Half A Million US Dollars: Shaggy’s Foundation Continues To Donate To Bustamante Hospital

Reggae/Danchell superstar Shaggy through his Shaggy, Make a Difference Foundation (SMADF) has handed over medical equipment to the Bustamante Hospital For Children.

According to a Gleaner report, this is the first of a two-part handover of equipment, furniture, parts and accessories with a combined valued of more than US$529,000.

“We had to determine a strategy for solving the long-term needs of the hospital, and that was where the audit came in. Not including today, the Shaggy Make A Difference Foundation has donated more than 400 pieces of equipment so far and now we are streamlining and expanding our response to the needs,” Burrell added who is the SMADF’s executive director.

“We all know that Bustamante is the only hospital of its kind in the English-speaking Caribbean. It’s something we talk about all the time, and year after year, thanks to everyone who help. They are more and more able to give their precious patients the best care. It is the beginning of a new era for the services that are offered by the Bustamante Hospital, and we are happy to be a part of it,” said Shaggy, who is the founder and chairman of the SMADF

“Everything that happens at Bustamante, it’s a part of you now,” said Dr. Brian James, head of the hospital’s Intensive Care Unit (ICU). “We find that we live in a so-called Third World country, and despite our commitments to doing this, despite our training, despite all of what we come here to do, we’re not necessarily provided with everything we need in order to do it. And then steps up the Shaggy Make a Difference Foundation.” Shaggy adds
