On Friday June 25, 2021, the St. Vincent and the Grenadines Red Cross handed over an assortment of equipment and cleaning agents to Superintendent of Prisons, Mr. Timothy Hazelwood in a brief handing over ceremony held at Her Majesty’s Prison (HMP).

According to the Superintendent Hazelwood, the donation was very timely, because it met some of the needs of the prisoners. He thanked the SVG Red Cross on behalf of the management and staff of the Prisons and by extension the inmates. Superintendent Hazelwood said that he looks forward to collaborating with the SVG Red Cross in the future on initiatives to positively impact the lives of the inmates and the environment at Her Majesty’s Prison and the Belle Isles Correctional facility.
