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.
