Community Pebbles Soup – Trinidad and Tobago

Community Pebble Soup is registered as a Not-For-Profit Company under the Laws of Trinidad and Tobago. At present, CPS’s prime focus is, and has been, on providing Food Bags and Christmas Gifts to families in various geographic areas in TnT. CPS have developed relationships with various active Social Workers and through this relationship the families in need can get direct service. Thankfully, with the assistance of the Social Worker assigned to the area CPS select, CPS schedule visit, and with the Social Worker aid of support, CPS try to bring some Light and Joy to those families.

As an organization, CPS have been hosting a Christmas Project for 3 years, but the members of CPS have been doing this for the last 7 years. CPS acknowledge that there are many other Groups and Organizations that provide similar service, but CPS choose to work directly with the families identified and, although CPS have re-visited some locations, they try to move to new locations each year.

CPS also provides Food Bags to each family served which are tailored to the family need. CPS take into consideration the family size, the ages, genders and sometimes disability need.  CPS also help families in need through donation by sourcing clothing, furniture such as beds, etc.

Hello Ms. Forbes: Thank you very kindly for so much that you did to enable me to get a renewed T&T passport. Could you convey to each of the Embassy staff my sincerest gratitude and heartfelt wishes as they continue such a valuable service. Thanks for being a contact person for me as I seek to support the children of our country. I will contact you as soon as I get there. Thanks again.

Good morning Joan, Words alone cannot express my thanks to both you and Lloyd for your generosity, kindness and sheer willingness to do whatever it took to ensure that our outreach visit to California and LA in particular was a success. It was my first time there and everything that Stanley, Roxanne, Nyasha and Mrs. Bartholomew told me to expect from you turned out to be even more than I expected. Both you and Lloyd are certainly unique in a country where it’s all about self and any service that is provided must be paid for. I suspect though that you will be well rewarded in the future. So on behalf of the Embassy and Ms. Henry many thanks for your gracious support and for myself I want to say that without you and Lloyd it could not happen. You are indeed one of a kind. Kindest regards.
