“Despite the many challenges we faced, God came through for us in a very big way,” Dr. Irish-Morris told Caribbean Life, in an exclusive interview, about UVCGB’s 5th biennial mission, from Jul. 13-17. “We were united in every way.”

Dr. Irish-Morris said the group distributed medical supplies and clothing to Belair, Campden Park, Canouan, Sandy Bay, Calliaqua and Mesopotamia clinics; the Chateaubelair Hospital; the Dispensary at the Milton Cato Memorial Hospital in capital Kingstown; and the Lewis Punnett Home for the aged and indigent, among others.

She said UVCGB and other volunteers also conducted health fairs in collaboration with the Retired Nurses’ Association of St. Vincent and the Grenadines, in Kingstown.

While on the mission, Dr. Irish-Morris said members, most of whom worship at Miracle Temple Ministries, an evangelical church in the Brownsville section of Brooklyn, attended and participated in Worship Services at the 11th Hour Ministries in Byera, in South Central Windward, and Mesopotamia, in the Marriaqua Valley, on mainland St. Vincent.
