Balloons for CEHHCF
By purchasing a balloon, you will help the CEHHC Foundation continue our efforts to provide vital equipment and patient care enhancements for the Colchester East Hants Health Centre.
Each balloon costs just 10 CAD and you can buy as many as you like - you can even build, decorate and name your balloon – you never know, that might help it travel farther!
Perhaps you’re asking, why the Foundation? And why should I buy a balloon? Here’s one reason why...
“In the early days of the Covid Pandemic, there was no existing way to monitor the oxygen levels of suspected or confirmed Covid patients. As the CEHHC is the Covid center for the Northern Zone, this was, and still is, of extreme importance.
Very quickly, with the support of donors, the CEHHC Foundation stepped up with approximately $185,000 in equipment funding, which included nine remote oxygen monitoring systems, patient monitors and a portable ultrasound.
This system is still in use now. It saved massive amounts of PPE, and more importantly, a lot of lives. Your support could also help save a life.
As the saying goes... and now you know the rest of the story!”
