Interhealth Canada Corporate has delivered on its commitment to invest US$6000 in the education sector with the procurement of eight HP ProDesk 400 G3 Small Form Factor Desktop PC’s for the National Library Service of the Turks and Caicos Islands. The pledge was originally made during TCI Hospital’s anniversary celebration last year.
A press conference was held at Cheshire Hall Medical Centre on Thursday, February 9th 2017 to formally handover the much-needed modern computers to the country’s public libraries. The team from Interhealth Canada led by Chief Executive Officer, Daniel Carriere included Chief of Medical Services, Dr. Denise Braithwaite-Tennant and Information Systems Manager, Detorrie Tennant.
Minister for Education, Hon. Josephine Connolly accepted the donation on behalf of the Turks and Caicos Islands Government and praised the company for its consistent investment in community projects. Other corporate companies were encouraged to make similar investments as part of their social responsibility.
Head of the National Library Service, Cecil Graham who was accompanied by Library Assistant, Sharene Gibbs said the computers were highly-anticipated as the five branches across the country are in dire need of functional and modern computers. These libraries are located on Providenciales, Grand Turk, South Caicos and two branches can be found in North Caicos. Plans are underway to introduce computer classes for library users on everyday software packages such as Microsoft Office.
