WMH Employees Support a Good Cause

The Western Maine Health Employee Activity Committee (WMH EAC) and employees of Western Maine Health came together recently in support of the Safe Passage program.

Safe Passage is a program that works with the poorest, at-risk children of families working in the Guatemala City garbage dump. They provide a safe and caring environment, and a program that fosters hope, good health, educational achievement, self-sufficiency, self esteem and confidence.
Employees learned of a fellow MaineHealth employee who is traveling with Safe Passage to inner city slums in Guatemala to work with children. 

They requested any outdated supplies that the hospital might have on hand to be donated.  Instead, the WMH EAC as well as individual employees provided monetary donations used to purchase needed supplies brand new for the trip.  Some of the donations include: kerlix gauze rolls, sterile 4 x 4 gauze, abdominal pads, ibuprofen, Tylenol and antibiotic ointments.
