It takes someone with vision and love for country to pledge support for and bring to fruition some of the initiatives that directly benefits the citizenry in a most tangible way. It was with this vision that the “Children’s Life Fund” was set up under this administration, an initiative which has been able to assist children in need of life-saving surgery and other medical procedures not currently offered in Trinidad and Tobago.
Even going a step further, was the vision for an advanced children’s healthcare system in the soon to open Children’s Hospital. As a mother, it gives me a sense of confidence that those entrusted with our country’s leadership have our children’s interests at heart. Having the understanding that our country’s future lies in the hands of our children, it makes sense to protect this investment. I would like to thank the Prime Minister for making this possible, and it is with great anticipation that we look forward to the opening of the Children’s Hospital.
