At this event they want to tell you about the good work that they have done and about their future plans.

Over the last year Caribbeann North has formally donated the second piece of the skin grafting mesher equipment to the Burn Care Unit in Guyana. Along with additional skin grafting blades, and 2 computer laptops. They have been told that it has made a difference to enabling surgery for the burn patients, decreased the average length of a hospital stay and patients with third degree burns now have a 75 % chance of surviving.

Also they have just completed shipment of a 20 ft container of 1,400 pieces of children's backpacks and 45 computer workstations to supplement existing equipment in the hospital medical records department at St Jude Hospital in St Lucia.

The generous donations of soccer clothing from the Richmond Hill Soccer Club, is also being distributed to less fortunate villages for their soccer teams.

And they are very pleased to report that the decommissioned ambulance they received from the York Region has successfully arrived in St. Lucia. It was officially handed over to St. Jude Hospital on March 29th, 2017.

Their plans for 2017 are:
• To continue their ongoing support of the Burn Care Unit (BCU) within the Georgetown Public Hospital.
• Their earlier proposed remodeling of the BCU with a rehabilitation room and office is now under active consideration by GPHC. It is likely come into fruition in this year.
• To deliver to The Commonwealth of Dominica back packs for their children new school year.

They look to your continuous support of our fundraising events and your donations to assist them to continue their service.
