Lifelites helps children at Tŷ Hafan Look to the future with eye-tracking tech
State-of the-art technology that works by the “glint of an eye” has been donated to a Cardiff children’s hospice by ward-winning charity Lifelites as they unveiled a trend-setting technology project at Tŷ Hafan children’s hospice.
Jayne Saunders, Director of Care at Tŷ Hafan, said: “We are delighted to have benefitted from this fantastic project which will make such a difference to the children and young people we support. We pride ourselves on being a centre of excellence for children’s palliative care and embrace new and innovative technologies which focus on improving the quality of life of children not expected to reach adulthood. We are incredibly grateful to Lifelites for their continued support and are very much looking forward to seeing the children enjoying this state-of-the-art equipment.”
The charity says that Lifelites equipment and support will cost around £50,000 over the next four years but Tŷ Hafan children’s hospice won’t have to pay a penny towards it. Instead, Lifelites has been supported by the Province of Monmouthshire freemasons and Thomas Cook Children’s Charity, amongst others.
Malcolm Lane, the Provincial Grand Master of Monmouthshire said: “I’m very well acquainted with the importance of Lifelites projects for life-limited children in our Province. We know the money donated tonight will be put to excellent use: providing specialist technology for children at our the Lifelites project closest to our hearts here in South Wales.”
