Where your donations go
Providing care is a personal service, and as you know nursing care can not be provided without nurses! This accounts for the bulk of the spend for our Unit nurses who work 24/7/365. Yes even on Christmas and New Years! They can't do their work effectively without the tools. Much of our work is in managing pain, and providing comfort. Medical supplies, and medicine such as Morphine is an ever burdening cost. The Kitchen and Housekeeping teams also work during the holidays. Providing meals, cleaning up and washing sheets and pajamas etc. We need not only their salaries paid, but also the food for patients and cleaning supplies. Other expenses include the water and lights bills, telephone and waste disposal. EVERY GLOBE COUNTS!
Our special ladies, providing famous levels of care 24/7/365 for our Patients
Including Morphine, pain management & other medication, diapers & equipment
Providing not only meals, but clean sheets, pajamas and clean rooms for the patients
With too much to mention, the balance goes into ensuring our patients are comfortable and cared for in the festive season
