The Helping Hands Initiative (HHI), a charitable organization on Nevis presented the Flamboyant Nursing Home on Nevis with an assortment of items on February 28, 2018, to assist in the care of the seniors.
At a short ceremony at the Alexandra Hospital‘s administration office, Ms. Francine Anson, President and Founder of the HHI handed the gift to Mr. Gary Pemberton, Hospital Administrator and said it is the first of many donations to the facility.
“We decided to make a donation to the Flamboyant Home. One of many donations that we will be making and as we are made aware of the needs that the Flamboyant Home has, we will be able to make a more adequate donation,” she said.
The gift included adult undergarments, incontinence pads, and other toiletries, dried fruits and vegetables and scrubs for caretakers at the Home.
In response Mr. Pemberton thanked the group for their contribution and expressed hope that the gift would help to sustain and encourage longevity of the residents.
