Port of Spain, Trinidad. September 12th, 2020: Angostura® in its continued goal of supporting those in need has come across the story published in the Guardian newspaper and aired on CNC3 about the Boodram family from Wilson Road, Penal. 

The story of three siblings aged 11, 18 and 20 who are working tirelessly to build their own home has caused us to reflect on our responsibility to support those who are less fortunate. 

 As a corporate citizen, Angostura® understands the importance of giving back and helping those in need, not only in our fenceline community but also to those in the country as whole. 

Angostura® is proud to pledge its support to the Boodram family and will also be partnering with the Coosal’s Group of Companies to provide building materials for them. 

“Stories like that of the Boodram family really tug at your heart. We cannot imagine what it’s like for three siblings to have the task of building their own home at such a young age and especially while one of them is still in school. We believe that it is necessary to step in and help them. This is what Angostura is all about and we have demonstrated that as we have always been giving back to society and those in need.” 

Public Relations & Hospitality Manager, Judy Kanhai

Executive Chairman of the Coosal’s Group of Companies, Sieunarine Coosal said, “I am extremely happy to be a part of assisting this family because I think it’s a very deserving cause. I can identify with their needs and situation because this has touched me on a personal level. To whom much is given, much is expected.” 

Angostura® has spoken to the Boodram family and they have expressed their appreciation to both Angostura® and the Coosal’s Group of Companies for the support.
