The Halo Foundation has donated $76,546.00  to Antigua Street Pastors.

The sum was raised at Halo’s Wings of Charity fundraiser which is held each June in London.

H.E. Lady Williams made the presentation to Barry Sebastian, the coordinator of the Street Pastors.

“We make it our priority to attempt to improve the conditions of the charities under our patronage”, she said.

“The Street Pastors do their best to help the homeless and destitute on the streets of St.John’s, but their resources are seriously constrained . We hope that this contribution can assist the organisation to make an even more meaningful impact.”

Street Pastors was pioneered in London in 2003 by Antiguan and Barbudan national, Reverend Les Isaac, OBE. Its purpose is to “provide a Christian presence on the streets in local communities in order to listen, care and help”.

In addition to the United Kingdom, where there are over 9,000 trained volunteers, international branches operate in Antigua and Barbuda, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, USA, Nigeria, Ireland, Gibraltar, the Channel Islands and Australia.
