The Cayman Compass recently published an article about student volunteers who donate time and resources to help young charity patients at Health City Cayman Islands (HCCI), the medically advanced tertiary hospital in the Caribbean operated by Ascension and Narayana Health of India.

The Impact 345 group members are volunteers who visit children at HCCI, bringing clothes, school supplies and toys. The group began with one student who visited a young patient who had visited HCCI through Have a Heart Cayman. After that successful visit, she started inviting friends and family, and the Impact 345 group began.

In addition to profiling Impact 345, the article highlights additional volunteer efforts by two students at a Cayman school who asked their principal to donate unclaimed items, such as backpacks and water bottles, at the end of the school year.

"Have a Heart Foundation perform miracles of saving these children who are less fortunate than we are, and volunteers with Impact 345 spend quality time with them throughout their recovery," the article quotes one of the volunteers as saying. "I hope many more of my peers will join us and give of their time."
