Add the Barbados Red Cross Society’s Meals on Wheels Programme to the list of humanitarian efforts that are being hard hit as a result of the tough economic times.
But the dwindling donations will not stop the Red Cross Society from feeding those who depend on it for daily sustenance, its president Winston Waithe declared on Saturday.
Waithe was speaking to the Sunday Sun as the humanitarian organisation hosted a community engagement and accountability sensitisation workshop at Ten Habitat, Carlisle House, on Hincks Street, the City.
He revealed that the Meals on Wheels programme, which moves off from its Warrens headquarters daily, caters every week to between 450 to 500 less fortunate people or those who are shut in. In fact, Waithe called it the Barbados Red Cross Society’s “signature programme”. (HLE)
