In his introductory remarks, Dr. Terrance Drew lauded the Minister for her contribution to women’s leadership, development and social protection towards the vulnerable groupings in the country.
The Minister expressed her gratitude to the organisation for recognizing the ministry’s role in helping the poor and vulnerable in the country.
