Ascent Projects donates to health department | 19 August 2020
The department of health continues to receive donations from benevolent organisations, this time from local construction company Ascent Projects.
Ascent Projects yesterday donated window and hospital bed divider curtains valued at a sum of R100,000.
The curtains have already been placed in the newly renovated female medical ward while the remaining curtains are expected to be put in the male ward.
It was the company’s managing director, Rajesh Pandya, who presented this donation to chief executive of the Health Care Agency, Dr Danny Louange.
Dr Louange thanked the Ascent Projects for the gesture and appreciated the quality of the curtain, noting that it was ideal for hospital use.
It is to be noted that Ascent Projects is the contractor signed on to conduct renovation works on both the male and female medical wards at the Victoria Hospital.
In his address, Mr Pandya stated that Ascent Projects was solicited by the department of health for the curtain donations which they gladly accepted to sponsor.
“As we all know the Covid-19 pandemic has taken over the world like a catastrophe. We understand that the countries’ financial resources have dwindled. Seychelles is one of the countries affected by the pandemic as our economy is dependent on tourism. The budget allocated to the health department has to cater for additional expenditure for such unforeseen and unusual measures. We therefore understand that every drop counts,” said Mr Pandya.
