The British Virgin Islands Health Services Authority (BVIHSA) received a donation of $2000.00 for the Pediatric Ward from the eCamps BVI Programme.
The eCamps members who are called ‘eCampers’ made the donation to the Chairman of the Board of Directors Mr. John Cline, the Chief Executive Officer Mrs. Darlene Carty-Baptiste and the Director of Hospital Services Mrs. Cedorene Malone-Smith.
Mr. Cline said, “This donation speaks to the spirit of our community when the youngest of us, sees the importance of strengthening health care in the Territory.” He went on to thank the eCampers and its founder Mrs. Portia Harrigan.
According to Mrs. Harrigan, “The group seeks to help young individuals learn more about their immediate surroundings, as well as to develop a greater appreciation for the substantive issues of the wider world. ECamps focus is to build character, confidence and to assist in the development of leadership skills.”
The eCamps British Virgin Islands programme was established in 2012 in order to facilitate global experiential learning for young people ages 9 – 17. The aim of the group is to develop global citizens, equipped with 21st century life skills, according to their website at www.ecampsbvi.com.
The British Virgin Islands Health Services Authority says a special thank you to the eCampers for their generous contribution towards supporting the medical needs of the community.
