Barbadian Energy Company appreciated for assistance with latest NGO Charity
A new association has been formed to represent children with brain injury, one of the most vulnerable groups of differently-abled Barbadians.
The Barbados Association for Children with Brain Injury (BACBI) was registered just last month with the Corporate Affairs and Intellectual Property Office, formalising the efforts of a parent support group for children attending the Challenor School.
Noting that the Association was a long awaited blessing for both the parents and affected children, spokesperson Christina Allman said they were grateful for the support of a number of individuals and organisations who had so far contributed, particularly Sol which supported the effort from inception.
“Sol stepped up to the plate and backed our cause from the outset, even extending follow-up support to help keep us afloat and for that we are extremely grateful. Once again, thank you, and on behalf of BACBI we pledge to maintain a strong relationship with your company, which has proven to be a caring and sensitive towards the vulnerable members of our society,” Ms. Allman stated.
Further expressing gratitude to volunteers, officers, and trustees of the new association, Ms. Allman said BACBI was keenly anticipating the task of representing Barbados’ children who were challenged with brain injury.
“The hard work has just begun and we are excited and positive about the future. We have come this far and can go further with God’s help.”
“When we initially learnt of the need, we were pleased to be able to offer assistance by sponsoring special transportation for the children. We believe that despite their challenges, these children are special gifts and should be afforded every opportunity to realise their potential,” King stated.
Sol began its sponsorship of the initial parent support group for children of the Challenor School affected by brain injury one year ago, by significantly defraying the cost of specialised vehicles needed to transport the children to school, medical appointments, and social activities.
