Seven charitable organizations are set to benefit from a major cash injection of over $40,000 as part of Flow’s upcoming celebrations.
Under the theme Our Community Matters, Barbados’ leading telecommunications provider will gift the Salvation Army, the Thelma Vaughan Memorial Home, Cancer Support Services and Jabez House with $5,000 each to help cover operational costs and specific projects, while the Barbados Cancer Society, HIV Food Bank and the Barbados Child Care Board are in line to benefit from the initiative.
“We know times are hard but we can never forget those who are less fortunate than ourselves. For us at Flow, we are in the business of connecting people, and for Christmas, it is our ultimate wish to connect in a tangible way with both our customers and those in need,” said Flow’s Director of Communication and Stakeholder Management Marilyn Sealy.
Speaking at the launch of the initiative at Flow’s Warrens Corporate Office, Managing Director Jenson Sylvester said the telecommunications provider has seen the need to make the donations to the charitable organizations out of the fear that the economic downturn is going to have an impact on the vulnerable in society.
“So, we want to ensure that we engage with those that are less fortunate. It is for this reason that we chose an approach that would have an immediate and lasting impact on the lives of as many Barbadians as possible,” he said.
Sylvester also encouraged others to show acts of kindness. (AH)
