During the hurricanes Irma and Maria a lot of staff of the White Yellow Cross Care Foundation suffered damages. The staff of the WYCCF is providing care to the elderly, people with special needs or intensive care question on Sint Maarten with the different departments like District Nursing, the St. Maarten Home (elderly and nursing home), Sister Basilia Center, Rehabilitation department and Psycho Geriatrie daycare. Following the value of the WYCC they work to provide Trusted CARE. And that has really shown this last month. Before, during and after the hurricane a large number of staff worked hard to allow the care to the clients be continued to the best of their abilities and considering the situation. Several staff had to stay at the premises for several days and were not able to go home. Most staff were present as soon as possible after the hurricane and put in their best effort to keep everything going. It was remarkable to see what lengths people went through to care for our clients. To be able to keep going they need to be cared for as well. The staff and the work they do is the backbone of the care that WYCC can provide and indirect their well being affects the well being of the clients. So it is important that in a time like this attention and support is focused on the staff of the WYCCF Foundation. Because who can keep taking care of the clients if they are not well taken care of? Therefore it is needed to go into action to ‘help the helpers’. And therefore we need donations.
