Rotary Club South, IHC to raise funds for children hospital



The Rotary Club South of St. Vincent, in partnership with the Virginia-based International Hospital for Children (IHC), has embarked on a programme to raise funds to procure equipment and to construct a Caribbean Hospital for Children to be located here in St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG) at the site currently occupied by the Windsor Primary School at New Montrose.{{more}}

In this current (first) phase, resources are being sought to finance the equipment now required for use by IHC visiting medical teams who have been travelling to St. Vincent periodically since 2002 treating scores of children.

The main fundraising activity is a series of sponsored walks by local legends Earl ‘Ole George’ Daniel and his walking partner Joel Butcher, to take place at various locations on mainland St. Vincent (a send-off breakfast fundraiser), Mustique, Canouan, Grenada, St. Lucia, Barbados, with the major walk in North America, from New York to Toronto.

The North America walk will require the two to walk for approximately eight (8) days without sleep.
