Wagenborg, Shell and NAM donate USD 5.000 to children hospitals

Wagenborg Offshore, Shell and NAM donated USD 2.500 each to the UMCG Beatrix Children's Hospital and East Anglia's Children's Hospices.

On behalf of these companies, Operations Manager Wilfried Boelens, handed over two checks to drs. Hanne-Rinck? Jeltema (neurosurgeon, UMCG) and Thom Fryatt (Maintenance & Ops team leader NUIs, Shell) on behalf of East Anglia's Children's Hospices during a small ceremony in the port of Den Helder next to the walk to work vessels Kroonborg and Kasteelborg.

A joint effort

Castor Marine is the supplier of satellite communication equipment for both vessels. Due to a recent malfunction, Castor Marine wanted to compensate the crew of Wagenborg and technicians of Shell and NAM for this inconvenience. Although this gesture was greatly appreciated, it was a joint effort to donate the charity to a good cause.

VR glasses for children

Drs. Hanne-Rinck? Jeltema of the UMCG Beatrix Children's Hospital tells: “Every child receives the most modern and optimal medical care during their stay in our hospital. Moreover, we think it is very important to make their stay in the hospital as pleasant as possible. With the gift of Wagenborg, we have purchased a number of sets of VR glasses for the children. This allows them to completely close themselves off to the hospital for a while. The VR glasses can provide distraction during medical treatment. With VR glasses, it becomes possible that a child does not feel present in the hospital for a short time. We want to thank the Wagenborg company very much for making this possible!”
