“We have some chairs yes, but they are worn and damage and when we realized that we had some difficulties because we don’t want our seniors to be falling and getting hurt. So to avoid that, I sought the CPBL of Belize and the producers of Belize and when I sent the letter to them on behalf of the establishment here, I am very glad that they became our partners because these chairs are very important for us and the residents here. So we have to be their mouth, eyes and everything. And it is a joy that we have brand new chairs because if you look around, those that we have now are in bad, bad shape. So we are very grateful.”

“Our company is a company that always remembers our social obligation, even in bad times. And so when we got the letter, our Chief Financial Officer Mister Kent Herrera, decided to approve the donation for the Cecilia Home for the Elderly People. In the letter, Mister Adolphus stated the condition of the current chairs and so we realized the importance of getting these chairs for the elderly people.”

“In here we got ex-soldiers, we got ex-nurses, ex-teachers, ex-police men at this home and we cannot just ignore our seniors. It is voluntary for me, but I get a job when I see a smile and I will try my best, continue aggressing and become partners with our people out there because I need them…we need them.”
