Lifeline Foundation receives $2Million Donation

Lifeline Foundation receives a BZ$2 Million from the Oak Foundation for the Paediatric Intensive Care Unit
The Special Envoy for Women and Children, Mrs. Kim Simplis Barrow is pleased to announce that the Oak Foundation has committed to donating 2 million dollars toward the construction of a new Paediatric Intensive Care Unit at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital. This donation is the result of over a year of discussions and due diligence between the Oak Foundation and the Lifeline Foundation, which was also founded by Mrs. Barrow.
One million dollars have been earmarked for construction while the other million will go towards the purchase of equipment. The donation will allow for the works, which recently commenced on the new wing of the KHMH to move forward at a quicker pace while efforts continue to raise the remaining funds that are needed.
Mrs. Barrow is extremely grateful to the Oak Foundation for their generosity and for recognizing the significance of this initiative. There is a clear need in Belize for a facility that will cater specifically to the needs of critically ill children and neonates. Mrs. Barrow continues working to give Belize’s children the best possible start in life and proper health care from birth is a huge factor in achieving that objective.
