Overseas -based Guyanese, Mr. Lewis Robinson today handed over a Hydrocollator for the Kwakwani Hospital to Minister within the Ministry of Public Health, Dr. Karen Cummings.
The piece of equipment is valued at approximately USD$3,700 and is used primarily by athletic trainers and physical therapists to heat up “hot packs” that can be used as heating pads on patients with athletic injuries to their joints and muscles.
Mr. Robinson, who lived in Kwakwani for some time while he lived in Guyana, explained that he visited the hospital recently and assessed that they needed this piece of equipment.
The Marine Engineer and Entrepreneur, who has been living in the United States of America for some 35 years, explained that he saw the need for the equipment due to the fact that a lot of logging and sporting activities take place in the region.
Meanwhile, receiving the Hydrocollator on behalf of the Ministry of Public Health, Dr. Cummings, expressed gratitude to Mr. Robinson for his generous donation.
