JP’s Donate to K.H.M.H.

This afternoon, the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital received a generous donation of medical scrubs.  The surgical attire was gifted to the hospital authority by the Justices of the Peace and Commissioners of the Supreme Court Association.  The organization recently revived its California chapter, following the appointment of Michael Peyrefitte as Attorney General for Belize.  The branch’s first order of business has been to assist in the healthcare sector by sourcing and donating almost five hundred articles of clothing to the K.H.M.H. President of the Justices of the Peace and Commissioners of the Supreme Court Association, Adrian ‘Danny’ Madrid, was present for the brief handing over.

“We are not only here to sign documents as we do.  We believe that there’s other areas that we can assist our fellow Belizeans.  Since the Honorable Michael Peyrefitte was appointed Attorney General of Belize, we met with him and I can say that yes, we have a very good working relationship with him now and in April of this year, myself, Mr. Peyrefitte and the Crown Counsel traveled to California to reestablish the chapter in California and to appoint new JPs and senior JPs.  Through that meeting it came about that we need to not only sign documents but do something for our fellow Belizeans and the California chapter did its first work and now today we are here presenting to the Ministry of Health some one thousand, four hundred and seventy-nine pieces of uniforms for doctors and nurses.  And this is just the beginning, I believe that through the California chapter we will be able to give more donations to our fellow Belizeans.  As we speak, the California chapter is preparing to donate a container of some two hundred wheelchairs which we know, we have done our survey and we know that this is very, very necessary and needed in Belize.  So we are happy to say that that is the other project that we are doing, and we have other projects that we are thinking about.  But today we are here to present these uniforms to the Ministry of Health.  There’s, as you can see, we have some of them displayed.  They are for nurses, doctors, scrubs and gowns.  We don’t know much about medicine but we know that you have to use it.  So we are happy here today to do this presentation to the Ministry of Health.”

    this are clearly used scrubs. (they are given for free)
    the cost overly inflated 6600 thousand represents the freight to belize.
    the real issue here is that usa has lots of multiresistant bacteria like staffs and streps.
    are they sterile and safe for belize??
