LIME reaches out to shut-ins, disabled, less fortunate

A release from LIME said the programme began 12 years ago in 2000 and started off with fewer than 90 packages and was limited to a selected few persons on the windward side of the island, above the Dry River. Presently, this drive encompasses persons from every community throughout St Vincent and the Grenadines.

“From Fancy all the way down to Chateaubelair, LIME vehicles are loaded up with employees volunteering their time to this worthy cause,” the release said.

“God bless LIME” “Thank God for LIME” were some of the sentiments expressed by these senior citizens as they accepted the much needed food packages with gratitude.

One happy lady exclaimed: “You lucky I didn’t get chance to put in me teeth, is then you would ah see smile!”

Marketing manager Nikala Williams said “This continues to be a life changing experience for everyone who volunteers at LIME. Some of these persons are disabled, live alone and are sometimes hungry or in pain, but still have the ability to smile and give a bit of humour.”

Last Christmas, LIME shared 100 smiles with “Give a gift this Christmas” initiative, aimed at delivering gifts to less fortunate children.

“LIME looks forward to continue these initiatives in the New Year and identify opportunities to contribute towards the development of the people of St Vincent and the Grenadines,” the release said.
