Members of the Rotaract Club of Roseau continue their commitment to the community when the club presented food items to 77-year-old Celestine Brumant of Fond Cole on Saturday, January 22, 2011.
Brumant, who resides alone, is blind and is unable to move around expressed his gratitude for the donation and thanked the club immensely.
Roseau City Council representative Lucy Belle-Matthew was on hand to witness the presentation and remarked that, “It is important and encouraging to see young people involved in community service while providing service especially to the elder persons of our society. She encourages the club to continue the good work and never hesitate to provide assist where needed”.
The club adopted an elderly man for over five years in the community of Dubique. Since then he has passed on and was taken care of until his final rest.
The club is presently deciding on selecting another elderly person to be adopted by the club.
