The School for Blind Chil­dren and the Autis­tic So­ci­ety of Trinidad and To­ba­go both re­cent­ly got a help­ing hand with im­prov­ing con­di­tions at their fa­cil­i­ties, from sev­er­al Flow Trinidad em­ploy­ees dur­ing the com­pa­ny’s an­nu­al “Mis­sion Week” event.

A re­lease from Flow ex­plains that all Flow sis­ter com­pa­nies across the Caribbean and Latin Amer­i­can were in­volved in “Mis­sion Week” ac­tiv­i­ties in their re­spec­tive coun­tries. This year, some 80 Flow Trinidad team mem­bers of­fered prac­ti­cal sup­port to in­sti­tu­tions that pro­vide learn­ing spaces for chil­dren with dis­abil­i­ties.

“Against the back­drop of the COVID-19 pan­dem­ic, Flow as­sist­ed to en­sure clean work and learn­ing spaces at the re­spec­tive in­sti­tu­tions,” the Flow re­lease said

The School for Blind Chil­dren, which was re­lo­cat­ed to Five Rivers in 2018, re­ceived as­sis­tance with deep clean­ing, san­i­tiz­ing and paint­ing of the build­ing; while the Autis­tic So­ci­ety had help get­ting its Re­source Room at the D’Abadie cen­tre prop­er­ly arranged

“The clean­ing and san­i­tiz­ing couldn’t have come at a bet­ter time. Flow has helped us do some paint­ing of the Prin­ci­pal’s of­fice and the class­rooms with spe­cial an­ti-fun­gal paint. That would as­sist in beat­ing the mould is­sue we have here,” said Der­rick Mundy, Prin­ci­pal at the School for Blind Chil­dren

Flow is a win­ner by pro­vid­ing ac­ces­si­bil­i­ty to ed­u­ca­tion via com­mu­ni­ca­tion, health and safe­ty for our chil­dren with vi­su­al im­pair­ment,” he added

The Autis­tic So­ci­ety is lo­cat­ed on one acre of Tes­trail Lands, which was do­nat­ed by the Landown­ing fam­i­ly in 2008. The Flow team cleared the room of the wood­en pan­el­ing and shelv­ing, re­paint­ed the en­tire room, and in­stalled new shelves in its place
