A major medical fundraising project has started in Grenada with the full backing of the island’s Health Ministry.
The initiative which is aimed at raising funds to source and ship a container of medical equipment and supplies for the General Hospital Pediatric Ward and Eye Clinic, among other departments, was officially announced on April 13 at the True Blue Bay Resort by G. Swank.
Swank, is one of the founders of the “GNDZ-KIDZ” project, a medical charity founded in May 2017, by himself and Jean Mallipudi. The charity benefits Grenada’s children and recently assisted the Pediatric Ward at the General Hospital.
Earlier today members of the organization were engaged in a fun and games exercise at the hospital’s pediatric, medical and surgical wards utilizing previously donated items.
The project’s most recent fundraiser was a trivia night, co-hosted with the International Federation of Medical Student’s Association IFMSA, at the True Blue Beach Resort.
Several medical students, Health Minister – Hon. Nickolas Steele, Permanent Secretary – Ms. Pauline Peters along with senior managerial and nursing staff from the General Hospital, attended that activity.
The trivia night fundraiser was supported by a number of individuals and organizations including such as the Marie Fielden, True blue Bay Boutique Resort, Aquanauts, Mt. Cinnamon Resort, New York’s Finest Bagels Island Fever and other generous donors/contributors.
