President and PM share out Special Christmas meals

In an effort to spread the Christmas spirit to all, His Excellency Dr. Mohamed Irfaan Ali along with Prime Minister, Hon. Brigadier (ret’d) Mark Phillips spent several hours, this morning, sharing Special Christmas meals to the needy.

The Senior Government officials were joined by Minister within the Office of the Prime Minister, Hon Kwame McCoy, staff of the Office of the President and other Government officials for the meal distribution exercise, which took them along several streets of Georgetown.

Persons without homes or those just in need accepted the meals with blessings and thanks.

For most, Christmas is the time when families join together to share a specially prepared meal, but for many, it’s just another day without shelter, warm clothing or food.

The Head of State recognised this, and in the spirit of giving and providing to the less fortunate, he organised the event, which saw the distribution of hundreds of meals and beverages.

The event started at State House where President Ali and other Government officials warmly greeted a gathering before offering them meals. The team then journeyed to Bourda Market and other areas, where they distributed even more meals to smiling recipients.
