Guerneys for the QEH, Life Saving Operations for children and more from the Sandy Lane Charitable Trust

Children in need of medical attention – who live with Scoliosis (curvature of the spine) or Rickets (softening of leg bones and knee joints) – and other challenges now have an affordable means of addressing such difficulties thanks to the Sandy Lane Charitable Trust.

International non-profit, humanitarian organization World Pediatric Project and the Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) joined forces with the Trust to be an angel for 10 children with medical issues, in an effort to change their lives.

Trustee Phillipa Challis, speaking at the Sandy Lane Country Club recently explained this alliance was to "give medical aid to various different children in Barbados, both home and overseas".

Fighting back tears, Challis declared through the multi-pronged effort, these youngsters will get “whatever funding is necessary to ensure the…mission is achieved“.

She added that medical and subsistence sponsorship will be provided to the children and their parents wherever necessary.
