Philipsburg – On June 4th, 2020 The Windward Islands Bank Ltd. (WIB), made a donation of NAF 110,000.00 to the Rotary Club of Sint Maarten to support them in their mission to provide food to the needy within our communities.

The Rotary plans to provide food baskets, clean water & essential items to those in need and to support various school meals programs when schools restart.

WIB is very much aware of the devastating impact of COVID-19 on our economy and realizes that help from Corporate Sint Maarten is needed to mitigate the effects. “In the upcoming months, much consideration must be given to the wellbeing of our citizens, especially the seniors and children. We cannot allow that people are going to bed hungry. WIB is therefore motivated and happy to provide ongoing support to our community in times of crisis,” stated WIB’s General Managing Director Mr. Derek Downes.
