Help and Shelter hosting `Salute to Mothers’
Kaieteur News – June 21st 2007
Help and Shelter will be hosting its annual “Salute to Mothers” Garden Party on the lawns of the Georgetown Club, Camp Street on Sunday between 3.30 pm to 6.30 pm.
In addition to this fundraising activity, at around 6.15 pm on Sunday Help and Shelter will receive donations from Nadia Jagan of the Let’s Dance Studio and Kayleigh Burgess of The Charity Shop.
A statement from Help and Shelter said that while it receives funding from a variety of sources its “needs are great and the crucial financial gap continues to widen each year”.
It noted that 12 years ago a group of concerned citizens came together and vowed that no-one in danger of being abused should ever be alone and without refuge.
“Today we see the results of their vision; a shelter for abused women and their children and a crisis centre where anyone, male or female who is a victim” can be helped.
