YWCA feeding more than 1 000 children
THE YOUNG WOMEN’S Christian Association (YWCA) is now catering to more than 1 000 children in its breakfast programme.
And president Andrea Taylor said the number of “new faces” was on the increase.
“Times are hard and the numbers of children are growing. Right now we are at 1 307 children in the programme and it continues to rise. We are faced with a situation where, every day we open our doors we are seeing new, fresh faces alongside faces which have been coming from the inception,” she said.
Taylor was speaking this morning as British Airways made a donation of food to the programme at the YWCA’s Deacons, St Michael headquarters.
She said the airline’s contribution would go a long way. (CA)
