Pond Island:— Kind-hearted volunteers with the Helping Hands Foundation were recently on the receiving end of kindness when they received a generous donation from TelEm Group to assist with repairs to their customized wheelchair bus for seniors.
The group appealed for help from TelEm Group so that they could continue their daily transport of seniors and disabled persons to hospital, various clinics and also to pharmacies for medical supplies.
According to Foundation treasurer, John Hodge, the bus service was in danger of coming to a grinding halt because of failing parts to the group’s customized wheelchair bus.
“Because our bus has a lifting mechanism for the wheel-chair bound, it is in high demand and needs to be on the road,” explained Mr. Hodge.
He said he was most grateful to TelEm Group and other sponsors who have rallied round to help with the cost of providing replacement parts for the vehicle.
“Our seniors have contributed to this island through hard labour and they deserve all the help we can give them at their time of need,” said the Foundation official.
TelEm Group Senior Account Manager, Lucrecia P. Lynch, thanked the Foundation for the work they are doing in the community on behalf of seniors and the disabled.
“We were informed that amongst the persons you transport to the hospital each day are many dialysis patients who have come to depend on your service to safeguard their life – for that and all the others work you do, we encourage you to continue aiding your community and much success,” said Lucrecia.
