The citizens of Clarendon and users of May Pen Hospital now have a new sonography machine valued at US $7000, courtesy of Dr. Hyacinth Hue and her husband Eric Hue. The presentation was made to the facility on Wednesday May 9, at the hospital in Clarendon.

The Hues also delivered a number of feeding syringes, some arthroscopy drapes with fluid collection pouch, one immobilizer for the knee and one back brace.

Dr. Hyacinth Hue, who holds double PhDs in Nutrition and Christian Psychological Counselling, in handing over the much needed portable sonograph, told the medical team at the hospital that in her spirit she knows it will bless more persons than she could ever use it to do.

“It is by the gift and grace of God that I came upon this machine. A colleague of mine had an office that was going out of business, he had bought some brand new machines. I had called someone about getting a sonograph and was told that this was available. I was advised to get it at once at a proper price before anyone else and I did,” she said in explaining why she knew it was meant to be.

The Hue family had, in February 2018 this year donated a fully equipped building in Tweedside, Clarendon valued at some $40 million to be used a health centre .

Senior Medical Officer, May Pen Hospital, Dr. Bradley Edwards in accepting the gift acknowledged that it was very expensive and necessary and he was honoured to receive it.

”Mere thanks are not enough, this is a seed which is planted and will benefit the entire Clarendon and our region. I look forward to nurturing it, fertilizing it and ensuring that many people benefit from it. It is a first step to better quality health care and we will begin to use it right away,” Dr. Edwards said. 
Meanwhile, Parish Manager, Clarendon Health Services, Joseph Grant said a team comprising a doctor, nurses and community health aides are currently working at the Tweedside  Health Centre and many home visits are also being done.

“We are moving health care in a direction where doctors and community health aides are interfacing directly in the homes of patients in order to prevent them from ending up at Percy Junor and other hospitals,” Grant said.

He thanked Dr. Hue, describing her as the instrument through which God is blessing May Pen Hospital and the residents of Clarendon. 

Eric and Dr. Hyacinth Hue, who are now serving as missionaries, have also organised several health missions, through which residents benefit from free health services. The family has and continues to make generous donations to areas of education and health, while providing assistance and support to community and church members, schools and institutions, hospitals and government.
