Help improve the hospital facilities with essential equipment and training
The ‘Helping Hands for Glendon’ is a registered charity organisation that was founded with the intention to desperately raise funds as a humanitarian gesture to help improve the hospital facilities with essential equipment and training.
Dear fellow Montserratians and Friends,
Welcome to our website. We the committee of ‘Helping Hands for Glendon’ are making a global appeal to all to help our island to achieve its maximum potential. This is by raising funds for the necessary equipment that the hospital needs. Hopefully with all your help, by the time we have obtained all the necessary equipment we would have a purpose built hospital to place them in.
It is imperative to remind you that without your support the organisation would not exist. We believe in transparency, therefore we have opened a bank account for all proceeds to be paid into. The amount in the
account can be monitored on our ‘Go Fund Me’ page, and we will also keep you updated via our Instagram account.
We hope you find our website informative as we are committed in our service to Montserrat.
Yours passionately, dedicated to Montserrat
Helping Hands for Glendon
Struck by two major disasters: Hurricane Hugo in September 1989 and the volcanic natural disaster in July 1995
Since 1996 Glendon Hospital was relocated to a temporary base in St John’s School, this is because the island was struck by two major disasters: Hurricane Hugo in September 1989 and the volcanic natural disaster which started in July 1995. To date this is still case. The picture shows the hospital in December 1996 covered by volcanic ash
It is the aim of the ‘Helping Hands for Glendon’ charity to bring awareness of the needs of Glendon Hospital. It is our mission to contribute to the health and well-being for the people on island of Montserrat who are in need of medical assistance, this is by helping to enhance and improve the existing service making it more self-sufficient.
Temporary use of school as the hospital
A temporary Hospital has been established at St John’s School from April 1996 and is still being used.
