Chairman of Special Olympics St. Vincent and the Grenadines (SOSVG), Errol Allen has praised telecommunications company FLOW for their recent donation of a computer to SOSVG.

Speaking during the handing over ceremony this week, Allen noted that SOSVG is in the process of further growing the organisation and, as a result, a Peace Corp volunteer will be joining the team soon.

“This equipment comes at the right time because we had to provide office equipment for that person,” stressed Allen who said that they are very grateful for the Dell OptiPlex 3040 personal computer.

Also present at the handing over were Special Needs Athlete (Bocce and Track and Field) Laverne Allick and National Director, SOSVG Sezevra Joseph.

“It’s always good when the community can get together,” said Joseph of the donation while adding that the SOSVG initiative is of great importance because “athletes get more exposure and can interact better with persons because of involvement with Special Olympics activities”.

She added that the activities are focused on taking the message to Vincentians as there still is stigma around persons with intellectual disabilities so when FLOW supports an initiative like this it is a show of great corporate responsibility.

Allick thanked FLOW on behalf of the other athletes.
