“Two (2) months after starting our distribution in the Red and Orange Zones, the Mustique VERF Distribution Team is still going strong and with anticipated relief supplies still coming in, we are dedicated to distributing these supplies directly to those most in need. It has been fulfilling and well worth the effort when our Distribution Team goes into the villages and see first-hand the gratitude of the villagers who feel valued that Mustique is coming directly to them to provide their supplies. Most distribution days, we are reaching 150-250 villagers and Mustique VERF distribution continues to be implemented in a fair, objective and orderly manner and focuses on the most in need, the indigent and the disadvantaged with no discrimination. We have gone to all lengths to get to these people. We have been to villages where the villagers have thanked us profusely saying “God Bless Mustique because everyone else has overlooked us”.

– Dularie Malcolm, MCT Administration Director:
