Dr. Sylvester Braithwaite, an ob-gyn for over 20 years, can be described as one of those doctors who goes beyond their oath to view medicine not as a profession, but instead as a calling. He sees himself as an ordinary doctor who offers himself to extraordinary situations, and desires to inspire other to follow him on this remarkable journey. As Dr. Houk often says, “To give is to live and a foundation is love in action. It is the things we hold most dear that we will lose someday. The only thing you ever keep is what you give away. ”
Dr. Braithwaite is co-founder of BayView Hospital in Bridgetown, Barbados, and the founder/advisor of over 15 Foundations. He claims, “this work makes me feel useful by making a small contribution toward helping youths reach their dreams or stars. We are truly fulfilling our life long dream and passion by giving our time, energy and money toward worthwhile projects that will make this world a better place to live. We simply "love what we are doing and we’re doing what we love.” Our purpose is to serve others and we believe that work is love made visible.
