On Nov. 11th while in St. Lucia, Noordam donated 15 large metal garbage bins and six large boxes of used clothing and two boxes of food containers to the Holy Family Children’s Home. The facility, opened in 1997, provides a secure and loving home for 24 children under the age of ten and is run by the Archdiocese of Castries.

Later that week, in Dominica, Noordam donated five boxes of used clothes from crew members and two boxes of food containers provided by the Culinary Department to a Children’s Foster Home that currently provides care to 73 children. The home depends on government assistance, community support and donations in order to provide for the children.
