The Barbados Defence Force (BDF) is playing a major role in Government’s COVID-19 relief programme, which aims to distribute 60 000 care packages to the vulnerable.

The care packages consist of dry goods, canned items, toiletries and other necessities as well as the fresh fruits and vegetables being supplied by the Barbados Agricultural Development & Marketing Corporation (BADMC).

Yesterday, BDF Headquarters confirmed in a release that the packages were being assembled at St Ann’s Fort, the Garrison, St Michael.

The Defence Force is working “with several Government ministries, private sector companies and non-profit organisations” to get these supplies packed and distributed to the vulnerable households across the island” the release said. (SB)
