June 4 St. Johns Antigua: The Minister of Housing, Culture & Social Transformation, Hilson Baptiste, has pledged his support along with that of his Government in ensuring that the Amazing Grace Foundation is further developed.

Minister Baptiste was at the time speaking at a short appreciation ceremony for private sector businesses on Friday who have and are continuing to make worthwhile donation to the organization.

Minister Baptiste told the attendees that as “Minister of Social Transformation he was touched by what he has seen and is committed to helping the organization.”  He added that “he will definitely try to acquire what the home needs to enhance and better the lives of the residents, who are incapable of taking care of themselves.”
