Redroot SVG, a non-governmental organisation dedicated to the empowerment and support of women and children who are victims of violence, inequality, and sexual abuse in St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SVG), has hosted its first Christmas campaign.
Dubbed, “Gift of Hope”, the campaign, done in collaboration with the Building and Loan Association ( BLA) involved the provision of
Christmas gifts including groceries, toys, and drinks to approximately three hundred homes across St Vincent to individuals and families who were in need of hope and support for the Christmas season.
In a release, the organisation said members of both organisations travelled to communities from Fancy to Chateaubelair on December 22-23, and on the 24th December, 2021 persons from around the Kingstown area went to their offices at Pauls Avenue to collect their gift packages.
“Our people have gone through a tremendous amount of troubles in the year 2021, therefore, we intended to lift their spirit, [and]spread good cheer,” the organisations release said.
“The joy that this campaign brought the children and adults was heart-warming, some of them didn’t expect a gift at Christmas and we were happy to be a part of that joy.
“We wish to thank the donors and the persons who contributed in any way to make this a success,”the release added.
The mission of Redroot SVG is rooted in the value of Healing, Educating, Promoting Equality, Justice, and Trust
