By BBN Staff: Today, the Karl Heusner Memorial Hospital (KHMH), in a tradition running for about 16 years, presented gifts to the first children born at the hospital on New Year’s Day.

Private sector entities such as the San Cas Group of Companies and Brodies, along with the Rotary Club of Belize City Sunrise, gathered at the Maternity Ward at the KHMH this morning to present their gifts.
The mothers received products such as diapers, baby wipes, milk, and vitamin supplements, and even monetary donations however the amounts were not disclosed.
Tylon Tillett, public relations manager for the KHMH, explained that this year the hospital gave a donation of car seats to the mothers, in a new initiative to promoting car safety for children in Belize.
“We have seen where kids reach the hospital with varying injuries, that were not secured in the vehicle, so we’re trying to start some initiative get a policy started so that car seat safety is practiced more in Belize,” Tillett said.
