Guardian Life charity admirable

THE EDITOR, Sir:

I write in response to a letter from Dr Jephthah Ford, published Tuesday, August 19, 2015, urging Guardian Life to provide water tanks to schools.

In May 2015, in response to my request as member of parliament and in anticipation of the challenging drought conditions, Guardian Life provided 10 water tanks for schools in my constituency.

The insurance company also provided an additional five water tanks for schools in west Kingston.

Just Wednesday morning, at the Office of the Commissioner of Police, Guardian made a donation of 12 water tanks to police stations in the Corporate Area. They were initially responding to a request from me for five water tanks for police stations in my constituency, but decided to donate an additional seven to other stations.

Through its actions, Guardian Life has demonstrated that it is, indeed, good corporate citizen.
