PRESS RELEASE – CIBC FirstCaribbean has adopted the Paediatric Ward of the Soufriere Hospital as part of its 2014 Adopt-a-Cause Programme.
The program has over the years contributed towards the work of a number of local community groups that add value to the lives of the elderly and youth on island.
On Tuesday October 28th, CIBC FirstCaribbean will present the refurbished ward to members of the public, hospital officials, representatives of the Ministry of Health and Soufriere’s parliamentary representative.
The annual Adopt-a-Cause Programme is a community-focused programme spearheaded by the bank’s employees, who identify and select organisations within their communities that can benefit from a helping hand. This year CIBC FirstCaribbean employees decided to pool resources and focus on sprucing up the Paediatric Ward of the Soufriere Hospital.
Restoration activities included replacement of the roof, replacement of broken tiles and louvers, refurbishing of beds and cradles as well as resurfacing of bedside tables.
