Members of the Kiwanis Clubs of 23 West, which comprises 17 clubs from the parishes of St Catherine, Clarendon and Manchester, turned out at the 3D Projects facility along Monk Street in Spanish Town on November 13 to give it a face lift.

The members came out armed to work on the facility which houses children with autism and other illnesses. The building has been in a state of disrepair for some time.

They set about with forks, machetes and paint brushes and got down to work.

''We at Kiwanis believe that caring for the children is the way forward. Therefore, we are pleased to be here today. For too long, children who have been suffering from various illnesses have been ignored, so we are doing our part to make the lives of these children better,'' said Anthony Williams, lieutenant governor of 23 West.

In addition to the cleaning and repainting, the charity organisation also handed over bed linen, toiletries and food items.

Head of the 3D Projects, Gerlin Bean, told the group it was a timely intervention that was being made.

''The children we care for need all the love and support available, so we are very thankful to the Kiwanis Club for its continued support."
