WEST Honiara Constituency has donated $10,000 to the Emergency Department at National Referral Hospital yesterday to support its award ceremony and Christmas party.
This came after the Emergency Department has sent an appeal letter to the Constituency office for small assistance recently.
Constituency Development Officer, Brian Taupiri said this donation is to recognize the work of the nurses and doctors at the Emergency Department who helped patients every day.
Taupiri said this was not the first time for Member of Parliament Namson Tran to assist the hospital as in the past it provided wheelie bins, green scrabs and nebulizers.
He passed Tran’s Christmas greetings to the staff as they continue to discharge their duties to serve the people.
Head of Emergency Department, Trina Sale thanked Tran for his kind gesture to help them and recognize their work.
Sale said part of the money will be used to award staff in different roles they play and recognise their efforts and hard work throughout the year.
She said sometimes during their work, they feel as their work are not appreciated.
In addition, Sale said other will go towards the Social and Fundraising Committee headed by Dr Rose Naesol to organize the end year’s party.
