HEAR THE CHILDREN’S CRY: India gives generous cash donation to Bustamante Hospital For Children

The Bustamante Hospital for Children received an additional financial boost for the purchase of medication and equipment when Prime Minister Bruce Golding on Wednesday accepted a gift of US$300,000 from the Indian government through the High Commissioner of India, His Excellency Mohinder Singh Grover (above, left). Golding expressed appreciation on behalf of the government for the assistance to the hospital. The donation, he said, would enable the dedicated staff to provide even better care for the sick children.

The presentation was made at Jamaica House in the presence of Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade Dr. Ken Baugh, health minister Ruddy Spencer and high level officials from the Ministry of Health.
