The initiative was rolled out across eleven communities on the island including Sufriere, Gallion,Scott’s Head, Kalinago, Paix Bouche, Borne, Bense and villages close to Portsmouth. Beneficiaries were selected on the basis of greatest need and who have received the least amount of assistance from other charitable organizations.
Donations were also made to specific community organizations including Northern District Home for the Aged, Dominica Infirmary or Grotto Home for the Homeless.
Julianna Andrews, a beneficiary from Chance said:
“I would like to express my gratitude for all the items we have received, the support is much appreciated.God bless you all.”
Range Developments worked closely with volunteers who have extensive knowledge of the selected communities to ensure that individuals and families in greatest need received the donations.
Verlanda Bruney, a volunteer for this initiative said:
“It was overwhelming to see and feel the joy of the people receiving the donations. On behalf of myself and my communities, we are grateful Range Developments is continuously reaching out to those in need.”
