InterHealth Canada – Turks and Caicos Islands Hospital is happy to render assistance at such a vulnerable time. Tons of senior-friendly food were donated to restock the Mount Moriah Baptist Church Food Bank on Middle Caicos and assist elderly residents on the island following the passage of Category 5 Hurricane Irma in September.
Reverend Evans Williams of the local church is preparing to commence the food distribution to elderly residents in need.
InterHealth Canada graciously purchased boxes of non-perishable items and partnered with companies, Air & Sea Agency and Lew1 to provide logistics and shipping assistance, free of charge, prior the arrival of Hurricane Irma.
The church delivers food to seniors on a monthly basis across the island via the food bank. However, this was the first year the church struggled to restock their inventory in the midst of the Hurricane Season.
