“It’s something I give back to the community. It’s something that I do from my heart, simple as that, very simple. Whether it’s the children’s home or it’s the old aged home in St. Kitts or Nevis, it’s an annual thing that we do every year. So I hope we continue to do this further on,” he said.
In response, a thankful Ms. Donna Hanley, Nurse Manager of the seniors facility expressed gratitude for the invaluable donation which will be used in the care of the home’s residents.

“For years now he has been donating valuable gifts to us. We are in the habit of utilising them well, and I would like to say thank you again, and we can sure use these items. Thank you, Dr. Ravi. Thank you to the dental clinic,” she said.
