Capital Markets Elite hands over hampers to TTPS for the vulnerable

Capital Markets Elite Group Limited presented hampers on Tuesday to the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) through the I Support Our Service Secretariat (ISOS) initiative to assist vulnerable persons in Trinidad and Tobago.

Arising out of the partnership with CMEGL, the TTPS will be assisting 500 families across the nation via the TTPS’s Victim and Witness Support Unit and the Salvation Army as well as other units of the TTPS. The presentation was made today at West Bees Supermarket, West Bees Plaza, Diego Martin.

These hampers will go to persons mostly affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Ms. Christine Forde, Victim and Witness Support Officer, expressed gratitude for the hampers. She said the hampers will go a long way in assisting the Unit in their drive to feed those adversely affected by crime and criminal activities. This is the second year that the Unit is undertaking such a task, which was born out of the need to assist victims of crime across all nine policing divisions. The distribution would commence on Friday 18th December, 2020 and will run over a four-day period.

Fidaliance Leandre, Divisional Leader at The Salvation Army, heaped praises for the generosity of corporate Trinidad, as his organization celebrates 119 years of serving persons in society who are less fortunate.

He explained that the Salvation Army has already started its distribution process and to date has already given out 1000 hampers.
WPC Keisha Duke, of the ISOS Secretariat, was on hand to receive the hampers on behalf of the TTPS.
