ST ANN'S BAY, St Ann:
THE ST Ann's Bay Regional Hospital accident and emergency department recently benefited from a donation of a much-needed nebuliser, thanks to the Mount Edgecombe Seventh-day Adventist... more Church in Runaway Bay, St Ann.
The inspiration to source the machine which is used for treatment of asthma came from the personal experience of church member Hirfa Minto, three months earlier.
"My daughter, Kathi, had an asthma attack," Minto explained. "She went in for treatment, but the hospital had, at that time, three nebulisers and I observed that they should have more. So many persons were waiting. That meant, only those in critical condition received immediate treatment."
Minto immediately rallied her brothers and sisters in collecting funds for the equipment and had support of another good Samaritan, Sandra Brown-Hylton, a pharmacist, in purchasing the equipment.
It was a joy when Minto journeyed to the hospital to present the nebuliser, which was put to use immediately.
"It came right on time," said Dr Tamika Henry, who was on duty at the hospital when they received the machine.
