In 2016 our son was rushed to the emergency room and had to stay in the hospital for a five day observation. Despite the fact that no parent wants to be in a situation where their child needs medical assistance, it was a great relief that the RMHC was there.
It’s a good feeling knowing you can stay in a decent bedroom just a few seconds away from your child. The volunteers of the RMHC are friendly, compassionate and understanding. Just when you need it they are there not only to listen, but to distract your thoughts and worries by having a light conversation with you.
This foundation is particularly essential for the hospital’s Children’s Department and the community of Curacao in general.
