Clear Harbour Cares comes to the aid of GNCRC

By Linda Straker

THE charity arm of a corporate citizen has come to the assistance of the Grenada National Coalition on the Rights of the Child (GNCRC) following a robbery at its office, which left the small staff unable to operate.

On Monday, March 24, the staff discovered that the office was broken into and the two computers with sensitive information about children and activities of the Coalition were stolen. The Police were called and the investigation is still ongoing.

Ann Greaves, Chairperson of the Coalition, said that the robbery had left the office virtually unable to function and made a plea for the corporate body or an individual to donate a system.

“We are very happy to report that the charity arm of Clear Harbour, which is called Clear Harbour Cares, has come to our assistance and on Tuesday presented us with two systems,” said Greaves, who admitted that the offer to assist came after Mr. Gary Bethel, who is a freelance Computer Programmer with Clear Harbour, read about the incident.

Programme Manager, Michael Hutchinson, and Financial and Administrative Generalist, Kahmala Campbell, in the presence of Bethel, handed over the two computer systems to Greaves during a press conference on Tuesday morning.

The press conference was held to inform the media about the activities which the Coalition will be undertaking as it observes April as Child Abuse Prevention and Awareness Month.

The theme for the month of activities is “Empowering Families and Communities to Keep Children Safe”. The main activity for the month will be a paediatrics health care at the Westerhall Health Centre towards the end of the month. There will also be presentations to primary and secondary schools, educating students about the various forms of abuse, as well as discussions on radio and television speaking about the scourge in the society affecting children.

  1. I'm puzzled with lots of exercises. I was afraid I could not do the right time despite my hard work. I need a support person.
