Dr. Munroe stressed that the cheque was just the beginning of the continuing support that the YMCA could expect to receive from the ‘Real Men’ ministry.
“I want to say and stress that this is just the first cheque,” he said. “We anticipate helping the YMCA on an ongoing basis with their work. They’re doing a very important work in our community and we are convinced as Real Men that if we strengthen the men in our country, if we restore the men in our nation, we will restore that community because the males are the foundation of the society. And if we can strengthen the foundation the building will stand strong.”
Karon Pinder- Johnson, Executive Director of the YMCA, expressed gratitude at the donation. The $5,000 donation is expected to go a long way.
“The YMCA is elated to be presented with this overwhelming $5,000,” she said, thanking the ‘Real Men’ on behalf of the organisation’s Board of Directors, management, staff and the children of Grand Bahama. Mrs. Johnson was joined by Board Chair, Daniel Williams, and member, June Henderson.
