NASSAU, BAHAMAS — The Royal Bahamas Defence Force (RBDF) made a monetary donation to the Disability Affairs Division, Collins Avenue, recently, “in enforcing [a] strategic objective of strengthening relationships with stakeholders and the community at large as a socially corporate citizen”.
The presentation was made to members of the Kendrick Rolle Management (KRM) Group.
“This effort, known as a White Cane Initiative, will assist in the purchasing of walking canes for the blind in the communities of New Providence and Eleuthera,” read an RBDF statement.
The force also noted, “The month of October is an international observance month to celebrate the achievements of people who are blind or visually impaired, with the white cane symbolizing the importance of blindness and a tool of independence.
