St. George’s, Grenada, Friday January 19th, 2018 – The National Water and Sewerage Authority continued its support of less fortunate individuals by providing more than three dozen Grenadians with food hampers, ahead of Christmas 2017, as part of its ongoing promotion, which fits in to its corporate social responsibility.
A total of 40 hampers were distributed to individuals on mainland Grenada and the sister isles of Carriacou and Petite Martinique, during the week of December 18th through 22nd, as a means of bringing Christmas cheer individuals of lesser means.
Some of those receiving hampers, shared their joy on benefiting from this NAWASA promotion.
“I want to thank NAWASA for the kind gesture and I hope they continue to give to other families” said one recipient, who was overwhelmed with joy at being chosen. Another beneficiary noted “I’m glad for all that you all brought for me, because I need it…seeing me and seeing the house, that’s not all”. Yet another beneficiary welcomed the surprise, nothing “is first time anybody ever giving us something for Christmas”.
Into its fourteenth year, the NAWASA Christmas Food Hamper promotion was expanded in 2017 to benefit forty (40) beneficiaries, up from thirty-five (35). “That’s good you know, NAWASA looking out for the people in the community, so thanks a lot…”, announced an unsuspecting beneficiary.
The forty (40) beneficiaries, were nominated by individuals who, in most cases, looked beyond their own needs to ensure their friend or neighbor has a joyous Christmas. Communications Supervisor Jamila Samuel highlights that it is NAWASA’s way of giving back to those most in need. “You know every beneficiary, every smile, every hug, makes us feel happy that NAWASA made the right decision fourteen (14) years ago when it embarked on this promotion and that the recipients…are well deserving”.
