Shaggy delivers $55 million to Bustamante hospital!

Wow! Riddim Don Magazine must give kudos to Orville ‘Shaggy’ Burrel who through his fundraiser Shaggy and Friends managed to present a cheque with the whopping figure of $55 million to the Bustamante Hospital for Children.

Of course he could not do it alone – thanks to the various sponsors that helped in the cause the fete was able to be accomplished.

But the conceptualizer of the concert put his caring and passion to alleviate the needs of the hospital and to ensure that children had better treatment.

The presentation was made at an official handover ceremony at the hospital yesterday.

“Over 77,000 children are treated at this hospital yearly. This is the only children’s hospital in the Caribbean, so we attend to children from the region also. Shaggy and his team have proven that they are all about making a change and not just another avenue for talk,” said Kenny Benjamin at the handing-over ceremony.

This year’s money will go towards the Intensive Care Unit as well well as other needs of the hospital.
