About Our Foundation

The Foundation for the Enhancement and Enrichment of Life (FEEL) is a registered charitable organization established in 1992. We are an umbrella Civil Society Organization (CSO) which distributes foodstuff, clothing, shoes, hygiene, medical, household, school and disaster relief supplies to our CSO partners and individuals across Trinidad and Tobago.

Since 1992 we have worked in communities to assist in the areas of poverty alleviation, disaster relief and recovery education and capacity building, and medical support.

We distribute foodstuff, clothing, shoes, hygiene, medical, household, school and disaster relief to other non-profits organisations working to assist individuals and families in communities across Trinidad and Tobago.

Non –profit organisations registered with FEEL include community and faith based organisations, children’s homes, institutions caring for the differently abled, homes for the elderly and other special purpose non-profits. Schools also receive assistance from FEEL under a special School’s programme.

We Have the Power to Impact Our Future, and We’re Doing Something About It

Since the COVID-19 pandemic reached the shores of Trinidad and Tobago, FEEL has distributed over TT$40 million in goods comprising 77,000 food hampers, donations of toiletries, cleaning products, hygiene supplies, clothes, shoes, medical supplies, hospital beds and much more. Up to the period ending September 30th, 2020, FEEL has distributed approximately 230,941 reusable face masks at the request of the Ministry of Health. And now, FEEL has is expanding its support to soup kitchens across the country. 

In 2019 FEELs work and service to the people of Trinidad and Tobago expanded through the growth in local and international partnerships.
