Who We Are

Striving to build a world where all children can receive high quality emergency health

Paediatric Emergency Department (P.E.D.) is the only consultant-led Paediatric Emergency Department in the English- speaking Caribbean, serving over 60,000 children per year. P.E.D. is actively involved in teaching and training medical students, doctors, nurses, paramedics, teachers and many more specialized professional groups in Trinidad and Tobago and the surrounding Caribbean islands. 

In order to provide world-class Paediatric Emergency Care, the P.E.D. CARES Foundation was born out of the desire to meet the increasing patient needs of the Paediatric Emergency Department. Everyday a child is at risk of facing health challenges and the P.E.D. must always be prepared to face these challenges.Our goal  is to continuously improve the overall quality of healthcare for the future generations  of Trinidad and Tobago.

Every great organization is always able to improve by accepting the charitable support of those who CARE. With your help, we can do this, to fund our initiatives such as upgrading our patient facilities, providing books and toys for the children and so much more..

Thank You for your ongoing support!
