BTC recently donated twenty-five mobile SIM cards with data services for a period of one year to assist the National Neighborhood Watch Council’s crime fighting efforts in the Mt. Moriah community. The community recently installed CCTV cameras to monitor the neighborhood.
BTC CEO, André Foster commented on the donation saying, “We were happy to support to the Mt. Moriah community. We are very impressed by the determination of this community to be their ‘brother’s keeper’ as they installed solar powered CCTV cameras to support crime prevention. We truly value our partnerships with our communities, and this is just one of many ways that we are giving back.”
On hand for the donation was the Member of Parliament for the Mt. Moriah Constituency, Marvin Dames who also serves as Minister of National Security. Minister Dames thanked BTC saying, “We’re grateful that BTC decided to come on board. The company has always been a tremendous corporate partner, and we are extremely elated. This donation will go a long way to helping to keep these communities safe.”
Keno Wong, Chairman of the National Neighborhood Watch Council said, “I think this is a great initiative and one of the main goals of our organization which comprises of over 167 neighborhood watch groups throughout the country is to partner with corporate Bahamas as we seek to combat crime in our communities. We are happy that BTC has come on board to support the Mt. Moriah community which includes Yellow Elder Gardens, Millennium Gardens and Stapeldon Gardens.” BTC hopes to expand this initiative and looks forward to partnering with other neighborhood crime watch associations in the near future.
