** 

I’m certain a lot of our local heroes aka frontliners would appreciate all the help we can get right now, in all this that’s happening. Things are really getting tougher by the day, and we’re glad that more and more people are trying their best to help out the best way they know-how.

We hope this helps those who are living a little far from the hospitals or clinics they work in. Because for sure you would need as much rest as you can after a long hard day of trying your best to help others. 

Do follow the Office of the Vice-President’s Facebook Page for more updates and information on any services you would like to take advantage of. We hope you stay healthy and stay safe!
