Double the impact – Over $6,000 raised, 2 Ultra-sound machines
On Sunday July 12th, 2015 Spice Youth Toronto hosted the 2nd Annual Spice Youth Walk-a-thon (Walk for Life) in support of the Grenada Hospitals Assistance Fund (GHAF) Special Equipment Fund campaign.
The goal of the Special Equipment Fund is to purchase specialized medical equipment for hospitals and healthcare clinics on the islands of Grenada, Carriacou & Petite Martinique. First on the list was an ultra-sound machine valued at 20,000CAD for the Princess Alice Hospital.
As at time of penning this note we have counted $5,553 in funds collected with pledge sheets still outstanding. Thank you for helping us surpass our goal of $5,000!! This adds to last year’s total of $3000.
We are elated to announce that donations have exceeded the GHAF’s expectations, helping the organization to purchase not one, but two Ultra-sound machines – Double the impact!! The second machine will be donated to Princess Royal Hospital on our sister isle of Carriacou.
The executive and members of Spice Youth Toronto and the Grenada Hospitals Assistance Fund(GHAF) would like to extend our sincerest thanks to all of you who supported, contributed to and/or participated in the Spice Youth Walk in support of this cause. We look forward to your support as we continue our efforts to contribute to the development of our homeland Grenada.
