‘One People – One Community’ in action, St. George helps its own
Members of the St. George Parish Independence Committee are living up to the parish motto by donating hampers of food and household supplies to needy families. These supplies were collected from charitable donors in the parish. The COVID-19 shutdown has had a disastrous effect on the world economy, and the central parish of St. George, is no exception.
Mr. Bourne said that they had been able to assist several families and individuals and were looking to render aid to as many as possible, for as long as needed.
The St. George PIC is also working with the Barbados Youth Business Trust (BYBT) to help entrepreneurs start their own businesses, in another initiative aimed at empowering micro-enterprises in the parish.
