Led by senior batsman, Ramnaresh Sarwan, several West Indies players were part of a Digicel-organised visit to the Children’s Ward of the Mount St John’s Medical Center on Friday afternoon.
Despite not being in the best of health, the child patients were delighted and excited to be able to meet and spend time with the players.
In addition to Sarwan, ace fast bowler Jerome Taylor, all rounder Darren Sammy, wicketkeeper batsman Andre Fletcher and fast bowler Ravi Rampaul visited the children and interacted with hospital staff.
“I’m always happy to meet our young fans and it is special to meet these kids who are not in the best of health at the moment. Their laughter and positive attitude is an inspiration to all of us,” Sarwan said.
“I hope that in some small way our visit will help them along in their recovery,” Sarwan added.
The players chatted with the children, played games with them and talked and listened to them about what they were going through.
At the end of the visit, the players presented an autographed West Indies team photo to the Children’s Ward.
