    • The WLI, in collaboration with the NCB Foundation, spearheaded an appeal to the public to assist with the reconstruction efforts at Mustard Seed after Hurricane Gustav washed away one of the two-storey homes at Sophie’s Place in Gordon Town and badly damaged remaining houses. Even more unfortunate was the untimely passing of three children as a result of the trauma. Through this initiative, approx J$7 million in cash was raised for Mustard Seed, and many donations in kind.
