Head of Monitoring and Evaluation at the Ministry of National Mobilization Merissa Burke noted that the furniture will make the women and children housed at the Crisis Centre more comfortable and expressed gratitude to the Canouan Resort Development Holding Limited for the assistance.

The Ministry of National Mobilization, Social Development, the Family, Persons with Disabilities and Youth is responsible for the Crisis Centre, which is a new facility open to women and their children who have been exposed to domestic violence and are seeking a safe and temporary home.

The Crisis Centre was established on April 16, 2012.
