BIBA gives back to youth

The Barbados International Business Association (BIBA) Charity, with the help of its members and the business community, gave back to the youth of Barbados during the festive season.

“The international business sector continually makes tangible contributions to the wider community, but at this time of year, we focus especially
on Barbados’ children,” said trustee of the Charity Louisa Lewis-Ward.

“While our larger effort to support Barbados’ public health care system continues, BIBA’s members know that giving to the ill or less fortunate remains in keeping with our mandate and makes Christmas for some that much brighter,” she added.

At the Association’s holiday party on December 15, members, strategic partners and other specially invited guests, donated toys and Cave Shepherd cash vouchers towards the charity’s initiatives.

On Thursday, December 21, the charity then made a donation to the teens at the Sterling Children’s Home.

Thanks to the complementary assistance from Cave Shepherd, each ward received a $100 Cave Shepherd cash voucher.

Later that day, the Charity also donated wrapped gifts to the young ones on the Children’s Ward at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
