A fully packed container, which contained hundreds of different medical supplies valued at US$1 million, was handed over to Health Minister Dr. Clarice Modeste-Curwen by St George’s University at their Grand Anse campus.
The medical supplies were a gift from a citizen of the United States, Ellen Ratner along with her family and friends to the St. George’s General Hospital.
An official at the medical school said that Ratner has been visiting Grenada for the past seven years and fell in love with the Spice Isle and its people and wanted to give back something to Grenada.
Health Minister Modeste-Curwen thanked the donors for the special gifts that were donated to Grenada and assured them that the items would be well utilized and put to good use at the General Hospital.
Chancellor Charles Modica was present to hand over the container with the Medical Supplies to the Minister of Health.
