For a little while it was becoming almost the norm for the hospital to be the recipient of supplies and equipment and though not the first time a church in Montserrat joined the giving. The Salem Methodist church however went a step further and encouraged other districts to join. The call made as, “an encouragement to the other congregations to maybe liaise…and see how they can contribute further…”

The donation of commodes chairs and other equipment (wheel chairs), came on November 22, a few days after a Seventh Day Adventist originated group (MAD) from the UK made a donation of medical supplies to the hospital, Golden Years, the Mental Home and the Margetson Memorial home.

Mr.Clifford Lyte made the presentation on behalf of the Salem Methodist Church, pointing out that the, “Methodist church is tasked basically with outreach programs…” Principal Nursing Manager at the hospital and Mrs. Marjorie Smith Assistant Permanent Secretary at the Ministry of Health, accepted for the hospital, and the Margetson Memorial Home.

Mrs. Smith expressed thankfulness. “We are thankful that we have found another partner in the Methodist church,” noting that this was, “the second time for this week that we are actually receiving donations,” from churches.

Rev. Dr. Joan Delsol Meade explained the origin of the idea at the Salem church. Sister Jocelyn Tuitt’s grandmother was hospitalized (she saw the need), but unfortunately, “she can’t be here at this time.”  “She was the person who actually purchased the commodes and had them shipped here.

Rev. Meade then made the suggestion. “I want to make the point though that this is a

contribution from the Salem Methodist Church. This might very well be an encouragement to the other congregations to maybe liaise with sister Tuitt and see how they can contribute further to importing the service that our elderly and all persons cared at the hospital.”

Miss Desereen Silcott, Principal Nursing Manager, joined the call for other denominations to join. “We are really grateful for persons to really consider making their contributions right here in Montserrat. We anticipate that other religions in Montserrat will be more motivated to see evangelism in another light…” she said.
