It was in keeping with the season of giving when the Ministry of Transport, Works, Urban Development and Local Government made a much-needed donation to a local day nursery and children’s home last week.{{more}}

Last Thursday, December 23, members of staff of the Ministry handed over a cheque valued at $300 to the St. Benedict’s Day Nursery and Children’s Home.

Sister Nyra-Anne Pajotte, who has worked at the children’s home for the past eight years, received the timely sum and expressed her gratitude for the donation.

“Every cent counts,” she affirmed. “We are very grateful to have this contribution!”

Sister Pajotte said that the 40-year-old children’s home, which currently houses five children, is in dire need of repair.

“We’ve stopped admitting because of the condition of the home,” she explained.

Sister Pajotte added that she was also appreciative to the Government and Mustique Company.

Both made donations to the Georgetown-based children’s home after it suffered structural damage during the passage of Hurricane Tomas in October.(JV)
