IT WAS A case of the youth giving back to the youth at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital on Christmas Eve.

With plenty of gifts and Christmas spirit, the Schools Against Non-Communicable Diseases handed out gifts to ailing children in the hospital’s paediatrics ward to spread some Christmas cheer.

Founder of the group Ashley Lashley told the DAILY NATION the group, which was made up of school children from across the island, was aiming to help bring about a greater sensitisation and awareness of young people who were being impacted by various Non-Communicable Diseases.

For Christmas, Lashley said the group believed the season was a time of giving and so decided to give back to other children around who were living with various diseases.

Meanwhile, Nurse in charge on the ward Linettte Hinkson thanked the group for their presentation, describing it as a lovely gesture.
