C-PAC Shows Commitment To Health Care

Since the inception of the New York Based Carriacou and Petite Martinique Action Committee (C-PAC), it has consistently been making good on its promise to ensure that it gives as much support as possible to the health institutions of the sister isles and country in general.

On Tuesday President of the 27-year-old organization, Selwyn Mills accompanied by Business Manager of the organization, Desmond Jones, handed over a quantity of medical supplies and equipment to the Princess Royal Hospital.

In making the presentation, Mr Mills said that considering that the health of a nation is the wealth of its people; it compels them to continue supporting the health facilities as much as possible.

The donation he said comprised a specially fitted wheelchair, walkers, a hoist and two hand-held Dopplers, which were donated by two physicians from Carriacou.

“We are hoping to have one Doppler stationed at every health center and this is our hope in the near future”, said Mills.

The gesture to the hospital also included several boxes of additional medical supplies. Since the inception of CPAC in 1990 the organization has consistently donated towards the enhancement of healthcare across the sister isles and country.

“Some of the medical supplies and equipment would be sent to the General Hospital in Grenada as all would not be able to be utilized here”, said Mills.

The complete donation, which also included items to the Top Hill Home for the Elderly, Mr Mills, said amounted to over US$ 6,000.00. 

Acting Administrator of the hospital, Arlene Andrew, accompanied by one of the doctors and other members of staff, pointed to C-Pac as one of their main contributors.

She said that the donation would go towards enhancing the services of the hospital.  The acting Matron added, they hope that other organizations would follow in the footsteps of CPAC to continuously make contributions to the island’s medical facilities.
