Unicomer (Jamaica) Limited (Courts Jamaica) mobilised an islandwide network of more than 100 volunteers on Labour Day.

The team assisted with transforming the Accident and Emergency units at the Bustamante Hospital for Children, Port Maria, St Ann's Bay and Spanish Town hospitals. This was in keeping with the theme for Labour Day, 'For Health's Sake ... Keep It Clean'.

"The Labour Day committee was actively scouting projects long before the national theme was announced. We were very delighted to know that the planned activities were in keeping with the theme. We were able to paint the units at these hospitals, provide air-conditioning units at the Spanish Town Hospital and Bustamante Hospital for Children, and refurbishing cabinetry at the St Ann's Bay trauma bay," stated Renae McKenzie, public relations officer at Unicomer (Jamaica) Limited.

She said that after Labour Day, the company's input extended until the end of the week.

"Much-needed signage at the units are being installed as well as the Port Maria Hospital benefiting from signage on the roadway that was previously destroyed," she said. "Nebulising units have been ordered for all the accident and emergency units and will be delivered within the next three weeks."

Dr Mara Hosang of the Bustamante Hospital for Children expressed her gratitude for the initiative spearheaded by Unicomer and said the department looked brighter after the work. She added that the installed AC units would assist greatly in the hospital's asthma treatment room.
