US hospital to treat local children for free

CHILDREN in Trinidad and Tobago in dire need of medical treatment for various illnesses, will be treated at the Shriners Hospital for Children in the United States free of charge.
Officials at the Shriners hospital, a network of 22 pediatric non-profit hospitals, have agreed to treat children from this country for various types of illnesses, Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar said yesterday during a press conference at the VIP Lounge of the Piarco International Airport, after returning from her trip to the United States.
Persad-Bissessar made the comment as she outlined some of the achievements attained during her trip.
She said her meeting with officials from the hospital, which provides specialty care particularly to children, was very exciting and the Government will only have to cover the travel expenses for any child who has to be treated at any of the hospitals under Shriners. She said the only stipulation of the hospital was that patients must be under the age of 18 and treatable.
The Prime Minister said she also met with Trinidadians living in Brooklyn who have pledged annual financial support for the Children's Life Fund. She said she also sought the assistance of crime-fighting leaders in the United States with respect to strategies and tactics to combat gang violence and narcotics trafficking, which has fuelled a the high homicide in the country.
The Prime Minister said she also held fruitful discussions on the Millennium Development Goal Summit; United Nations General Assembly; and bilateral meetings were also held with Secretary General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon to further the country's development.
