A U.S. Air Force C17A aircraft recently delivered to Grenada three pallets of supplies destined for children’s homes, schools, homes for the aged and church projects on that island.

The shipment was authorized by the U.S. Department of Defense under the Denton program that matches humanitarian needs overseas with U.S. military excess transport capacity or training missions.

The flight was welcomed to Grenada by U.S. Chargé d’Affaires Bernard Link and representatives of the organizers of the shipment, Father Clifton Harris on behalf of the Roman Catholic Diocese of St. George’s in Grenada and Ms. Lurine Morain on behalf of Good News Project.
