The purpose of CHIME is to collect funds for the patient’s procedure. The package covers all costs from the time of admission, the procedure, tests and investigations during the period, medication, diet and hospital stay.
However if a donor who has donated to CHIME wishes to give a gift of kind or money to a child, he may do so at the time of discharge.
- One patient received a teddy bear with a donation to CHIME.
- A donor who had collected money for a baby’s surgery, felt she must give a pair of new clothes for the child to wear when he was getting discharged.
