MANCHESTER INFIRMARY GETS HELP
In keeping with our mission of helping with patient care at Infirmaries in Jamaica, our association handed over a consignment of food items, clothing, medial equipment, toiletries and adult underwear to the Manchester Infirmary on March 28.
It marked the 4th such occasion that we have undertaken this gesture. The other Infirmaries that have benefited are those in St. Catherine, St. Mary, and Portland. We have identified the Infirmary in St. Thomas as next in line as we work to assist all such institutions across the Island. In making the presentation of these items we hope that our gesture will be beneficial to both patients and staff of the Infirmary. Making these donations also reflect our commitment to assist the most vulnerable in our homeland.
To those members of staff who were present for the handing over of the items, our gesture was well received, as they were very thankful. Head of the poor relief committee of the Manchester Municipal Corporation which has administrative responsibility for the Infirmity, Councillor Faith Thompson assured that the “items will play a crucial role patients care at the institution.”
She thanked our association for the items as she noted the significance of our efforts.
