Pastor Cyprian Joseph of the Crown Heights Gospel Church, who is originally from L’Esterre, Carriacou, along with member of the St Matthias Charity Robert McBonnet, thanked all those who have been instrumental in ensuring this gesture became a reality.
Joseph said that the items contributed were done in collaboration with District Doctor Tyron Davis, while McBonnet noted that the process of shipping and clearing the items was rather smooth compared to other countries.
McBonnet further stated that they are hoping to continue the relationship with the Princess Royal Hospital and the Top Hill Senior Citizens Home; and is expecting to return with a larger contribution in the form of a 40 ft container.
