The Family and Friends Foundation of Langenburg is the latest group to step up with a donation for the purchase of a new surgical microscope for the Yorkton hospital.
Health Foundation executive director Ross Fisher says the “why” for making the 5 thousand dollar donation was an easy question to answer.
“Their board was very supportive of it,” Fisher said of the Langenburg organization. “One of the fellows who presented the cheque, Ty Thorpe, is a pharmacist in Langenburg, and he said he talks to people almost daily about eye issues.”
Fisher says they only have about 10 thousand dollars more to go for the new device.
