The Campbell River Kinsmen came with a donation yesterday to support a number of pieces of equipment this year.
They have donated to a Medfusion pump for the Maternity department to help ensure that babies are given the correct dosages of medications for their size, to safely monitor them.
They also contributed to Occupational Therapy with the purchase of a pocket talker. This machine enables people with hearing disabilities to be able to hear when their hearing aids are out, lost, or batteries are dead. The Occupational Health Therapists can then relay information to them and ensure that they can hear with proper communication.
And last but not least, the rest of the funds will be towards the purchase of a new Ultrasound machine for the North Island Liver Clinic here at the Campbell River Hospital.
The Kinsmen club is made up of community leaders that have an interest in fostering relationships and the desire to perpetuate the idea of community service. They fundraise through their Safe Rides Home Program, The Black Tie and White Shirt Bar Service as well as Breakfast with Santa and Family Day pancake breakfasts, alongside gaming grants and bursaries, they contribute to their community ever year!
You can learn more about the Kinsmen by visiting their website www.campbellriverkinsmen.com or their Facebook page Campbell River Kinsmen Club
Thank you for your generous gift this year, we are truly grateful.
