The Milton Cato Memorial Hospital is a recipient of 200 sheets and 100 pillow cases compliments SVG’s High Commissioner in London, His Excellency Cenio Lewis, and President of the New London Association for Vincentians, Denzil Winsborough.
The items were handed over to the hospital on Thursday by Sir Louis Straker, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Deputy Prime Minister.
Sir Louis Straker noted that he has been soliciting equipment and supplies for the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital from the High Commissioner in London, His Excellency Cenio Lewis.
He said that His Excellency Cenio Lewis made contact with the President of the New London Association for Vincentians, Denzil Winsborough who was able to accumulate the 200 sheets and 100 pillow cases for the hospital.
“We are extremely grateful to His Excellency Cenio Lewis and President of the New London Association for Vincentians for making the sacrifice and being so considerate in knowing that these things are always needed at the hospital and going out of their way to work so hard in order to have them for the comfort of the patients at the hospital” Straker said.
Straker noted that His Excellency Cenio Lewis assured him that this is not the end of assistance for the hospital as the Reading Association for Vincentians has pledged to donate 200 sheets and 100 pillow cases to the hospital before year end.
In her remarks, Sister Walters, Hospital Administrator, expressed gratitude to Sir Louis Straker for facilitating the donation of these much needed resources to the hospital.
Sister Walters said, “When we see linens at the hospital, those of us who are in administration, it is like a child opening presents on Christmas morning because we can never have too much linens.” She also noted that in a hospital one patient may use up to five linens in a period of four hours, therefore linens are never too much to be donated to a hospital.
