Feeding projects ‘being abused’
FEEDING PROGRAMMES for the needy need to be better targeted because they are being abused, the chairman of the Barbados Vagrants and Homeless Society (BVHS) Kemar Saffrey said yesterday.
Speaking at Queen’s Park where the BVHS and the Love Day Project Group hosted Love Day, Saffrey said several programmes were now being overtaken by people who were gainfully employed.
He said that his organization was planning a meeting of providers in the new year to look at the issue of better coordination.
“Too many persons are not in need of the food that is going out there,”?he said.
