Policemen and WB Christian Nool, worshipful master, will troop to the rehabilitation center twice a week for the feeding program.
A schedule for both groups was crafted making every Wednesday of the week covered by the police and every Friday of the week covered by the Masonic Lodge.
The rehabilitation center caters to at least 30 children and being managed by the Local Government of Trinidad under the supervision and care of Municipal Social Welfare and Development Office.
The program is one activity being done by the local police to adhere to its social responsibility in helping for the development of some sector of the community who are less privileged by uplifting the nutrition program, which is a vital and integral part of social reform and economic development.
The program is geared toward uplifting the plight of children in the Valley starting with the children from rehabilitation center.
