The Basic Needs Trust Fund will officially hand over the keys to the renovated Clare Valley Clinic to the Ministry of Health, Wellness and the Environment, at a ceremony to take place in Clare Valley today.

The renovation was designed and supervised by Gleans Engineering and the construction work undertaken by Cyril Jack Construction.
Prime Minister Dr. Ralph Gonsalves will deliver the feature address at today’s official hand-over ceremony.
The ceremony will also be addressed by Minster of Health Clayton Burgin.
It begins at 2pm and will be broadcast live on NBC Radio
