The “Shaggy Make A Difference Foundation” (SMADF) on Wednesday handed over much-needed medical equipment to the Bustamante Hospital For Children.
It is the first of a two-part handover of equipment, furniture, parts and accessories with a combined valued of more than US$529,000.
Rebecca Burrell, SMADF’s executive director, shared that the foundation hired a medical technologist to determine what was needed, what needed to be fixed, and what needed to be replaced. We had extensive consultations with the management of the Bustamante Hospital to determine the best path forward.
“We had to determine a strategy for solving the long-term needs of the hospital, and that was where the audit came in. Not including today, the Shaggy Make A Difference Foundation has donated more than 400 pieces of equipment so far and now we are streamlining and expanding our response to the needs,” Burrell added.
Shaggy, who is the founder and chairman of the SMADF, said that he’s proud that the foundation, through the help of our dedicated patrons and friends who dare to save a life every time we ask, is able to continue its work and partnership with the Bustamante Hospital.
