Sir Louis noted that he has been soliciting equipment and supplies for the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital from the High Commissioner.

He said that Lewis made contact with the president of the New London Association for Vincentians, Denzil Winsboro, who was able to accumulate the 200 sheets and 100 pillow cases for the hospital.

“We are extremely grateful to his Excellency Cenio Lewis and to the president of the New London Association of Vincentians for making the sacrifice and being so considerate in knowing that these things are always needed at the hospital and going out of their way to work so hard in order to have them for the comfort of the patients at the hospital,” Sir Louis said.

He noted that the High Commissioner assured him that this is not the end of assistance for the hospital, as the Redding Association of Vincen­tians has pledged to donate 200 sheets and 100 pillow cases to the hospital before year end.

In her remarks, hospital administrator Sister Grace Walters expressed gratitude to Sir Louis for facilitating the donation of these much needed resources to the hospital.

“When we see linen at the hospital, those of us who are in administration, it is like a child opening presents on Christmas morning, because we can never have too much linen,” Sister Walters said. She noted that in a hospital, one patient may use up to five pieces of linen in a period of four hours, therefore donation of linen to the hospital can never be too much. (API)
