The URGE To Give (article 9/18/2008)



Charitable organisation donates equipment to children's hospital
The Surgical Ward and the Burnt Unit at the Bustamante Hospital for Children yesterday received much needed equipment that will enhance their ability to deal with emergencies such as cardiac or respiratory arrests in children.

The equipment, valued at over $1 million, was donated by Rita Marley - widow of legendary reggae icon Bob Marley - on behalf of Unlimited Resources Giving Enlightenment (URGE) and included 10 Truphatek Fibre Optical Laryngoscope sets, blood pressure machines, chairs for parents and nurses, one Mayo Stand for the operating theatre, stand-mounted suction pump and Metro Basic Crash Cart.

"It is something in our vocabulary that the aged be protected and the infant cared for. And URGE is an organisation that does that all over the world, not only in Jamaica, and we see it very important to put our hands out for the children, especially those in need," Marley told the Observer.
