The SATT said the food drive will be conducted for one month at the Caura and Couva Health Facilities where front line healthcare staff is working with COVID-19 infected persons.
“It is time for corporate T&T to step in to ensure that we recognise the sacrifices we must all make. At present, we recognise that our health and those who help maintain our well being is of utmost importance,” the statement said.
The SATT further saluted the healthcare workers who place their lives at risk.
“Those who barely get a break or a chance for a meal, those who leave their families for lengthy periods and those whose dedication and sacrifice comes into play especially at this time, keeping our friends and family members alive,” the release added.
The Supermarket Association added that March 30 is World Doctor's Day and offered thanks to the donors and people of Trinidad and Tobago by extension.
