Recently, at Chefette’s corporate office, Public Relations Officer of the NHAC Fabian Todd, received the cheque from the local Restaurant Chain and said “The National HIV/AIDS Commission (NHAC), is extremely appreciative of the financial donation given by Chefette Restaurants. This cheque will be used to help clients infected with and affected by HIV. Chefette’s efforts are commendable especially during these challenging economic times.
My Director, Dr. Jacqueline Wiltshire commits to using the funds received here today to provide crucial prevention and care support for those coping with the illness. Partnerships such as the one forged with your company over a decade now, demonstrates a sense of civic national responsibility and is pivotal to the continuity of Barbados' National AIDS Programme.
The NHAC wishes your management, staff and their immediate families a prosperous holiday season.”
