The acclaim came as Alexis John, Marketing Officer of Courts, handed over a Panasonic microwave oven and MABE 9 cubic foot refrigerator to the Ministry of Education, which in turn handed over the appliances to the pediatric ward of the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital.

The handover, which took place on Wednesday, July 20, with other health and education officials present, is just the beginning of a partnership that is being developed between the store and the pediatric ward, and will see Courts working along with that unit on a closer level in the near future.

“We have developed a Corporate Social Responsibility project and we are presently looking at a number of areas where we can reach out to add value and to transform lives.”

“… the Unit would be one of the ideal areas where we can add value, and we will be playing a greater role in the children’s ward. We will putting together the pieces; we are going to get the staff involved and we are going to make it grand.”

John said that the he hoped that the current donation of the fridge and microwave would make the lives of the young patients, as well as the staff, parents, guardians and other visitors to the ward a bit more comfortable.

He said that the excellent relationship that exists between Courts and the Ministry of Education, which was partly responsible for the donation, will be extended to the Ministry of Health through its work with the pediatric ward.

Meanwhile, Minister of Education Girlyn Miguel, as well as Health Minister Cecil Mckie, lauded the gesture by Courts and made calls for others to be involved in the development of the institution.

Miguel thanked John for his role in looking out for the needs of Vincentians in his corporate capacity and noted that the contribution will go a long way in making life easier for all.

“On behalf of the Ministry of Education, I want to say thank you and I want you to continue to do your best.”

“What we are seeing here today is partnership at work… This means that we would be significantly improving the delivery of service at this unit, and it shows what can be achieved by partnerships of this nature as we move forward in the development of our country.” said Minister Mckie.(JJ)
