Dominica Council on Aging expresses thanks

Thanks-to-you-allThe Dominica Council On Ageing (DCOA) Inc., remains thankful to the Government of Dominica, its many affiliates, well-wishers, institutions, corporate citizens and Patrons for the invaluable assistance rendered to it during the course of the year 2014. Without the respective contributions in cash and kind that were meted out by the various patriots, the Council would not have been able to pursue its objective of bringing care, comfort and hope to the Elderly of the State through its advocacy work.

According to Mrs. Zetma Toussaint, President of the DCOA, “ At the dawn of the New Year, 2015, it is right to reflect on the past year and be thankful for the goodwill of the people of this land whose generosity continues to reflect our care for humanity and particularly for those who still enjoy the golden era of life.”  The President made that statement at the end of an island wide three-week tour with members of the DCOA Inc. visiting all the 29 centenarians on island.

During these visits the respective care-givers were complimented for the quality of care that were observed to have been given to the centenarians, all of whom were in high spirits and some still eager to engage in dialogue. On these visits the Council gave donations and presented a food hamper to all through the courtesy of Issa Trading Company Ltd., a gesture which this corporate entity has undertaken for the past three years.

The Council is aware of the challenges that lie ahead in the coming New Year and beyond but remains steadfast in its resolve to advocate on behalf of the elderly. It recognizes that there is more that needs to be done and call on all to do whatever, wherever and whenever possible, to assist in promoting the cause and registering the voices of the elderly in our communities.

The DCOA Inc takes this opportunity to wish all a blessed and prosperous new year.
