St Vincent De Paul (Augier chapter) has made a generous donation to the Rainbow Children’s Home in Vieux-Fort.

The donation of a number of groceries was made at the home on Saturday, January 31, 2020.

In making the donation to the home, located at Aupicon, Vieux-Fort, president of St Vincent De Paul Society, Anthony Bellas said his organization is very pleased to make the donation.

“It’s all in the spirit of giving…We have received, and we have given,” Bellas said.

He said over the years, they have been taking care of the sick and elderly, but this year they have decided to broaden their scope and take care of the underprivileged children at the Rainbow Children’s Home in Vieux-Fort.

“This will not be our last presentation. We will have more presentations throughout the year,” Bellas said.

He told the home that they can call his organization for assistance during times of crises.

Manager of the Home, Sandra Faustin, thanked St Vincent De Paul for its generosity, adding that the donation will go a long way in assisting the home, which is facing a number of challenges.

Faustin said she is happy that the public is showing interest in the home. “It’s nice to know people care for us. We appreciate it very much,” Faustin said.
