Over the past week we have been working with President of Voice of the Disabled Mrs Cheryl Adams to deliver much needed support to those most vulnerable who are not able to access resources on their own.
Mrs Adams, a visually impaired teacher at the School for Children with Special Needs in Georgetown has helped us to identify the most urgent needs and challenges facing persons living with a disability in the north-eastern part of the country.
The Trust had made an initial donation of food items including snacks, juices, and canned food. This week, the organisation will receive further assistance to help with food care packages and personal hygiene.
We remain committed to our mandate to provide assistance to those often left behind. The UK-SVG Friendship Trust will lead the charge working with the third sector to meet the needs of those displaced and impacted by the eruption of the La Soufriere volcano.
