More than 100 children from districts in St Thomas benefited from a back-to-school treat put on Lando Raverz, the CEO of Raverz Movements sound system at Prospect in the parish recently.

The children were from Port Morant, Lieth Hall and Prospect. "From I was very young I always had a vision of wanting to give back to the less fortunate whenever I find myself in that position to do so. As the CEO of Raverz Movements sound and the Raverz Movement Foundation I think it was my duty to give back a little of what I make in the parish," he said, adding that he received a little help from generous sponsors.

During the treat children received school supplies, including shoes. They were also treated to music, bounce-a-bout, snow cones, pop corn and ice-cream. The look on the faces of these youngsters told the whole story that it was well appreciated.

Lando said plenty people in the parish are in need of help and called on other stakeholders to step up to the plate. "I see the needs of kids especially at the basic and primary level. They can't go to school or they go to school with very little resources. They really need the assistance," he said.
