Facelift SBC Residence

Updated: Jan 11, 2022

The White and Yellow Cross Care Foundation thanks Samenwerkende Fondsen Cariben - Sint Maarten, Sint Eustatius, Saba for their ๐—ด๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐˜€ ๐—ฑ๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป to improve the interior of the Sister Basilia Center Residence!

The Samenwerkende Fondsen Cariben has provided the necessary funds to redo the interior of the Sister Baslia Center (SBC). The Residence of SBC opened in October 2001 and is specialized in residential care for persons with intellectual disabilities. After 20 years, the Residence was in need of new furniture, curtains and special beds to fit the needs of our clients.

This project has now been completed, and the WYCCF likes to extend its sincere gratitude to the Samenwerkende Fondsen Cariben for making this renovation possible. The clients and staff of the SBC are delighted with the new look and possibilities.

The facelift consists of new beds and nightstands. But also new chairs, couches, and tables for the living and dining rooms and the staff area. In addition to that, the project also incorporated several wall and window decorations and a fresh paint job to give the Residence a fresh new look. With additional funds, several beds, specifically made to fit the needs of some of the SBC clients, were custom build by Koene in the Netherlands.
