The Dominica Cricket Association on Wednesday donated hampers to twelve young cricketers who have been significantly impacted by the ongoing coronavirus.
The donations were partly sponsored by Fine Foods Inc, members of the DCA and Senior National Cricketers to include Kavem Hodge, Alick Athanaze, and Tyrone Theophile.
President of the Dominica Cricket Association, Glen Joseph said “we are proud to give away these food hampers to a minimum of twelve recipients.”
These recipients were selected by virtue of need with a further twelve to be selected. “So this is the first twelve and we will be moving to another twelve, and another until we cover everybody. “So, having said this, we are asking persons out there to form part of this vision and be a part of what we’re doing,” President of the DCA remarked.
Senior National Cricketer and Windward Island Volcanoes batsman, Kavem Hodge commended the CA for this gesture to the less fortunate cricketers across Dominica.
“It’s a time like this everybody have to help somebody…help one, teach one,” Hodge said. He added, “We all know COVID-19 is a difficult time for each and everyone and obviously cricket and sports on a whole is something that brings people together and I’m really pleased to see the DCA taking a step in the right direction.”
Meanwhile, one of the recipients, under-19 cricketer, Delaney Alexander simply thanked the Cricket Association for the kind gesture towards him and other players.
