first_imgASSISTANCE TO WIDOWS AND ORPHANS OF TOGOS / C Djinadou Moutiou 04BP 941Lome-Togo In order to help empower local women in Barbados, the U.S. Department of Defense’s Humanitarian Assistance Program recently donated funds for the Caribbean island’s Young Woman’s Christian Association (YWCA) through the U.S. Southern Command and the U.S. Embassy to the Caribbean. On 14 January, Mrs. Marquita Guillory, representing the U.S. 4th Fleet, officially handed over various goods to YWCA President Marilyn Rice-Bowen on behalf of a minimal cost humanitarian assistance project managed by Southcom. The funds were used to purchase equipment for the Sewing Project, a local initiative designed to give unemployed and underemployed women skills to help them become financially independent. Laurel Armstrong, coordinator of the Sewing Project was thankful for the support, stating: “The gratification is immediate because after each class they will see the success and reward”, she commented to The Barbados Advocate. The contributions included 16 commercial Singer sewing machines, computers, office supplies and other locally-purchased equipment that will be used to teach local women to sew marketable products. Lieutenant Colonel Edward Harvey, military liaison officer with the U.S. Embassy to the Eastern Caribbean said it was a “tough but enjoyable task to get the equipment together and present it to the YWCA”.
