Single acts of kindness

THE EDITOR, Sir:

I would love to use this opportunity to applaud the group of soldiers who, while doing their duty during the state of emergency in the St Andrew South Division, organised to feed a couple of the homeless persons in the area. It was brought to my attention on Facebook when I saw Private Romario Walcott distributing food packages to a homeless man.

I do hope that such an example can be imitated by those of us who are members of the private sector. Without a doubt, many more companies, irrespective of their size, can cater for those people in the vicinity of our businesses. One hot meal per day will keep the hunger away. Kudos to the soldiers who have continued to make an impact wherever they go!
