As we recognise World AIDS Awareness Day on December 1st, Chefette Restaurants, is making sure that The National HIV/AIDS Commission (NHAC) will be better equipped to support persons living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.
Recently, at Chefette’s corporate office, NHAC Public Relations Officer Fabian Todd, received a cheque from the local restaurant chain and thanked Chefette Restaurants for yet another monetary donation. Mr. Todd said “We at the National HIV/AIDS Commission (NHAC) express gratitude to the management of Chefette Restaurants for continuing to honour this pledge to the NHAC. Even as Barbados continues to battle the COVID-19 pandemic, which would have most definitely affected Chefette’s revenue, your business has shown us that it remains committed to the HIV fight.
This Christmas will be no ordinary one but we are heartened to see that there are businesses like Chefette, who continue to go above and beyond to make the new normal as customary as possible. The NHAC sincerely thanks Chefette Restaurants on behalf of our clients and their families.”
Chefette also gave a generous donation to the HIV/AIDS Food Bank. Stacia Whittaker, Manager of the Food Bank expressed gratitude and said “On behalf of the recipients of the HIV food bank (HFB) I wish to thank Chefette Restaurants for their annual generous donation. The HFB is the only programme of its kind in Barbados and the immediate Caribbean territories for Persons Living with HIV (PLHIV). Our food bank provides a supplemental nutrition assistance program to eligible low-income households and PLHIV via our monthly hamper distributions. However, this year has been a challenging one as we endeavoured to provide food and nutrition support via our nutritionally balanced food hampers. Unfortunately, despite the demand our support has continued to dwindle. Thank you for your support, it means so very much to us.
Advertising Manager, Lisa Carter said “Our Company deems it a necessity to support these Charities at this time, especially now businesses are facing the challenges brought on by the Covid-19 Pandemic. Many HIV/AIDS individuals need all the help they can get so we are confident that the funds will go a long way in assisting those individuals.
