THE Sandals Foundation has reaffirmed its commitment to childhood cancer research and care with a CAN$50,000 donation to the SickKids-Caribbean Initiative (SCI).

A catalyst donor to the Canadian-based non-profit, the Sandals Foundation has over the years donated more than CAN$1 million to the programme advancing the study, diagnosis and treatment of paediatric cancer and serious blood disorders in children across the Caribbean.

The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) is changing outcomes for children diagnosed with cancer and blood disorders in the Caribbean by connecting medical professionals across six countries to study, consult, diagnose, and treat paediatric cancer as well as serious blood disorders like the sickle cell disease.

Speaking at a cocktail reception for the SCI at Sandals Montego Bay Resort last Thursday, Adam Stewart, president of Sandals Foundation and ambassador for the programme, presented a cheque valuing CAN$50,000 to the SCI Dr Victor Blanchette Caribbean Endowment Fund.

“I am honoured to present this cheque as an indicator of the Sandals Foundation’s continued commitment to supporting the health of our region’s most vulnerable and loved, our children,” Stewart said.
