THE National Referral Hospital (NRH) was once again overwhelmed by the generosity of Solomon Islands Chinese Women Association (SICWA) who on Wednesday donated it with medicine displayers.
In a simple but touching handing-over ceremony, the SICWA representative said: “This giving is our way of showing appreciation for the important work that our doctors and nurses are doing in caring for our sick and also to ensure our medical supplies have proper storages.”
“Today’s (yesterday) handover is a start and part of the activities SICWA will be devoted to from now and onwards.
“It is the first time for our association to assist NRH and with this first assistance, we have established a platform for us to share and exchange cultures between Chinese and Solomon Islanders, strengthen and unite the power of women and also try to work on charity in a more comprehensive way,” the SICWA representative said.
The association has discussed with the Chinese medical team and agreed to donate the medicine displayers as they have noticed that NRH needs medicine displayers.
NRH Acting Chief Pharmacist, Doreen Ghaokabosa, who received the items on behalf of the hospital said that words could thank SICWA enough for what it has done for the hospital, especially for the donation of the medicine displayers.
“Your support will greatly help us to have proper medicine displayers for safe keeping,” she said.
Further to that, Ms Ghaokabosa said NRH is looking forward for more support from the association.
