ST. KITTS, NOVEMBER 29TH 2010 (CUOPM) – The Ministry of Health and Social Development is reporting that Christmas, the season of giving and good cheer, arrived early for the one hundred residents of the Cardin Home who enjoyed a sumptuous lunch prepared and served by the staff and proprietor of the Circus Grill, one of the leading bars and restaurants operating in the heart of Basseterre.
Mr. Joseph Jong, owner and proprietor of the family owned establishment disclosed that the gesture to prepare and serve the lunches to residents of the Cardin Home was his way of giving back to the community for patronising his business which is celebrating 15 years of operations.
Mr. Jong explained that he was very excited to have been afforded the opportunity to partner with the Ministry of Health. He said now that they had “seen the light,” he was committed to doing more and looked forward to working with the management and staff at the Cardin Home to make their lives more comfortable.
Mr. Jong’s sentiments were echoed by a senior member of his staff, Mr. Ellis Warner, who expressed the staff’s pleasure to serve the elderly and advised of their intention to volunteer their time by visiting the Home to assist in caring for the elderly residents, who were very appreciative for the kind gesture. Several members of staff accompanied Mr. Jong to the Cardin Home and participated in distributing the lunches to the residents.
The Permanent Secretary, Elvis Newton conveyed thanks on behalf of the Ministry and encouraged Mr. Jong to continue his partnership which will enable the health sector to better respond to the needs of the various groups of citizens which they serve.
