Twenty less fortunate elderly women in West Berbice felt special on Saturday when officers from the Fort Wellington Police Station presented them with food hampers for Mother’s Day.

This exercise, which was part of an “outreach programme to give back to the community,” was done in collaboration with Commander of ‘B’ Division, Assistant Com-missioner, Brian Joseph and the Fort Wellington Station Management Com-mittee.

The officers, headed by Sergeant Cynthia Kelly distributed the hampers at Hopetown, including to the oldest woman, 99-year-old, Jamie Mc Almont and at Bath Settlement and Bush Lot.

The women were grateful for the gesture and some even became emotional that the officers had reached out to them to ensure they enjoyed their Mother’s Day.
