Lions Club rewards year’s first baby at K.H.M.H.

Story PictureFor twenty-eight year old Maria Young, 2008 started out with hope as her first-born child came right along with the New Year. Young said it was no surprise because that was the due date predicted by her doctor. At eight minutes past ten on New Year’s morning, Gennalyn Reanna Young, weighing seven pound twelve ounces, took her place in history as the year’s first baby delivered at the K.H.M.H. As is their annual tradition, this evening members of the Lions Club paid Young and baby Gennalyn a visit in the maternity ward where they handed over baby products worth over two hundred and fifty dollars.

“It’s a miracle, I’m so proud of her. And I’m so proud of being a first time mom. … One of my cousins tell me that if your baby born the first you will receive gifts from some places and it really happened. And I want to thank them and everything come in handy.”

“You will make good use of these things?”

Maria Young
“I really appreciate it.”

Edilia Zaiden, Member of Belize Lions Club
“It’s a layette with all the necessities for a newborn baby and in that we include a box of diapers, in this case it’s a case of Huggies. We give to the baby and then we also distribute to the other babies in the room same time.”

Marion Ali
“This is a yearly thing?”

Edilia Zaiden
“It’s a yearly thing, every New Year but today it happens to be the second. Yesterday we were told that the baby was a bit late, so we had to leave it for today.”

This is the eighteenth year that the Lions Club has been giving out gifts to parents of New Year’s babies.
