she realized that some of the patients were unable to benefit from the activities at the Learning Centre as their illnesses confined them to their wards. She said that the iPad would be used to help some of these children as the hospital continues to improve on its delivery of service to its clients. She also thanked the Issa Trust Foundation for their contribution and for their support of the hospital.
Mrs. Ingram Martin, Matron at the Hospital, thanked Lady Allen for her commitment and dedication to BHC. She noted that Her Excellency has pledged a significant amount of her time to the hospital and its patients and that through her efforts, the hospital has benefitted immensely.
