Approximately 150 parents and children gathered on RC Level, San Fernando Teaching Hospital on December 21st for the 8th annual Medical and Surgical Outpatient Clinic Christmas Party for the paediatric clients attending Outpatient Clinics. “This party grew from love. Children often see the nurses and doctors as persons who inflict pain. In order to bring love to the children and show them the love doctors and nurses have for them… we decided to have a Christmas treat for the children who visit the clinics,” said founder, Ms. Paula Quamina-Richardson, Registered Nurse. Persons danced to the sound of sweet parang from the La Divina Pastora Parang Group. Children got their picture taken with Santa Claus, faces painted, received party bags and Christmas gifts and hampers were distributed to families.
