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
