MALF partakes in St. Vincent & the Grenadines Disaster Relief Drive
As part of its humanitarian response to those affected by the natural disaster in St. Vincent and the Grenadines, the Ministry of Agriculture, Land and Fisheries (MALF), embarked on a collection drive, in which all members of staff, were encouraged to support the initiative.
To this end, collection boxes were strategically placed across the Ministry’s various Divisions over the last couple weeks, where they were individually delivered and subsequently packaged by staff of the Corporate Communications Unit for dispatch. Items received included canned foods, dried foods, milk, sugar, flour, water and a host of hygienic items including hand sanitizers, soap, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, body lotion and bathroom / kitchen tissue.
On hand to view the collected items earlier today (Friday 30th April, 2021), were the Permanent Secretary (Ag.), Ms. Susan Shurland; Corporate Communications Manager, Mr. Dominic Hinds and Administrative Officer II (Property Management Unit), Ms. Nisha Alsaran-Ramsawak.
The Collection Boxes will be delivered to a drop off point in Chaguanas later today, en route to St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG).
The Ministry sincerely thanks its staff for their heartfelt generosity, as we continue, in a spirit of camaraderie and goodwill, to assist our regional neighbours, during their time of need.
