Children’s hospital in need
26 September 2012
The Sarah Fox Convalescent Children’s Hospital in Silvertown, Athlone, said it is in need of volunteers to assist with caring for its patients.
The hospital cares for children from infancy to 10 years old and relies heavily on donor funding and volunteers.
Hospital Manager Fay Marola said the young patients are treated for a range of medical conditions, including HIV/Aids, TB, malnutrition and burns.
Many of the children come from poor communities where basic necessities such as food, water and electricity are scarce.
