As the Windies Team prepare to take on India in the 4th and 5th ODI here in Antigua, the team took some time off match preparations to visit the Children’s’ Ward at the Mount St. John’s Medical Centre.
The afternoon was filled interacting with the young patients and offering inspiring words about keeping their focus on school and interest in sports.
Patients and players alike also had some great fun putting the pieces together with an interactive puzzle.
The Windies players were not at all shy and were brave enough to test their fatherly instincts in cradling a new-born infant. And our very own Alzarri Joseph took his time to inspire one young patient to stay focused and chase his dreams.
“There are times when we are focused on our day to tasks however, it’s always inspiring to take a moment away to make a difference in someone’s life. The players of the Windies team were such great ambassadors of the sport in their generosity and patience with the children and we would like to thank them for their time and motivating words.
“We would also like to thank the Administrators, Staff, parents and patients at the Mount St. John’s Medical Centre for allowing us the opportunity to pay a visit to the Hospital” remarked Janice Sutherland, CEO of Digicel Antigua.
The 4th and 5th ODI against India kicks off on Friday the 30th and continues on July 2 at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium.
