Women Entrepreneurs of Barbados
7 September 2004
TO WHOM IT MATTERS:
The Women Entrepreneurs of Barbados give praise and thanksgiving
to The Father, for having been spared the major ravages of Hurricane Ivan.
However, our Sistren in the Island of Grenada need help in rebuilding
their lives, communities and their country; as members of the Caribbean
Association of Women Entrepreneurs, we are responding with a call to the
wider community for individual household assistance for the People of
To make the effort most efficient, and for ease of handling by relief
workers to store and distribute, we recommend that boxes are packed based
on needs for Male & Female Adult, Male & Female Children. Boxes
should be labelled, on OUTSIDE accordingly (ie. MALE, ADULT, SIZE, AGE)
and lightly taped for custom /security inspection. We recommend you focus
on what you might require should you find yourself in a similar position
and pack a sized box accordingly.
The box should be of a size comfortable to carry by an individual or child,
and contain essentials for immediate needs. We do not recommend placing
money in the boxes due to the possibility of boxes going astray, but a
list of what is included and perhaps a personal note of encouragement
should be placed in an envelope and put INTO the carry-bag or knapsack,
which is then placed into the box to protect contents .
The list enclosed contains immediate requirements but whatever is considered
useful, and not on the list, may be included. HELP GRENADA RADIOTHON will
be aired on STARCOM Network on September 11, from 8 am to 12 noon, where
monetary donations will be accepted. E-mail email@example.com
or donations can be sent to First Caribbean Bank AC# 2645374.
To whom much is given, much is expected and we are above all, our brother’s
keeper. Boxes may be delivered to the below address for airlift facilitation;
please call to facilitate delivery. We thank you and may God bless you
for your kind assistance.
