Your Donations Make a HUGE Impact
Everyday, donations from FEEL reach someone in need in Trinidad & Tobago. Maintaining an operating cost of less than 1.2 million dollars, FEEL continues to grow its assistance to the most vulnerable. The numbers below show our annual donations in kind.
Founded in 1992 by Clive Pantin
When FEEL was conceptualized by our founder Mr. Clive Pantin back in the early 1990s it was determined that we should focus on four main areas of activity – disaster prevention and response, education and capacity building, medical support and poverty alleviation. As we survey the local landscape, it is clear that Mr. Pantin was a visionary who understood those issues that would provide the greatest challenge to a developing society.
It is with great pride therefore that we look back at the service that FEEL has provided to the disadvantaged and less fortunate members of our society since 1992. FEEL remains true to the vision of the founder and whilst our tactics have changed, we have grown and expanded our service to the population of our country under this umbrella.

Almighty and Eternal God
Gracious and loving, kind and compassionate
Full of beneficence to all your creatures
We ask you to look down with mercy upon our humble efforts
To enhance and enrich the lives of those human beings whom we have
pledged to serve.
Teach us O merciful Father,
To appreciate the tremendous value of every individual human being
But especially to see a sign of your own life reflected in the lives of our
disadvantaged brothers and sisters.
Guide us in all our deliberations and decisions,
So that we may always faithfully follow the way you wish us to go
For we are here not to do what we want, but your holy will at all times.
Help us, most merciful God,
To persevere when things go wrong,
And grant that we may be instruments of your Grace, your Peace and your
Love to many.
Give us Joy in our work, and enable us to bring comfort and consolation to
those who need it most.
May we all one day be reunited in your Kingdom of Love and Glory.
Help FEEL continue to assist the most vulnerable in Trinidad & Tobago.
