The Barbados TODAY Touch Programme was taken yesterday to St Lucy where four Crab Hill children, Kellisha, Ellisha, Kelliston and Elliston Greaves, were the recipients of four boxes of treats, compliments of the staff at Going Places Travel and Amaze Inc.
The Selah Primary School students have been in the permanent care of their grandmother Althea Hinds since the loss of their mother Cally-Ann Gill under tragic circumstances last December.
When asked how she and the children were coping, Hinds said they were doing well. In fact the children “have improved in their studies”.
“The only thing I didn’t do when their mother was alive was to send them to Selah Primary on mornings. So I am coping just as I did then; and with the help of their uncle David and aunt Maline, they have a very strong support system,” Hinds said.
The grandmum indicated that on Sundays she brings two other siblings, a six-month-old baby and an 11-year-old boy, to her home where they get to spend quality time with the
“The challenging part about the Sunday visits is returning the other two children to their respective homes, because a lot of tears are involved; but the great thing is the children feel very united once they are here,” she said.
Hinds thanked Barbados TODAY and its corporate partners for the contributions.

With her hands tucked neatly around her grandchildren, Hinds stressed: “Once the Lord opens my eyes every day, I will try my best for them.”
