Members of staff of the Prime Minister’s Office have shown that there are not only serious about assisting with the management of the country’s affairs, they also care about the less fortunate within the community.
To this end, the department made donations to the Salvation Army, the Barbados Vagrants and Homeless Society and the Barbados National Organisation for the Disabled (BARNOD), yesterday during separate presentation ceremonies at their Weymouth, St. Michael, offices.
During the presentation to BARNOD, Clerical Officer in the Accounts Department, David Stanton, praised the group for its sterling work within the community and?? added: "We recognise the importance of your group and the charitable work that you continue to do in the society and this will not be the last donation from the Prime Minister’s Office to the organisation."??
He further stated: "The Prime Minister’s Office has a charitable arm…We are not only here to administer the affairs of the country, but we also play our part in assisting those organisations that are working on behalf of those in the society that need assistance. There is also an AIDS support group in the office and we also support the HIV/AIDS Food Bank."????
In acceptance, President of BARNOD, Errol Hurley, commended the Prime Minister’s Office for its generosity and added that the donation would go a long way to assist with the organisation’s work.
