THE QUEEN ELIZABETH HOSPITAL (QEH) is continuing to reach out to amputees by hosting the first  annual QEH Charity Golf Tournament to raise funds to buy prostheses. The tournament will be held next Saturday  at the Barbados Golf Club in Durants from 8 a.m  to 1 p.m. Eighteen teams are expected to compete  in the tournament which is being held under the theme Let Them Walk. Surgical consultant at the QEH and tournament coordinator Dr Jonalagadda Ramesh told  a news conference that they were hoping  to raise $100 000 to go towards  the hospital’s Rehabilitation Unit. “This is intended to let our amputees  in Barbados have access to prostheses, because  as you know these artificial limbs are expensive,”  he noted. “Because of the fact that we have so many amputations in Barbados, we thought that we would try to provide them with a better quality life.”
