The Special Envoy for Women and Children and Founder of the Lifeline Foundation, Mrs. Kim Simplis Barrow is pleased to announce a generous donation of BZD$500,000 for the new Pediatric Intensive Care Unit now under construction at the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital. The donor prefers to remain anonymous. It is the first half of a $1,000,000 pledge.
It is comforting to know that people recognize the significance of this project and the great need for a properly equipped and staffed facility for our children. This donation will be a huge help in our efforts to ensure that Belize gets its first dedicated Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit to give newborns and critically ill children the best possible healthcare right here at home.
This is the second significant donation to the PICU project which has come through the Lifeline Foundation. Mrs. Simplis Barrow is humbled that the organization, which has been dedicated to the causes of Belize children, is being acknowledged as a legitimate and deserving NGO. She sends her sincerest appreciation to this donor for being a friend of Belize.
