Local company Coreas Hazells Inc. this week donated EC$1,000 (EC$1=US$0.37) to help with the expenses of a student who has to travel to the United States for medical expenses this summer.
The student, Shelisa Adams, was born with a bladder condition and will travel to Richmond, Virginia to receive further medical attention courtesy the World Paediatric Project
Divisional Manager-Retail of Coreas Hazells Inc., Debbie Huggins, presented the cheque to Adams’ mother, Kathleen Daniel-Adams.
Daniel-Adams said her daughter has undergone surgery for her condition but needs another operation.
The mother said she is happy that her daughter, who is now a Form 1 student, is making the most of life.
“She is taking it cool, because she doesn’t take on anything. And I am happy and grateful for that because when she was growing up, I used to be scared, thinking that when she grows up she would be frustrated and stuff like that. But she isn’t,” Daniel-Adams said.
The local Rotarians sourced medical attention for Adams in Virginia.
