Spreading love in the park
THE BARBADOS VAGRANTS AND HOMELESS SOCIETY (BVHS) has reported that its second annual Christmas feeding in The City was a success.
The society’s president and founder Kemar Saffrey told the DAILY NATION yesterday he was pleased that over 50 pairs of shoes, a large quantity of clothes, free health checks and free meals were given to more than 120 homeless and vagrants who passed through Queen’s Park last Saturday.
“It was a very good and peaceful turnout. I want to thank all of those businesses and schools that would have contributed to Saturday. It was indeed a success and I am quite pleased.”
Saffrey said that the Christmas bliss stretched over to Sunday when members of the homeless community received free haircuts and grooming at Brothers Barbershop.
