NIA CHARLESTOWN NEVIS (October 05, 2015) — Coordinator of the Seniors Division in the Ministry of Social Development on Nevis Garcia Hendrickson, said although the Division is committed to caring for the island’s elderly, the Hot Meals Programme, one of several offered by the Division, can only be available for seniors who are in need.

 
Hendrickson, made the disclosure in a recent interview with the Department of Information. She acknowledged that all seniors could not be recipients because of the cost associated with the programme.
