The Kiwanis Club of Bermuda has donated $21,000 towards a new incubator that will be used in the Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU) in the Maternity Department of the King Edward VII Memorial Hospital.
Christine Virgil, Clinical Director of Maternal Child, comments: “We are very grateful for this very kind donation. Such donations make a big difference on the front line of care for some of our most vulnerable patients. Incubators are usually used for premature or unwell newborn babies and so on behalf of all the parents and children who will use this equipment, I’d like to thank the Kiwanis Club for their efforts in supporting us.”
Chairman of Kiwanis, Mr David Burgess, comments: “The Kiwanis Club of Bermuda is extremely proud to support local hospital services, especially those caring for Bermuda’s children and babies. The funds have been raised by various activities by our members, from sales to fish fries, as well as support from Kiwanis International. It is our great pleasure to make this donation to support such an important service for the country.”
