Mothers in the Maternity Ward of the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) were treated like royalty on Mother’s Day, thanks to Digicel Barbados.
Representatives from the company paid a special visit to patients at the health care facility yesterday and presented them with personal care packages in an effort to assist the new mothers with the initial stages of motherhood.
Commercial director of Digicel (Barbados) Limited, Alex Tasker, said the activity was an annual one which the management and staff of the company look forward to each year: “The recognition of mothers is something which Digicel is committed to. We believe that all mothers should be celebrated for the very important role they play in raising our children to adulthood.
“We are always happy to see the many new babies here each year and are more than pleased that we can assist these new mothers in a tangible way. It is our way of celebrating the day with meaning.”
Tasker added as a result of these visits Digicel was always able to identify other ways in which the company can assist the hospital and its patients: “Working together with our staff and that of the QEH, we are able to embark upon a plan to achieve these goals, which we see as part of our social responsibility to assist in the community where ever possible.”
During the visit, both staff and patients at the hospital expressed their gratitude for the food, sanitary, medical and cosmetic items which were presented to them by the Digicel team. (PR)
