Grenadians in the diaspora launch online funding campaign to help transport over 100, 000USD worth of medical supplies to Grenada

ST. GEORGE'S, GRENADA, July 22, 2013 - GIS: Coming on the heels of the recently concluded Ministry of Health telethon, Grenadians in the diaspora working in collaboration with the Ministry have launched an online funding campaign onindiegogo.com to help ship over 100, 000USD worth of medicine and medical equipment from Switzerland to Grenada.

The items which include a wide variety of medication for the identification and treatment of diabetes, hospital beds, furniture and a fully equipped ambulance were sourced by Mr. Chester Simon, a Grenadian business man living in Switzerland.

Of the donation, Mr. Simon says “Healthcare is a community problem. It is therefore up to all of us, whether at home or abroad, to do our part to help in ensuring that the vulnerable in our communities are afforded adequate access to basic healthcare services.”

Advisor to the Minister of Health, Ms. Ann David-Antoine, who has worked along with the diaspora team, praised the efforts of Mr. Simon and the team of Grenadians assisting in the efforts to raise the funds; “The Ministry of Health is thankful to the members of the diaspora who initiated this campaign to get these much needed items to the General Hospital. We urge all to participate in this worthy effort by giving generously to the cause and to share the information with friends and family.”

Persons wishing to make a donation to the effort can do so by visitingwww.indiegogo.com and using the search words; Grenada, Medical supplies.

All monies donated by August 13, 2013 will be used to pay costs associated with shipping the items to Grenada. Donations can be made via all major credit cards.
