Warrior Nation's Joann Charles makes the presentation to one of the house mothers


Started by Albertina Phillip over 20 years ago in her own home on Market St. in Couva, Phillip's Children Home provides a safe haven for abandoned kids. The home was moved to Camden Road about 11 years ago when a new structure was built by the National Gas Company of Trinidad & Tobago (NGC). Olympic gold medalist Hasely Crawford was instrumental in getting NGC involved. The Home does not receive any assistance from the Government and relies on NGC employees and the general public for support.



This year the Warrior Nation decided to donate the proceeds of our 2008 Holiday Food Drive to the children of Phillip's Home, and we feel good that we have been able to assist in putting smiles on the little ones faces. The home currently houses 21 children, but has a capacity for 26.
