St. Maarten – The New Era Foundation donated six standing fans to the St. Maarten Home on Monday. The presentation was made by the foundation’s public relations officer Jeffrey Richardson.
Richardson was first approached the need for the fans on Senior Citizens Day. The home’s management informed him then that the seniors had a hard time sleeping at night because their rooms are warm. He immediately committed to helping and has now delivered the fans.
“The New Era Foundation found it very imperative to heed to the call of the citizens by presenting them with a half a dozen of standing fans to put in six rooms so that we can have an additional six seniors that will now be sleeping in a room with the necessary ventilation to make their rooms cooler so they can rest and sleep much more comfortable. We should do whatever it takes to make the lives of our seniors as comfortable as possible,” Richardson said.
The foundation board member also used the delivery to call on government and each citizen to play a role in assisting the country’s seniors.
“The seniors are depending on you and I to play our role so that they would be able to benefit from the treasures they have already stored up in the past. Their pension should be addressed properly, their doctor cards should be indefinite without an expiration date, the cost of living should be affordable and every other benefit should be put in place in order for them to live a life without having to worry about how they would be able to survive during the latter part of their lives,” Richardson added.
