St Jude Hospital has donated over six hundred pounds of relief supplies in aid of the recovery efforts in Dominica following the devastation left in the wake of Tropical Storm Erika last week.
Among the donated supplies are clothing for adults and children as well as gloves, gauze and female kits. The items, sourced from the hospital’s storage, will go towards helping the victims of the storm.
Dr. Chierry Poyotte, Chief Executive Officer stated that the donated items will be shipped to Dominica via a cargo vessel chartered by Cable and Wireless to transport relief supplies to Dominica. This donation will ultimately be handed over to the Dominica Red Cross for distribution to those affected by the storm.
St Jude Hospital is also spearheading a separate internal donation drive in support of the relief efforts. Hospital staff are being encouraged to donate items based on the priority list issued by the Government of Dominica.
Dr. Carlene Radix, St Jude Hospital’s Medical Director stated that those items will be handed over to the National Emergency Management Organization (NEMO) for transportation to Dominica.

St Jude Hospital wishes to thank Cable and Wireless in getting the supplies to Dominica and the hospital staff for their generosity in responding to the needs of our sister island.
