Police receive more supplies from Rapid Relief Team
The Royal St. Vincent and the Grenadines Police Force (RSVGPF) has received another generous donation of items from the Rapid Relief Team (RRT) for further distribution to persons in the communities which have been affected by the explosive eruptions of La Soufriere Volcano.
On Wednesday June 23, Kenley Ward, team leader of the RRT, handed over 25 food boxes, and ten boxes containing baby-essential items, to Commissioner of Police, Collin John, at the Central Police Station, a release from the RSVGPF states.
During the handing over ceremony, Ward said that his organisation is a Christian-based organisation that expresses care and compassion through donations made to disadvantaged persons. He mentioned that since the eruption of the Volcano, his organisation donated over 16,238 food boxes and 14,000 bottles of water to the people of St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG). He added that since their previous donation to the police, the RRT felt the need to do so again by donating 25 food boxes and 10 baby-essential boxes for distribution to persons in need.
Ward said his organisation recognises that the police are most likely the first to interact with persons and families in crisis, and the donation is to help provide support to those persons. The RRT representative also mentioned that with respect to public relations, his organisation shares a common interest with the RSVGPF, and he hopes to forge future partnerships through similar initiatives.
Commissioner of Police, Collin John, received the items on behalf of the RSVGPF, and thanked the RRT and the parent church for their generous donation. He said the contributions made by RRT is ample evidence that the church is fulfilling its purpose, and commended them for their help to the people of SVG during these challenging times.
