She was very premature. When she was 10 days old, ANTS (Acute Neonatal Transfer Service) ambulance came and collected her, drove her back to Addenbrooke’s and here we stayed for the next four months… I think she met half the doctors in the hospital and all the nurses!
But I had this immense feeling of guilt that so much care and money was spent on this one child and that so many children don’t have this opportunity. So when Elsa, who was her nurse, went for a week in Botswana while we were in the unit and came back telling all these wonderful tales of her time there, we thought that actually this is a great way that we can say a partial thank you to everybody.
The children in Botswana don’t get the care that Daisy gets and it was clear that we wanted to say thank you to the staff here. The staff were appreciating their chance to go to Botswana or somewhere else in the world, so this seemed a way to say thank you both to the staff and also to help others in our situation.
That’s why we made the donation. We’re extremely grateful.
