THREE INTERNATIONAL supermodels have thrown their support behind a local charity that assists people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS and are using their celebrity status to draw more financial assistance.

Jourdan Dunn, Sessilee Lopez and Sigail Currie, who arrived in Barbados last Sunday and depart today, are supporting the HIV/AIDS Food Bank.

They were brought in under the Celebrity Cultural Tourism Initiative, a project spearheaded by Crop Over band Fantasy Barbados, which last year hosted Hollywood actor Columbus Short.

Addressing a welcome party for the celebrities Tuesday night at the Usain Bolt Sports Complex, band director Amanda Reifer said the supermodels were primarily here to support the charity as well as to enjoy Crop Over celebrations.
