Emancipation Independence Day babies 2016

The first and second babies born on both Emancipation Day (August 1) and Independence Day (August 6) 2016, were honoured yesterday at the Falmouth Hospital.

The mothers of the babies received clothing, toys and other gifts donated from Toronto, Canada.

This is the sixth consecutive year that babies born on these dates are being honoured, and it is as a result of the charitable work of one daughter of Duncans, Michelle Green-Ford, who now resides in Toronto. She is a member of the large Green family from Queen Street, Falmouth. Her work comes through Michelle’s Charity.

In 2010, Michelle said she got a vision about helping an institution back home. She chose the Falmouth Hospital, considering her grandma, Mrs VL Whittaker, worked there for several years. Michelle decided that she would adopt the maternity and children’s ward, and since then she has returned each year to make her contribution.
