NGOs, religious organisations and regional bodies are among several entities to benefit soon from a substantial donation by the Victor & Sally Mouttet Foundation, to assist in social support efforts during the COVID-19 crisis.
According to an official statement from the Foundation’s publicist—Valdez & Torry International—a total of $3 million dollars will be provided to assist those most in need.
Some $2 million worth of food products will go to various civil society bodies, to help them reach the most vulnerable in this country.
Meanwhile, $1 million dollars in food and emergency grants will be channelled towards the Foundation’s contributing partners’ employees who have been displaced by the coronavirus crisis.
The $3 million donation is intended to be part of the national response to the hardship being experienced by many families and individuals in Trinidad and Tobago due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Contributing partners to the Foundation include Agostini’s Limited, Prestige Holdings Limited and Victor E. Mouttet Limited.
