Extracted from the Facebook timeline of Andrew Simpson. With all the ‘noise’ in our society citizens like Andrew who day in and day out do their part to make Barbados a better place are often not noticed. Here is one project he is working to help a family in dire need. Good job Andrew!

Facebook and word of mouth appeals for donations toward improving the living conditions of the Selman/Hackett family have been kindly answered by Foster & Ince, workmates at Aqua-loc Corporation, members of The Living Room Church, Envirotech Inc (proceeds from sale of Miracle Mix), family, friends and neighbours. They have been temporarily relocated to more adequate premises and all funds collected to date have been utilized to pay rent and carry out renovations. Furniture, appliances, bedding, etc. donated by a host of caring citizens has been transported by Unique Aluminum and Canvas Awnings Ltd at concessionary prices. Chickmont Foods has issued vouchers for chicken and eggs.
Repairs, including an additional three bedrooms and bathroom are underway. Most materials needed for foundations, timber structure (including partitions) and roofing have been donated by Carter’s General Stores, Ready Block, Superior Lumber, Marshall Trading, Ace H & B, Barbados Lumber Company, Tuleja Lumber, BRC, Builder’s Value Mart and Barbados Steelworks.
Response has been encouraging over the last four weeks, with adequate flow of materials and money, but the project is now at the stage where roofing is being completed and flooring, siding and ceilings are required. “Damaged’ materials have been identified at discounted prices but cash is needed to purchase and install. Then for doors, windows, electrical, plumbing and painting.
Please call 437-8188, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or Facebook Andrew Simpson with any offers of assistance.We need to get the family back in their home by next month.
Thank you Lord for provision, through your saints. Amen.
