Courts (Unicomer Trinidad Limited) graciously contributed on Firday, three Juicers to the Scleroderma Care Foundation. In a statement by Foundation Vice-President, Susan Le Gendre, "Juicing fresh fruits and vegetables is the best way to obtain maximum nutrition. When someone finds themselves faced with the dilemma of battling a rare, complexed disease like Scleroderma, juicing can provide excellent help toward feeling and doing much better."

Mrs. Le Gendre went on to add that "Our program at the Scleroderma Care Foundation, encourages patients to embrace healthier diets and by extension, lifestyles. Courts Trinidad Ltd has graciously donated three juicers, which would indeed benefit members of our support group. We continue on our quest to improve the lives of persons within Trinidad and Tobago who are afflicted with Scleroderma."

The Juicers, received on behalf of the Foundation by Tova Lin Bartholomew (former Miss Trinidad and Tobago 2009 delegate), would be presented to three patients at the Foundation's upcoming First Annual Christmas Dinner, this December. The Foundation would like to thank Courts for their contribution, and do look forward to their continued support in the future.

We would also like to thank Tova Lin for her assistance in making this presentation possible.
