LIME gives back to 200 persons

Two hundred persons were recipients of care packages from telecommunications provider LIME, in the company’s Christmas Outreach Programme, which took place last week, for the 13th consecutive year.{{more}}

On December 23, LIME staff members visited disabled persons, shut-ins, and the less fortunate on the island’s Windward and Leeward coasts, and distributed food, toiletries and other household items to the grateful individuals.

The staff members were greeted with “God bless LIME” and “thank God for LIME,” as they distributed the care packages in villages from Fancy all the way to Chateaubelair.

What started out as a programme with fewer than 90 packages in 2000, has now swollen over the years to a project which is highly anticipated by both persons in the communities and LIME staff.

LIME Marketing and Corporate Communications lead Nikala Williams said that the programme is one way in which the company demonstrates its understanding of its corporate responsibilities. The programme also brings staff and communities closer together outside of the work and business environment.

“This continues to be a life-changing experience for everyone who volunteers at LIME,” she said.

“Some of these persons are disabled, live alone and sometimes hungry or in pain, but still have the ability to smile, give God thanks and share a bit of humour.

“We at LIME are happy that we can make an impact in their lives and would endeavour to do so for as long as we can.”
