AT&T Wireless donates to USAID

The handing over was done at the office of the National Youth Council (NYC) at Frenches. The computer will be used by the HIV/AIDS Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) Network in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
Stevenson described the handing over of the computer as symbolic. He noted that over 1000 computers will be given away throughout the region by AT&T Wireless.
Also present at the handing over were Kingsley Duncan, vice president of the HIV/AIDS NGO Network, Secretary/PRO of the Network Inez Cuffy and Treasurer Fr. Alric Skeritt.
A number of other NGOs were present and took part in a short interactive discussion based on AIDS/HIV.
AT&T Wireless also took the opportunity to hand over a cheque for EC$1000 to Earl “Old George” Daniel who last month walked for over 72 hours (three days) without sleep, between Chateaubelair and Georgetown and back, passing through capital Kingstown, in an attempt to raise funds for persons suffering with the dreaded pandemic. The money will be given to the HIV/AIDS Network. Daniel, however, said that he was disappointed with the response from the business sector.
