She spoke on behalf of the Vila Central Hospital, Children’s Ward staffs last week and thank Amicale FC Senior Team President Andrew Leong and his members after they presented the Children’s Ward with toys, blankets, towels and clothes for children.
“Today is a great day for our sick children.” Said Dr. Annette Garae.
“Christmas is still two months away but our kids in the hospital can smile now because they have toys to play with.” She said.
“Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to visit them in hospital during their illness.”
“It is gestures like yours which helped give them the strength to recover, and I am sure they really enjoyed seeing your friendly face there today with all the gifts.”
“Visiting someone who is sick isn’t always easy, but it can be an enjoyable time and it should primarily be a comfort for the patient and heal their hearts.”
“This is not about money spent- the gift can be something you made, like a card, cloth and a toy for the children . Let’s face facts, we all like receiving gifts, especially when we are not feeling our best.
“On behalf of the manager of Vila Central Hospital, I take this opportunity to thank you Andrew Leong and your committee for coming today and donating all these toys and clothes to our sick children.” She concluded.
