Wadia Hospital

We have done a lot of events with the Wadia Hospital.

1. Our first visit to the Wadia Children’s Hospital took us into these huge wards, where there were so many sick children, from newborns to toddlers, thatour hearts went out to them and we prayed for their speedy recovery. At the same time, we wanted to spread some cheer to lessen their suffering for at least a little while.

On 31 July 2009, we came up with the idea of getting a clown-cum-juggler, who would go to each bed, entertain the 250 children with his funny acts and give out gift hampers and balloons.

2. On 13 March 2012 we donated the Galileo EEG review station monitors, an X-ray machine, overhead warmers and a syringe pump for the epilepsy department.

3. Angels Link Foundation (ALF) celebrated their 39th event at the paediatric ward of the Wadia Children’s Hospital on 12 May 2012. Wadia Hospital is a haven of angel doctors and the undying human spirit! It was a magical day of surprises for the little patients and their families. The children in
ward 15 were thrilled when we gifted them a 42-inch plasma TV and a DVD player and showed them Chhota Bheem (animated series). The sheer excitement made them forget the pain and discomfort. They laughed and sang along. The parents were happy to relax and forget everything for some time. The sheer joy that we witnessed, motivated us to donate 7 more plasma TVs.

4. The Wadia Hospital neonatal ICU always faces challenging situations due to limited machines. In December 2014, team ALF was happy to donate 2 Oximeter, that monitors the oxygen levels in critical infants, and 2 Infusion Pumps, that feed newborn babies who cannot breastfeed due to their weakness. We were happy to help the team at Wadia and provide immediate care to serious infants with the help of these machines.

5. On 7 September 2015, Angels Link Foundation donated 2 machines to the Nowrosjee Wadia Maternity Hospital — an LED phototherapy double surface trolley and a Pulse Oximeter NIBP. LED phototherapy is used for babies born with severe jaundice, especially pre-term babies.

We also gifted and set up, a DVD library of 100 DVDs through a collection drive among friends and family. Later, we gifted all the 160 children in the 8 wards a hamper consisting of colouring books, crayons and Ludo/Snakes & Ladder board games.

With medical science constantly evolving, it is imperative for them to regularly upgrade their requipment to provide the best treatment.

ALF was delighted to be a part of this endeavour.
