After two years of fundraising and preparation, students from St. George’s University Global Surgery Club recently presented a donation of medical supplies and equipment valued at $1 million to the Government of Grenada.
“We are extremely grateful to have received this gift,” stated Pauline Peters, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Health, Grenada. “We all know the challenges that Grenada faces in regard to resources, so whatever partnership or collaboration we can foster with generous donors we’re more than willing to do so. This donation will go a long way in supporting the transformation of health care in Grenada by ensuring that all of our hospitals and health centers are fully equipped and stocked with the necessary medical supplies and equipment to provide essential health services.”
The Medical Benevolence Foundation (MBF) works with local churches in developing countries and supporting partners in the U.S. to build sustainable medical ministries serving the most vulnerable and marginalized populations. Nurses play a critical role in the delivery of essential health services and in strengthening health care systems. The Mary K Center for Global Nursing Development was established to improve nursing education so that nurses in the most vulnerable countries have the skills, competencies, clinical knowledge and judgement to handle the complexity of the unique healthcare challenges facing the populations they serve. They are also trained and empowered to be leaders to help improve the quality of care and advocate for better clinical outcomes in their countries.
The Mark K Center for Global Nursing Development (MKCGND) is focused on the following goals:
- Building Bridges and Relationships
- Improving Quality of Nursing Education and Advancing Nursing Practice
- Establishing Fully Assessable Resources to Foster Global Collaboration
- Growing Ministry
The holistic integration of medical care and the Gospel is fundamental in the mission of MBF and MKCGND. Click here to learn more about the programs and projects of the Mary K Center for Global Nursing Development.
